SERVER UPGRADE IN QUEUE - WILL HAVE SOME DOWNTIME!
Hi Folks, hows it going? Seems all great looking at your emails & reviews!! We see mainly 2 requests prominent nowadays - ability to block user & separate Hindi English texts. We will begin working on both points very soon!
However, this post is to tell about a nice to have problem that a growing startup faces (that we faced 3 time prior already) - server chocking. You must have seen lately the app has having intermittent downtime - and you guessed it right - which is because of sudden jump in users due to our super active consistent work in Android. Only last month we added almost double the number of android users than the prior highest record!!
So, in that regard, we are now shifting to a new powerful server - not just powerful, a 5 times powerful server than current!! Whoa! It should care about the app speed for at least one year now! The earlier it starts to choke, the better :).
We are already in process of migration. And as includes a certain downtime (5 min - 6 hours user to user depending on various factors), we will aim for India Late night time.
Hope to see you on new server very soon!!
