After running into a recent hardware failure, I've decided to move my servers to fast SSD based primary storage and a reliable mirrored RAID of HDDS for backups, and data that wont suffer from slightly slower speeds. Also welcomed, is the new Status Page that I hope to maintain if stuff goes awry again.
Ads and why they are gone
For a while, my servers would inject ads automatically into non-critical html-based pages. After running for a couple months, and yeilding pocket lint and a paperclip as payment, I've decided its not worth polluting pages with risqué ads. So I've pulled them. Enjoy the clean pages.
Server changes and downtime
You may have noticed that all our services were down for around a day. We recently changed server hardware, and while the initial plan was to move virtual hdds to the new host, an issue appeared that made this difficult. As a result, all vhdds needed to be rebuilt. We will be demoing the hardware change, and as long as all is well this is where we will stay. Otherwise, we will rollback to the old server. Time will tell how this goes.
What to expect here
Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what I'll be putting here. Possibly links to software downloads, possibly info on upcoming releases. Since this is just a landing page, I'm not too worried about it right now.
Welcome to Virulent
Virulent and a few services are undergoing some redesigns, but everything should start to look nice and shiny. As you've probably found out, there's not much here unless you know what you're looking for.
