Today we got attacked.. BADLY.
Now we get attacked every now and again, but with the addition of our JCMP3 server we got attacked rather harshly. This seemed to be due to our popularity on the game.
To prevent this happening again we have done the following:
- Invested in a bigger server which will host JCMP3 and ARK
- Moved JCMP3 tonight
- Put in some precautions to hopefully help mitigate problems before they arise again
- Changed how some of the software runs to reduce latency.
We love you guys and to keep you with us we have purchased a rather expensive server for JCMP3 and ARK. IT has the following spec:
- i7 6th Gen
- 480 GB SSD
- 64 GB RAM
With a rather decent NIC and DOS mitigation this should help with latency and give a lot better performing server.
We will be moving ARK over to this new server in the next few days. NOTHING WILL BE LOST, THE IP WILL JUST CHANGE BUT EVERYTHING WILL STAY THE SAME BUT THINGS WILL RUN FASTER!
This has caused us to add more to our budget which currently is exiting my pocket. If you'd like to help us pay for the new servers please consider a small donation to https://donate.jrnetwork.net every bit helps. We don't make money from running JR. We do it to keep you guys happy.
We hope you enjoy our new server and we hope to provide you the best servers for years to come!
