Status Updates By Team (*non-voice* updates)


  • was migrated by solarce and cturra, to our phx1 data center last week, with no downtime and 1.25 hours of read-only mode.
  • Thanks to jason, moved to our new scl3 data center on Saturday. This leaves one last website to move in our sjc1 exodus:
  • Beefed up our generic webhosting cluster in phx1 which should add speed to some sites hosted there such as wikimo, blogmo, getfirebug, firefoxflicks, mozillians, qmo, and tbpl, just to name a few.
  • a few of our team attended Asterisk training this week. Though vidyo has become a popular option for communications, we still have quite a system of office and remote phones and conferencing to support.
  • More servers moved out of our sjc1 data center last week. 3 more weeks to go in this migration!




  • Apps-in-the-Cloud servers launching this week in support of the Marketplace ecosystem
  • High-volume key signing also hoping to launch for Marketplace receipt signing.
