Server Migration [Complete]

Over the next couple of days, I will be migrating the Teknik Services to their own dedicated server. This is still hosted in the same rack system, but is now on a server blade dedicated to Teknik. Along with the benefits of separating the scope of the servers, the new server is much more powerful, and provides some technological improvements as well.

The new server specs are as follows:

Dell PowerEdge R710

  • (2x) Intel Xeon x5650 6 Core CPU @ 2.66 GHz, 12MB Cache
  • (4x) Hynix 8GB 2Rx4 PC3-10699R DDR3-1333Mhz ECC REG Memory
  • (1x) Samsung 850 Evo 500GB SSD
  • Windows Server 2016 Datacenter
  • SQL Server 2016
  • IIS 10

Some of the software improvements are HTTP/2 support, TLS improvements, improved database caching, and other things which should help with the performance.

Throughout the migration, you may notice brief periods where a service may be down. This is temporary to make sure there is no data loss during the migration of that service. Most will not have any significant downtime, except the mail server, which will need to be shut down while we transfer everything to the new server.

Thank you for your patience!
