Hi all,

With this latest outage of MOULa, I moved all the servers onto new generation hardware! Whew! Not only does this put MOULa on better footing and more flexibility to upscale and downscale servers, better backup, etc. The big win is that it should cut the monthly server cost in half!
Also, the servers went from running Windows 2003 Server to Windows 2016 Server. Heh, only a 13 year jump - which is about 500 years in the computer years.

The end result should be no difference to y'all explorers.

Thanks,
Chogon

Chogon :)
This sounds great cutting the cost in half :lol:
Does it seem likely the " New Accounts" will come online soon and hence more revenue also ?
Maybe it also opens the door for new content?
Cyan rocks and is the best :!:

Thanks so much for working on this, Chogon!

As long as URU supporters maintain regular donation levels, I hope this halving of server costs will result in much better CAVCON stats!

Just checked server status for the past 12 hours and the servers aren't even breathing heavier (in other words, they are not working hard at all). Which is great news. We should know more after the weekend.

We are working on a something for new accounts. The first phase should be ready soon - sorry I don't have an exact date but it should be in the next month.


Thanks,
Chogon

Personally, I don't expect anything more precise than a soon(tm). Honest thanks for keeping us up to date. Maybe, when the registering is up again, well may be able to give the new servers a real test. ;)

Chogon that sounds fantastic :!: The long awaited " New Accounts" will help a lot with the CAVCON I would think also ! And the smoother Server seems to be running great so far that I have seen. Looks like everything is falling into place for new content also .... /cheers
:D
A big Thank You from all of us !

Thanks, Chogon!

(I noticed that the Minkata shard had a recent upgrade. I don't know what changed, but I keep wondering if this means updates to MOULa are in the works....)

(Oh, and the mermaids say "Thank you!", too!) :D

Great news! Hopefully this means Uru will continue running for another 13 years (at least!). Thanks Chogon!

Thank you, Chogon. I hope the Account Creation back to life. :D And if the Gahressen Wall Game is working and more ages are added and the classroom with the Egg room in Kirel and the door to the Great Tree in the Watcher's Pub are open and more goodies are added then is Uru Live perfect and what should be it what promised. ;)
