As you may already know, we've ordered new hardware to replace a database machine. This is going to take at least two weeks to be delivered and deployed.

 

Stardock has kindly offered to host our data store from one of our mysql servers over to an iSCSI target on their SAN. DaveLegg carried out this work yesterday and I can already see the benefits here.

 

So thanks to Stardock for looking out for us, and to DaveLegg, Redmak and Timan for all of the work being carried out behind the scenes, it's much appreciated!

 

Onward and upwards! :D

Are you guys thinking of upgrading to Microsoft SQL Server 2014 or maybe MariaDB or something?
