Well, this weekend was a busy one. I just finished a marathon run (that took a few hours longer than expected), moving Interscape's hosting environment off of a Windows Server 2003/Virtual Server-based setup, and onto our own private rack with new AMD servers and the Windows Server 2008 November CTP. The website is still being hosted off of WS2003 for the next few days, while I get the IIS7 web servers ready, but my entire network is now fully virtualized on Microsoft's new Hyper-V technology. I've had some interesting experiences getting that going, and I hope to be able to blog about it in the next few days.
You should see speed improve over the next couple days as I get all the kinks ironed out, but if you run into any hiccups, please let me know. Thanks!
