Upgrading the Evernote Infrastructure [Brief Downtime at 9am PT]

Posted: 11 Aug 2012 08:31 AM PDT

Over the past few months we have been busy moving the Evernote service to a new datacenter. This new facility is with a top tier service provider and gives us plenty of room for future growth. Not only that, but it also means that your Evernote experience will be faster and more reliable. Most of the new datacenter work has been happening quietly behind the scenes. However, there are some parts of the service which require a brief downtime in order to be moved.

This morning, August 11th at 9am PT, we will have a brief scheduled downtime during which our Operations team will upgrade the central Evernote user database, known as the UserStore. Once the process is complete, the UserStore will be on new hardware at the new data center with three times as much memory, twice as much CPU, and much faster storage than its 4.5-year-old predecessor. This upgrade and move is a key milestone of our datacenter project and is one of the few remaining components that need to be relocated.
