New LQ Infrastructure
February 1, 2008 2 Comments
I am happy to report that LQ is getting a brand new infrastructure and moving to a new data center. This has been in the works for a while, but implementation is now well under way. The new site should be both faster and more reliable. LQ Radio has already been moved to the new platform and can be used for testing the new setup. If you have any issues with LQ Radio, please let me know ASAP.
For those interested in the technical details… We’re now using nginx to load balance multiple back end apache servers. All content is being served off of an OCFS2 iSCSI partition. We’re sticking with the same master/slave MySQL replication setup that has been in production for years, although we are moving to MySQL 5.0.x now. If there are any other specific questions people are interested in, I’d be happy to answer them.
