My sites have finally migrated to dedicated hosting environment. Both of them:
3 years at shared hosting environment
Yesterday they were still (and had been for the last 3 years) hosted at shared hosting environment (ASP.NET applications and MSSQL databases). I want to thank people at parking.ru for their best service. However, the traffic gained significant growth in the last half year or so and it just became less and less reliable. Especially x2line suffered from pressure and even experienced downtimes here and there.
100% uptime migration
Geographically the sites moved about 20000 km. to US. While being 100% of the time up and running. If you use MSSQL as your database server I strongly recommend Red-Gate SQL Bundle for MSSQL database synchronization (schema and data). After synchronizing application files and data - you just change nameserver records and let both versions of the application run until nameserver records info is propagated all over.
I can finally feel the real speed and scale capabilities of the application. It IS fast. Yet to complete different configuration optimizations to the server, databases and applications.
"Et taintement, a nous deux!"
