First of all, let me give a huge thanks to everyone who helped us stress test the new infrastructure on our beta site and using our Translation service.
We’re feeling pretty confident that our new infrastructure is ready to go, so we’re moving up our planned migration to tomorrow, July 22nd at 11pm EDT
Normally our upgrades don’t require any downtime, but since we are migrating to new infrastructure we’re going to give ourselves an hour. We don’t expect it will take that long but this gives us a bit of a buffer in case anything unexpected pops up.
We’ll pause any game timers while everything is going on and we’ll make a few announcements between now and then. If you want to play a game during that time period, or if you want to hang around and chat about how awesome we are then hop over to our beta site which will be online and available throughout the window:
We reset the beta site again a few days ago so you’ll probably end up needing to make a new account. To be clear, nothing is going away on the production site.
Once the window is over we’ll make another announcement and let everyone know how things went and if everything is running smoothly. Thanks again for your patience and understanding, we’re really excited about this migration. As I mentioned in another post, we’ve outgrown our existing hosting provider and by doing this it’s going to give us the ability to move OGS forward more quickly… both in implementing features, and by scaling out to improve the performance of the service world wide. We have some great things coming up soon!
I’m happy to answer any and all questions and concerns either here or in the English channel on the main site or the beta site.
