I just finished the migration to the new Liquid Web server. beatcanvas.com has been running on it for two days, and the other 30+ sites are now moved over and fully functioning.
Whew! It's very much akin to moving from house to another. Gotta make sure that everything is packed up and moved, nothing left behind.
But I did some tests during the migration, and the new server is faster. The six-core machine runs on 64-bit Windows Server 2008 with a ton of RAM. The sites employ IIS 7 and SQL Server 2008 Web, and each site has its own application pool.
Throughout the process, the people at LW were wonderful. Savvy, friendly, quick to respond, and they feel like a partner in my success. I couldn't ask for anything more than that.
When I wake up, I have more coding to do to wrap up this phase of Project Management in 247Toolset; then I'll tie that into Job Orders for my recruiter clients. But knowing that I have a solid basis for my clients lets me launch back into sales, which should be fun with the new capabilities of the 247Toolset platform.
