Bigma has been the My Opera master database server for many years. When I joined the My Opera team, in November 2007, it was already in service.
Lately Bigma served as secondary master since after the master-master switch.
I remember at least 3 total panic crashes of this machine, but even with some shaking, she recovered and was up and running again, so let's all say thank you to bigma. She is probably in servers heaven already
And of course, say welcome to Bigdog (why oh why we have these silly names? that is now our shiny new secondary master database. Just to leave a trace for the future, this server has got:
- 2 x Xeon X5560 (quad cores)
- 64 Gb of RAM
- 600 Gb of 15krpm disks in RAID 0+1
So, earlier this week we switched bigdog for bigma as our new secondary master database. We will soon be re-testing the master failover procedure, hopefully without problems
