[COMPLETED] Extended Downtime Notification - 2020/06/24

We are planning on upgrading soon (tm! ha!) - And you are right, this is one of several DB boxes we’ll be evaluating to see which direction we should be going.

Do we want hundreds of low clock speed cores, or mere dozens of high clock speed cores.

And speaking of speed… today was our first automated DT since putting this AMD box into production mid week, and not surprising, it is our fastest DT in over 4 years!

I asked what would improve tidi not will this upgradr/test improve tidi.

what about storage, is the database on SSD’s drivers? that switch often requires a new SAN device because you can’t simply pull out hard drives from a RAID array :)))

Most of the DB is on SSD already, but we have some secondary files with low frequency data on a pool of spindle disks (100+ disks). More fun news on that to come as well!
