We've finally moved the site from the 8+ year old servers to the new speedy boi EPYC box. This gives us much more flexibility to add cores (all of them) and memory (all of it) when needed. We can also easily expand the space on the server. The forums were moved over a few weeks ago and the site move is after around 3-4 months of me working on it. I normally don't go in depth but as it's such as big change I thought I would for once. It gives us an up to date OS and programs and has allowed us to make tuning tweaks that we were unable to do on the old site as we had no "real" development area to test before deploying, having 256 threads now lets us easily do this . The swap happening with 5 minutes of down time was a highlight for myself personally . You'll notice the site is quicker due to a few different reasons, Updated caching system, updated software stack, more cores and RAM, quicker cores and RAM and NVMe storage in raid in case we do need to hit disk. This updated OS opened up software optimisations such as H2 in nginx which simplified means images will download quicker on the site if there are a few on the page. We've also moved the database server from being on a separate machine to being on a local machine communicating via a unix socket to squeeze even more performance. I've tested as much as possible but as @David pointed out there are still a few kinks which I either couldn't have seen without the site being connected to the forums or just didn't catch. We've done some benchmarking and already seen the response time for requests improve by 20% up to even 900% in some specific use cases. This is only the start of tech upgrades we'll be doing to bit-tech over the coming 6-12 months. We've still got a fully automated benchmark suite, A new CMS allowing users to "interact" with benchmarks and images and a secret project we've got in the works.
