For all hosting accounts under CONSUL Hosting platform:

Wwe would like to advise you of scheduled maintenance on the CONSUL server on April 27, 2012, from 22:00 til 0600 CST. Actual downtime for this upgrade will range from 10 - 30 minutes each. Our goal is to provide you with the most dependable and flexible hosting infrastructure in the industry. To ensure the most reliable service, we are planning a maintenance window which may temporarily affect your services. Improvements made in a controllable and pro-active fashion will significantly reduce the risk of unplanned incidents.

We appreciate your patience as we make these pro-active changes. We will be upgrading this server to new version (CentOS 6.x) and we will also be doing an architecture change from 32bit to 64bit. This will allow higher memory usage by different services on the server itself, and will provide a more stable hosting platform for your sites and your clients.Thank you


We have started migration for all customers on the server mentioned above There are many benefits to this move and some are outlined below -

1) The new datacenter provides each rack with redundant 10 Gig hookups allowing for the least amount of network disruption possible in case of attacks or abuse.

2) The server features a RAID SSD array for MySQL and OS partitions. This allows for the fastest possible access to your databases.

3) The server has twice the amount of ram than the older server. This would allow further caching of IO which is generally the bottle neck on shared hosting services.



All clientss sitting under VIENZEH platform would be affected as the upgrade to new DC requires for new IP address allocations.
