Keeping everyone in the loop, I wanted to share the latest regarding RentPost’s infrastructure and our current initiatives moving forward as we prepare for a move of our production environment.
Over the past couple months we’ve been experiencing increasingly large usage numbers. This is great, we couldn’t be happier! Thank you all for the continued support! As a result of this, we began an overhaul of our backend infrastructure and are happy to report that we’ve completed the testing of our new systems in their new home.
With this completed, Saturday night, November 17th, RentPost will begin the official deployment of our systems to their new home. With this migration, we do expect some downtime during the actual move, and following the move for DNS propagation (for your computer and network to update itself with our new IP addresses (location)). As with DNS propagation, your mileage will vary in terms of completion. However, typically this process completes in a couple hours. We expect the entire move process to only result in a few hours of total downtime.
We’ve scheduled this move at a time to cause the least amount of disruption to you and your business. We’re excited about the move and the speed benefits we’ll be able to provide everyone moving forward. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to comment here, or contact support directly.
