Silverfir Downtime

Posted by Deliverator on May 28th, 2006

Silverfir, Ryan’s server which provides hosting for this and several other blogs, has had a number of hardware issues the last few weeks. We are looking to migrate silverfir to redundant server hardware and colo(cate) it in the near future. Currently, Silverfir is hosted on ordinary desktop hardware on a residential cable modem. As such, hard drive failures and other hardware issues (that server hardware can handle without blinking) can result in serious downtime. Nobody is hosting anything too important on Silverfir, but it would still be nice to get Silverfir onto more reliable hardware (and hardware that can be remotely administered easily).
