Website Announcement: Servers Being Upgraded This Week!

By Adam Pick on May 16, 2017

Hey Everybody!

Over the past 6 months, HeartValveSurgery.com has experienced a significant increase in website traffic. So… To accommodate all the new members of our community, I thought it was a great time to upgrade our servers.

 

 

If you’re curious… We’re shifting to a solid state drive (SSD) server system that leverages the fastest technology for serving up great educational content. Interestingly SSDs have no mechanical parts. If you like you can learn about them here.

 

 

In addition to the SSDs, we will also use a content delivery network (CDN) which has servers in 20+ countries around the world.

Thanks for your patience as we roll-out the new server system! I’m very hopeful this new system will perform much better than our older server system.

Keep on tickin!
Adam
