Some News About Musicbrainz-Mirror

Hey People!

Almost a year after my initial post in 2014 I wanted to talk to you about some things that have happened since back then. =)

First, I want to apologize for all the downtime lately. It has been necessary  to update the server to the newest MusicBrainz VM released on 2015-08-06 and to put a loadbalancer in action.

Yes, you heard right! Now a loadbalancer splits the traffic evenly among two individual mirrors, which should increase the availability and response times allot.

As you guys also care about the data beeing up-to-date, the servers are setup to automatically reindex the database, taking turns on a daily basis. This way there always should be at least the power of one server available at your service while the other one is updated.

How to get your search done you ask? Just use http://musicbrainz-mirror.eu:5000 as always.

Last but not least, I want to thank all the people who did send me delivered food and beer by using the “Chip-In” button on the right hand side of this page. You helped me through all those hours of headache setting everything up! Highly appreciated! 😉

Cheers

Tobias
