Mycotopia is now using a new platform for DNS, CDN caching, attack and spam mitigation for example. While there are many more features that are and will be available to us for scaling, these are the big hitters that will make an instant difference in the quality of services we bring to our community.
DNS is simple enough.
CDN Caching will spread our static content across 28 servers which are geographically located around the world. So no matter where you're coming from you'll likely have an awesome and speedy experience.
DDoS and Advanced Attack Mitigation is the shit. If you're using TOR or other obfuscation techniques you may be prompted for a CAPTCHA code before being allowed to access the site, but it should be one time until your IP changes. Everything will still work as normal, but we're now protected with a force shield. :)
Always Online is something that comes about as a result of the CDN. Basically our content will be online 24/7 no exceptions. In the event our server goes offline a static read-only version of the site will remain available indefinitely until service is restored. Our Archives and Vaults are on the chopping block in favor of a better technology - no spoilers, sorry - and once complete will remain online 24/7/365/∞ indefinitely.
SSD Cloud Storage is the *hard drive* of the future and will allow us to have instantaneous transfer and migrations as we scale, plus the speed of a plasma enhanced warp core of the Millennium Falcon from which to access our content. Enjoy.
Bottom line: It's awesome. It's setup as of today. You're going to love it.
