Planned maintenance window on March 24, 2019, 06:00 UTC+1

Hello there!

In order to improve WebTranslateIt’s performance we will do an important hardware upgrade to WebTranslateIt’s servers.

In order to do this upgrade we will need to be unavailable on Sunday, March 24th 2019, 06:00 UTC+1 as we move our database to a new server. We expect the downtime to not exceed 2 hours. The website will be unavailable from Sunday, March 24th 2019, 06:00 UTC+1 to Sunday, March 24th 2019, 08:00 UTC+1

As always, we’ll keep you updated on this blog post and we’ll also post live updates on @webtranslateit on Twitter.

We apologize for this planned downtime and we hope you will appreciate the performance improvements this will allow.

PS: For the nitty-gritty details, we’re moving WebTranslateIt out of a large, single server to two smaller, newer servers with loads of RAM (we’ll have more than 4 times the amount of RAM that we currently have). This will allow for more background workers, which means faster file imports and file generations and faster suggestions. We’ll still be hosted by Leaseweb in the Netherlands which have been amazing in the past 3 years.
