We have a new physical server operating!
This server has plenty of resources available (specs below) so we can run just about all the servers we want!
After a few weeks of sourcing parts, build, and some troubleshooting, it's safe to say the hardware is in a stable and reliable state, which means we've already begun to load game servers onto it.
We'll be spinning up new versions of the servers/games:
We've been quiet on the website for quite some time, but we haven't been idle or dying.
Over a few months, we've made significant progress on our goal of cloud server hosting. If you check the news here often (however unlikely that may be) you probably noticed the performance improvement for the website, and potentially the TeamSpeak server. This is because they have been moved to a cloud instance, (which is primarily better just because it's not in my house) where it has much better connection, disk speed (all SSD), and better processors.
The website and TeamSpeak aren't the only things moving to the cloud. Our Gmod DarkRP server is successfully running on one of our gameserver hosting instances, and you can join the server at solsane-gmod.robosane.net!
Read on to see the progress that we've made in bringing server hosting to you!
During planned downtime starting on Nov. 5, we encountered a few hardware issues with our primary community server. (All hosted and rented servers along with voice and web communications are normal.) Through the week until Nov. 12 we were busy fixing the community server, however it is still not yet in an 'ideal' state.
Until further notice, most of our community servers will be offline, including Minecraft, Terraria, Factorio, and Tekkit Lite. These are our more intensive or difficult to maintain servers, which is why they have been running on personal hardware instead of VPS systems like our other servers. TF2 and DarkRP are both VPS hosted and will continue to operate.
Although the server is in a functioning state, it is degraded in various aspects. (Most due to old-age, since this was a used server we bought in 2014.) Since it's degraded, we don't want to run the risk of crashing the server entirely, as we don't have funds set aside to purchase a new system for these resource-intensive servers.
Robosane is proud to announce the start of UGC Highlander Season 17 with our first victory!
On Monday, September 28th, the Robosane UGC Team had their first match of the Season, and we were ready. We won the first half 4-0 then stopped the enemies from capping any points in the second half. Well done Team!
