The Cloud Webserver - New & Improved!

It seems like I'm writing a lot to the forums these days, but we're just trying to do our best to keep everyone informed on what is a significant infrastructure change, and, we hope, a good one.

As I said in my last posting, monitoring the new cloud instance, and our members voicing concerns, indicated to us that we needed to at least try run the web server on a larger virtual instance. This has been done now, and the webserver is running on something that is basically twice as powerful as what we were running on yesterday.

What we are hoping is that this will address the issues we saw last night of not being able to get DSS images on VSP and having to wait several minutes to upload data to the AID. As usual, please let us know what you find.

Thank you!
