    Question EduServ - Sepcs?

    Hello!

    I was just wondering if anyone knew what the specs of the server that is used to host the website. As far as I can tell (and I use this website a lot) it is always quick to respond, and the fact that it sends email notifications about subscriptions, etc, it must be quite beastly!

    I know we're hosted on a cluster out of a German datacentre, and that @ZeroHour is always messing with various CDNs to ensure we get better performance.

    he's the man with the plan

    @Domino ... shhhh ... don't tell him the secret! No-one must know that the cluster has been expanded from just @Geoff to include @localzuk and @FN-GM

    I am pretty much the only one with deep info
    I have been working on an article (registered users only probably) outlining what we run roughly.
    Needless to say its not a sole server and the setup has been tweaked quite hard to get max performance.
    We do have the odd outage but its generally me working on the servers at night and very brief.
    The setup is always being changed though.

    I always though @ZeroHour was just a magic ninja and the website was crafted one night from rocks and he turned it into something wonderful

    Sounds about right, if you come to BETT you might even see a nice little glimpse of him
