Server Upgrades

Recommended Posts

Over the past 24 hours, I have been working on upgrading the servers. The servers have been too unstable lately, and I just had to do something to fix that.


Our new servers use these Amazon Web Services:

  • Amazon RDS (Aurora) for the databases
    • 5 times faster than a traditional MySQL server.
    • Data is replicated on 2 nodes at 3 different data centres, thus providing 6 copies of the databases. If one copy goes down, AWS can easily use a different copy until the main copy goes back online.
    • Automatic storage scaling. The databases can grow from 1GB to 1TB, and I won't even have to do a thing to maintain the storage space.
    • Easy CPU/RAM scaling.
    • Automated, seamless backups.
    • Secure.
  • Amazon EC2 for the apache server
    • Uses high frequency Intel Xeon E5-2666 v3 (Haswell) processors optimized specifically for EC2. The server is fast!
    • Easy CPU/RAM scaling.
    • Reliable.
    • Secure.
  • Amazon EBS for data storage
    • Reliable.
    • Secure.
    • Consistent, low-latency performance.
    • Seamless backups.
    • Easy to scale.

All in all, the new server is fast, reliable, secure, and easy to manage/scale. I know how important botting around the clock to everyone is, and I want to ensure that our users will be able to do so without worrying about server instability.


On a final note, I'd like to thank you guys for putting up with the downtime recently. I am therefore giving an addition of 2 days of VIP/VIPE to all existing VIP/VIPE members.


Enjoy using our blazing fast server! I know many of you have already noticed the performance increase.

Great update! :)


Also, thanks for the extra VIP man, much appreciated! 


Edit : It seems when the extra membership was added, it knocked me down to VIP instead of VIP-E. Anyway of looking into this @TRiLeZ? I know you've been working vigorously the past 24 hours but if you could look into I'd appreciate more than you'd imagine.

Thanks for all your hard work! Its amazing what you do. Lastly, thanks for giving the extra VIP/VIP-E time for all the people who keep complaining about the downtime when you've done the best job you could possibly do!

      Important: Since the downloadable RS client uses Java 7, it will no longer be compatible with Looking Glass. To make up for this, we will add support for using other clients such as RuneLite (at a later date).

      This change was necessary to allow us to use Java 8 syntax. It also paves the way for Java 9/10/11 support.
