Good morning folks,
I wanted to start out with an update on last night. We had very slow response times overnight in the United States at zoom levels greater than 15. We were able to trace the root cause to a failing SSD in Kansas. Much much credit to the folks at Joe’s Data Center http://www.joesdatacenter.com. This should now be resolved.
Now onto the awesomeness. We’re ahead of schedule for flipping on our update process. I had hoped that we could do this by 12/25 but it’s looking more like we’ll run the first update around 11/26. This is a HUGE deal it marks the transition of our rendering from the initial bulk phase into sustainment and validates our update approach. More details to follow as we have them.
