This is a statement made by Damian concerning the problems
at UPATSIX. Damian is the Site Owner.
"""""I've made quite a few changes to our systems over the
last few weeks and spoken with a few providers as well to
diagnose some of the connectivity issues we've been having.
I also want to thank those of you who have been working with
AT&T and AOL and getting them on the ball to correct some of
their issues in regards to getting to our network.
I've recovered all of the data on our server and
reconfigured the DNS and security here but there are 2-3
more issues that I feel need to be looked at. (Things I want
to implement for the below redundancy and security setups ).
Expect some on and off while I work with other ISP's and
make some tweaks over here though when we're complete, we'll
be looking at the following benefits:
* OC3 Connectivity - very fast connection with multiple fall
back routes out to the internet [ in place ]
* Redundant power - Redundant power supplies working and our
racks are hooked up to a generator in case of power outages
[ in place ]
* Disk redundancy - RAID 10 mirroring on our web, sql, and
disk servers [ 75% complete - 2 machines left ]
* Machine redundancy - Multiple fail over machines (if one
machine has hardware issues, another will pick up the load
via heartbeat) [ approx 50% done, current project ]
I guess luckily for Kirsten I'm not working at the moment
and am able to focus on quite a few of the issues that have
needed my attention for quite some time.
I expect no other outages but do plan on upgrading the board
over the next 30 days. The biggest issue will be data
conversion and I'll post when that's about to happen.
