Server Migration

I own a Utah web hosting business called Preciant Hosting. Recently I have started experiencing several problems with one of my servers. It would constantly go up and down. My monitoring software (Nagios for those that are interested) was showing that the server would be up for an hour or so, and then go down for three-four hours while I tried to get the data center technicians to reboot the machine. Being as how I provide services for several customers from that machine, this up and down time is NOT acceptable.

I had previously decided to purchase some servers (rather than use dedicated servers spread around the nation) and move into a local data center. Since I work for a company that provides web hosting and other data center services, (such as colocation, which is what I needed) I got some rack space in the Fibernet & Nethosting data center and ordered my servers.

The servers have finally started to come in and I am slowly setting them up and moving them into the data center. I am planning on sharing all of my wo’s involved in migrating all of my servers and I am also planning on sharing my solutions to the problems

Return often to find out about my trials and solutions.
