RIP Slicehost servers

[staff profile] mark
I just decommissioned the last two production slices we had active on Slicehost. The original load balancer slice and the admin slice.

They served us well for the ~6 months we used them. There were a number of hiccups along the way (hence our moving) but all in all it wasn't terrible. Reasonable for a beta service.

Just figured I'd note this down here.

I'd got quite a flaky impression of them, but in fairness I've no idea what levels of problems you'd normally expect to encounter on co-lo/leased/virtual servers. How many slices did DW have at peak?

At peak, for the open beta launch, I think we were at something like 40.
