Server Migration – 31 July

Over the past few months, Web traffic and usage of Feedity has increased in magnitude. We are providing a unique service to more users and delivering more custom RSS feeds than ever before. This substantial growth has made it essential for us to expand and optimize our infrastructure, while maintaining a highly-available application round-the-clock.

Considering this progression, we’ll be migrating our application server on Saturday, 31 July 2010. The new server environment will help us deliver better performance and faster feeds to Feedity customers. It will also allow us to improve the scalability and security of our core product, in alignment with our future plans.

The server migration will commence on Saturday, 31 July 2010. The actual migration and DNS changes will only take under an hour, but DNS propagation normally takes upto 24-48 hours.

During this period, user sign-ups, account upgrades and creation of new feeds through the Feed Builder will be disabled and temporarily unavailable. Existing members will still be able to login to their account (correction: login will be temporarily unavailable as well). Existing feeds will be generated and delivered as normal. This transition does not affect Corporate plan users.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We’ll post more updates before, during and after the server migration. Our best efforts will go towards resuming full services as soon as possible.

Update 1 (31 July): Server migration has commenced. Functions like login, sign-ups, account upgrades and creation/editing feeds will be temporarily unavailable.

Update 2 (31 July): Server migration is progressing as planned. We’ll be making DNS changes next. DNS propagation will takes upto 24-48 hours.

Update 3 (31 July): Server migration has completed. DNS propagation will takes upto 24-48 hours.

Update 4 (2 August): DNS seems to have propagated. All functions are active. Thanks to all Feedity users for their support and understanding. Please contact us if you face any issues.
