Migrating to new hosting provider

Hi folks! I just wanted to provide a quick update, that I will be making some changes over the next couple of weeks to my site.

For the past 5 years or so, I was running this site on Amazon Web Services and for the most part it has worked out really well. I started on an EC2 micro instance that had 600 GB of memory and then went to a new version that allowed 1 GB of memory. I was also heavily reliant on Amazon’s CDN to help me pull it off. I was really surprised the system performed with such limited memory.

For the past 2 months, I have been testing with Windows Azure and I have been very impressed, as well as learning a new way to do the cloud. This past week, I decided to go a new compute type of VM and the performance has been amazing! I am now working on automating my backups and changing to Azure storage for my video streaming.

In addition, to that I am also looking at making changes to the colors and theme layout. My initial thinking is that I will move to a lighter color scheme to highlight my color selections from my blog postings better. I also ended up migrating the web server to a different operating system.

I do not always say this, but I am very grateful for all of my readers. It is very exciting for me to check on this site and see the number of active users that access this content everyday.

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the performance, plus the new designs that are yet to come!
