Moving …

September 08, 2019

A few weeks ago we got a sad message from Joyent; they have informed us that they are shutting down their public infrastructure, where we have been hosting Clipperz since we started the project back in 2007.

We briefly moved out of Joyent (due to concerns about our safety), only to return back on their European infrastructure, for technical merits.

This move involves also some work on the application, as we need to replace the use of Joyent Object Storage (also known as Manta) for storing attachments, with a different solution.

We have already selected our new host, and our service will be running from their green data center.

We will do our best to keep up with the same level of performance and reliability Joyent has helped us achieve until now.

We are aiming to move everything (site, application, data) to the new host by the end of September. We will definitely provide further feedback as soon as we will have more details available.

We would like to take this opportunity to remember all our users, that this would be an excellent time to refresh their Offline Copy and to always keep their towel ready at hand.

Goodbye Joyent, and thanks for all the fish.
