MySQL Performance Blog gets new server.

Try number two. We have moved to the new server yet again, now it is server hosted by ServerBeach as recommended by Kevin Burton and few other guys.

Lets hope this will run stable and we’ll not need to move it back in emergency in less than a week as we had to last time.

Up to this point it all was running pretty well, with only minor issues. We got CentOS 5 on the box as we wanted, however we could not request custom partitioning – I really prefer to keep all important data on LVM volume so it is easy to backup.

    I second the recommendation to go with softlayer should you need a 3rd try – you won’t regret it :-)
