[US Server] AZ Server Upgrade - 3 July 2020 - 10PM SGT Time

  • June 20, 2020 by Tech #1

Again, another server tech refresh in this year. This time, we will be refreshing our servers located in Phoenixnap DC. 

We are upgrading the CPU model into E5-2695v3 (dual) with higher benchmark score and introducing IntelĀ® SSD DC P4510 as our data volume and 2 x Samsung 860 SSD for the OS boot. We believe this will bring higher throughput and IOPS as the new server will be powered under 10Gbps port. The server also runs on dual power supply, to prevent outage on single side PDU

As part to reinvest and pamper the customers with much benefits, each customer will be assigned to 12 CPU instead of standard 8 CPUs.  We strongly believe NVMe raid will be much needed performance improvement and fulfill your website spike traffic.

If you are affected, you shall receive a separate email on this activity.

Planned downtime will be on 3 July starting at 10PM Singapore time until completion.

You will stay on the same IP address, no change to your end. The downtime for each client will be kept minimal, with estimated of 2 hour or less, and we also will keep the latest backup to offsite location to prevent any mishap. If there is any change on the implementation date, we will send you immediate notice.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at support@sosys.net if you have any questions.

Looking forward to serve you much better!
