Quick Note: Server maintenance for Figgi Riggi
You know, I love figs for their sweetness ever since my childhood when my granddaddy in South Alabama would grow fig trees in his back yard. I always thought figs would only grow in that subtropical environment. Until only about 20 years ago, I discovered that they grow right here in the Northeast at USDA Zone 7a. It’s all fun and exciting until bouts of maintenance occur… either with maintaining fig trees or Figgi Riggi.
Usually, I come to my blog site on a regular basis. Sometimes I use it as a source of reference as it’s like a place where all my notes are stored so to speak. Yesterday was my birthday, April 25th and as an unfortunate gift from my server company at Certified Hosting Solutions (not really a gift since it was planned in advance) they decided to run a maintenance upgrade on their server cooling system. They said it wouldn’t disrupt service, but it had. I wasn’t able to open Figgi Riggi at all for at least 5 hours and I began to feel concerned since it dropped my flow of traffic. I went to bed and when I woke up, FIggi Riggi was back up and running again.
Most hosting services conduct maintenance on a regular basis and sometimes it can disrupt service and other times it doesn’t. The best way to avoid this and will be my future goal is to add figgirigg.com to the cloud, this way I will never be affected by this problem. What is cloud computing or cloud hosting? Here is a quote from interoute.com
Cloud hosting services provide hosting on virtual servers which pull their computing resource from extensive underlying networks of physical web servers.
Figgi Riggi is back and you can return to the site. The server company apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused. The next time this happens I’ll be sure to inform everyone in advance. Thanks for your patience.
