We're pleased to let you know about some exciting upgrades that will roll out soon and will benefit all LightCMS content management system customers. As many of you know, LightCMS was acquired earlier this year by publicly-traded silicon valley firm, NetSuite Inc. NetSuite is making significant investment into the LightCMS product, including a bolstering of our hosting infrastructure and dev ops support.
The LightCMS dev ops team has already been expanded significantly, and this new team is drawing up plans for a major expansion of LightCMS's hosting infrastructure. This plan, which will amount to a 50% increase in hosting and server resources, will begin rolling out in the next few weeks. The expansion includes:
- Improving our concurrent connection capabilities
- Increasing our storage capacity
- Upgrading our load balancing systems
- Many more improvements to our front and back-end infrastructure
In order to bring these new systems online, we're scheduling a maintenance window of two hours beginning at 12:01am CDT (GMT-5) on Saturday, October 26, 2013. During this maintenance window, we anticipate a total downtime of approximately 30 minutes with the possibility of longer downtimes if unforeseen complications arise. As always, you can check our status page at status.lightcms.com for updates on the progress of this maintenance.
We're excited to bring you these upgrades as we continue to provide you with the leading solution for websites and online stores. Upgrades of this magnitude will position LightCMS for the exponential growth we anticipate in years to come. Exciting days are ahead!
