Server Upgrades Complete, MacRumors Now Snappier
MacRumors has successfully transitioned to 5 new dedicated servers, replacing our existing servers.
The upgrades were prompted by the growing popularity of the site and especially our forums which also power the comment section on all news and rumor stories. Beyond the usual daily traffic, launch event (Macworld, iPhone, Leopard) days generally see a burst of traffic which can cause "server busy" messages to appear.
These upgrades should allow the forums to continue functioning smoothly in face of ongoing growth.
