In the next couple of days we'll have about one hour of downtime as we move the site to a new server.

The exact time hasn't been nailed down.

Ah neat. Why's the site being moved?

We upgrade our hardware and software on a regular basis, as demand for the services we provide grows.

No wonder. So it's gonna be even faster then? Well, suits me!

This upgrade is really to position us for more upgrades down the line.

You should see a performance boost when the server is under heavy load though.

System loads are much lower on the new setup...

For the geeks out there, we can now use NPTL, the Native POSIX Thread Library, which is much more efficient at mapping Java threads to system threads, and since WebObjects uses Java, this is a key point.

Anyway, it's more better. :-)
