New servers. Any good?


#1

Has anyone been migrated to the new servers? Is there a noticeable improvment? Is this merely a money-saving exercise for DH, or has the speed improved also?

I’ve volunteered to move early, but am still waiting.


#2

The ones I’ve seen have noticeably superior file manipulation speeds.

Blink of an eye kinda deal.

Hmmm. That sound encouraging. I guess that’s due to the local disk rather than NFS.

Yeah, the difference is very apparent in shell. When I first witnessed the responsiveness I actually thought I’d made a typo when I didn’t have to wait at all. I considered asking to be moved as well, but the server I’m on has awesome uptime so haven’t taken the chance of getting lumped with bad neighbours.
