What does this mean? Well, more definitely means better. Better for you! With more and more members joining Half Our Deen by the day and approaching the 1000 member mark, we are being proactive and taking the proper measures to add new servers to our back end to facilitate a more efficient user experience.
Here is the 411 on that:
For you silly =)
A new shiny server.
For those familiar with the technical aspect of servers, here are the specs:
Processor: 2 x Intel® Xeon® Quad Core Processors – E5530
(8M Cache, 2.40 GHz, 5.86 GT/s Intel® QPI)
RAM: 4 GB DDR3-1333 Registered ECC
Hard Drive: 250 GB SATA2
In layman’s terms, very fast!
In a Lucky server room somewhere.
We are hoping to have your new server up and running within the next week or so. It has been ordered. We will keep you updated InshAllah.
The matching service is one of our main features and uses up most of the current server’s resources. Most sites have everything on 1 server which causes issues with load balancing, not to mention if that server went down, the whole site would go down with it. The new server will facilitate a faster and improved matching service. It will also balance the resources between our front end, data base and our application layer. If the matching service were to ever go down, this would not affect the main site since it is stored on its own server. In summary, a good move. Alhamdulillah!
With every new business small issues and problems do occur. Forgive us for any shortcomings experienced, but it is a learning process for us all With a great technical team behind HOD, we are working hard to implement new functional and fun features for you. Our goal is to give you an amazing and unique service at a ridiculously inexpensive price! $5-$9 a month. A fraction of what other Muslim Matrimonial sites charge single Muslims these days. If you have a feature in mind, let us know below with your comments.
