Rugby News & Views From an American Perspective
I have just been informed that the Rugby America could see some downtime in the next day or so. Please do not be alarmed if you come to the site and things aren’t working. We are not shutting down or going anywhere.
I repeat… all is good. Actually things are very good judging by the number of visitors we get. The company that hosts the server for Rugby America has just completed construction on a new data center expansion, complete with advanced temperature control, custom server racks and dozens of improvements designed to provide higher quality service.
They will be moving all customer servers into the new center over the next few weeks. The Rugby America server is scheduled to be moved between 9 PM on March 16th (today) and 5 AM on March 17th (tomorrow). The wee early hours of the day are low traffic hours, so most of you will probably not even be effected. Our global fans are most likely to see any downtime.
That said, hopefully any downtime will be minimal.
As always, I thank you for coming to Rugby America and I truly hope you enjoy the content. I apologize in advance for any issues that are encountered during the server move.
