The one we're in right now is at 601 W. Polk Street in Chicago. We'll be bring up a couple more servers in Elk Grove Village. Mainly we're trying to diversify our locations so we don't have everything tied into one datacenter.

Forgot to mention that we've doubled the memory in the new servers as well. Instead of running on 4 Gigs of memory, we've doubled it to 8 Gigs.

I can tell you they are fast!
Clicking on the same section from the main page on both servers, and it is a archive section so exactly the same data to load...

Keep moving east wink

California is too far for UK sites. (186+ ms)

Any test sites to ping in the new location?

You can ping ruby.mindraven.com for our current location in Chicago. Will put up a test download file when I get a chance.

Thanks.

Could you let me know costs for larger space please as 20GB is a bit low for our liking - so would appreciate pricing options for more space and perhaps overage rates for bandwidth (although this should not be an issue)

Hey Ian, which site are you considering moving over? You can PM me if you'd rather.

It's unlisted as of yet, but what we're looking at is $5 a month for an extra 10GB of storage space, and $5 a month for an extra 100GB of monthly transfer.

I should note that this only applies to the platinum plan. Obviously lower plans, you'd just need to move up to a higher plan.

If you just need a customized plan, we can do that as well.
