ATTN ALL AU-GN USERS
AusNetworks PTY LTD (Australian Gaming Networks's Network Provider) has scheduled an outage for tonight/tomorrow 14/10/16 11pm - 15/10/16 5am. During these times AusNetworks is moving upstream providers. These means AusNetworks will have to take down the entire network physically remove all of AU-GN's servers and relocate them to another location. AusNetworks have stated that the downtime per server will be minimal and they are aiming to do the move at a non peak time. I will be attending the Data center myself to ensure the move is as smooth as possible and to assist if there are any issues during the network change.
What does this mean to me? (12ie edition)
Well you are probably 12 years old and will be in bed when we perform the move so you won't notice a thing. But essentially there will be a little downtime on your end. I will be the one dealing with the complicated stuff so all good. fall asleep at your usual bedtime your parents have set for your specific needs and when you wake up it will be like nothing has changed.
What does this mean to me? (Normal People)
For those who actually like playing AU-GN on the weekends all night and all day, yes there will be some downtime whilst we completely move networks. Everything you know and use will be shutting down this includes: Game Servers (Gmod, CSGO, Etc), Teamspeak, AU-GN.com.au and all other things associated with AU-GN. If you need help or want status updates I will be updating Spextic / Whip-Tide what is happening so please annoy him as if you were to annoy me it would slow down the time taken for the server move. If you want to skype or talk to me during the move hurry up and contact me before it happens. If you want $100 please go on teamspeak during the outage and I can arrange that.
Can you go indepth of the processes you are going to take?
As AusNetworks has expanded throughout the time AU-GN has existed they require "More Room" so they are changing providers to get ready for the expansion in the future. This forces them to remove all of their servers and move them to a different rack in the data center. Moving racks ensures expansion for the future and also has benefits for AU-GN like...
1. Australia's leading source of DDoS mitigation (110% better protection than what we currently have)
2. MORE POWER!!!!!
3. Cost savings for AU-GN if you are with the following isp's: Vodafone, IINet, Equinix or any of these: https://www.megaport.com/services/ix-connected-networks/
4. Faster CDN for clients to download files.
5. Fully Redundant Network with Fail over
6. FIBER INTERWEEBS WITH COMBINED THROUGHPUT OF 12GIGABIT
p.s whip can you go over and fix my spelling mistakes, etc I ceebs re-reading this.
