Server Upgrades for SportsCollectors.Net

SportsCollectors.Net has been consistently growing... And in order to support some of the new features I have been working on behind the scenes, we needed to make some fairly significant server upgrades.

Some of the highlights:
  • more RAM
  • faster CPUs
  • better network (more data transfer)
  • faster storage
  • new (more reliable) DNS provider

In order to accommodate the cutover to new hardware, we had a 40 minute maintenance window this morning (from 1:55-2:35AM EST) where the site was inaccessible. Efforts were made to keep downtime as short as possible - backing up, moving, restoring, and validating all of the latest data took most of that time. This is by far the smoothest migration I have executed in 20+ years of running this site. We appreciate the patience for anyone who was impacted during that window.

Just in case anyone is worried, we are not going to change the price for our premium subscription and we are still planning to keep features from our basic members. The premium package has been a really great value at $14.99 for the past 15 years and I have no plans to change that. I'm picking up the added expenses as part of my contribution to our fun hobby - you guys deserve it.
