[SG Server] SG Server Upgrade - 16 February 2015 - 8 PM Singapore Time

  • January 20, 2015 by Tech #1

Earlier this month, we bring in E3-1271v3 with MegaRaid 9271-4i raid card into one of the Indonesia server. Next month, Singapore server will totally get a great upgrade. Replacing the existing 2 year old server of 2xE5-2420 + PERC H710 512MB with the new E5-1650v3 with MegaRaid Nytro 8110-4i and higher memory speed of DDR4 2133Mhz, coupled with Raid 10 storage of SAS connection.

The benchmark for the new CPU has outperform the e5-2420. Coupled with 200GB flash memory for hot spot caching by LSI MegaRaid, the result will be much greater than having Cachecade for SSD disk. Moreover, LSI Fasthpath will be enabled also, which will give more iops to you.

With the new DD4 memory 2133Mhz vs existing 1333Mhz, you will indirectly benefit the performance gain.

This server upgrade applies to the Shared Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and VPS Hosting clients who are subscribed to SG server location in Telin.

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 1 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.

Thank you for your continued support and look forward to serving you again this year.

Kind Regards,

BK Web Solutions
