Splitting a single server Aegir server with multiple octopus instances into 2 or more servers and/or using a dedicated DB server

I was hoping to get some people input on the following plans I have for my Aegir install.

I have one server which is the master Aegir server with currently 4 octopus instances installed. Our main site sits on one of these and we have now decided it would be nice if there was a dedicated database server.

Is it possible and if so does anyone have any links to instructions to split/move the octopus instances to other servers. Or more importantly for me to setup a server which is just a database server.

Drupal Speed Expert | T2 Media

Employment type: 

We have a large (~40K pages) Drupal site that is just plain slower than it should be. It seems OK on the YSlow front (not great, but not horrible) and my suspicion is that it is poorly configured on the Drupal side in terms of speed.

I am looking for a consultant to come in, take a look and make some recommendations on what can be done to improve the performance of the site. Based on the recommendations, we will either implement ourselves or have you do it.

If you are interested, please reply with your background and an explanation of your expertise in this area.

Quickstart 3.0 in October 2012

Recently I've been working more with Drupal, and noticed Quickstart 1.0's post-installation fizzle: "470 days since your last update"!

I've been focused on billable time recently, but with Ubuntu 11.04 support ending 12.10, it's time to update my tools :-)

What's next for QS 3.0?

What I really wanted from QS 1.0, more than anything, was a debugger. A profiler was just icing on the cake.

Now, I really want a sensible dev/test/prod server ecosystem.

Server colocation in surrounding area

Hey all, I have been investigating the cost of collocating a server in the area or within a reasonable driving distance. I'm curious if anyone has any idea of where to look. I haven't done extensive calling/looking.

What I Am Looking For

1U to start maybe 3U later
10Mb/s or higher interconnect (preferably uncapped) I plan on doing 500Gb/month or more in transfer.

I have currently looked

Springfield underground

Their plans seems very "cheap" or rather odd with capped internet.

$50 per 1U
$40 for 2 amps? (im not sure)

    Drupal and the crashing server

    Hi all,

    I have a problem. Yesterday a very large influx of visitors to our site brought down our server! :( After some investigation we noticed that we had about 10K visitors in a 9min span before our server went down. We were told by our tech support that our server requires more memory (currently at 2GB) and to reduce the phpMemory limit (currently at 128MB) as well the the number of maximum Clients served.
