UPGRADING SERVERS! (donations welcome!)

Postby dyn » Sat Nov 25, 2017 15:58 UTC

There are currently a few issues with COD4 servers, and hardware is from years ago, so an upgrade is long overdue. We can do this with the current hosting, so IPs for existing games stays the same. It is also possible to get additional hosting if needed. Hardware must be capable of running a bit more than required, so there is room for extra load and possible additional game servers.

Most suitable for this, regarding price/performance ratio, is Intel Xeon E3-12xx series (v2+ preferably) or some good i7 offer. Today you can get initial E3-127x offers for $99-$109/month, but we can get a special deal for only $79.99/mo! The only condition is to pay 6 months in advance, there is also additional yearly discount, but the difference is minimal. On top of that we can get even better setup for a little more, but this largely depends on your contributions.

Right now the minimum for 6-month payment is $479, with an option to get more power for ~$550-590:

Keep in mind, above numbers are total $ needed to upgrade servers. We also need to pay hosting with existing hardware, so in case we get less, we keep running things as before.
