If you’re reading this, your DNS has updated and you are now viewing the ultra shit-hot version of SMS Text News. At least, that’s the concept. That’s the hope.
We deleted our infrastructure. We are now infrastructure-less. Instead, we’re worth a few hundred meg and distributed across goodness knows how many servers, courtesy of Mosso, the cloud-computing company.
Aye, that’s right. We don’t have a single point of failure any more. Previously, we existed on a single, static (and fast, but, not really) dedicated server. It’s our duty, we reckoned, to support new and emerging technologies. And, obviously, if it sounds shit-hot, it might be worth a poke about. And the Mosso service definitely sounds interesting.
You should, for example, get a blazingly fast SMS Text News service, every time you access. The site’s code and databases are distributed throughout Mosso’s architecture so, theoretically, we can scale to the size of Microsoft.com without doing anything at all.
It’ll at least solve the digg-death issues that we sometimes get when too much traffic hit our server and shut it down.
Got any feedback? Is it any faster for you? I hope you notice some improvement!
