You may have noticed recently a few changes around here at Ausdroid – and they way you’ll have noticed is (a) we’ve been a bit quiet on posts for the last few days, and (b) the forum has been up and down like a yoyo, and our main site has had periods of downtime.

Unfortunately this has been unavoidable but we have worked round the clock to make our recent upgrade as smooth as possible. Where once there was one server providing Ausdroid, there are now three (well four, actually) – a front-end load balancer, two web servers and a back-end server which isn’t world-visible. This might be a bit technical for you – but the end result is easy to understand – even under heavy load, the Ausdroid site should continue to load nice and quick for you.

We’ve spent a bit of time and money on this to get it right, so hopefully you’ll notice going forward that things are bit more reliable and responsive around here. If you’d like to know more about what’s changed, let us know in the comments and we can always elaborate a little!

Thanks guys,

Chris
Director, Ausdroid P/L

    Guys is there any facility to donate for the server.

      No one has ever asked whether they could before. We wouldn’t say no, but equally, we’re not asking for donations.

        I would consider some sort of donation, might be worth putting it to the readers.  Sort of a member if you like.  I would certainly pay a monthly donation to reduce the number of ads particularly.

        Regardless keep up the good work

    Cool.  I guess that means you’re getting a good audience.  Well done Buzz.
