Upgrading our database server (again)

August 28th, 2011

Database ServerYes, we’re upgrading the hardware of the Collectorz.com central online database server again.

This server is the host of all five online media databases, for movies, books, music, comic books and video games.
In other words, this central machine is the source of all search results, the items details and all cover images that you get when using your Add Automatically screen.

Our Connect web-apps, the online editions of our software, are also located on this database server.

And finally, it runs the online part of the CLZ Barry system. It is this machine that generates your Barry ID for you and what lets Barry and Buddy “talk to each other”.

You can imagine how important this server is to us and to you all, our customers :-) Ensuring this system is fast and always up and running is essential. So that’s why we’re giving it more powerrr !
