Scheduled maintenance tonight

Posted by Otis Chandler on September 30, 2009
Hi all,

We are moving to a new datacenter tonight, and Goodreads will be down from approximately 8:00pm pst to 11:00pm pst. Our poor old servers have served us well, but their time is past and we have some young, hungry, and very *fast* servers waiting to go.

We know Goodreads hasn't been the fastest of websites lately, and this should really improve things if it all goes well.

Wish us luck!

I know how heavy those servers are; especially when you try to put them in racks at chest or head height. :)
