Goo.im is at a turning point in it's life, as I'm at a turning point in mine. In approximately July of this year, I'll be moving out to Las Vegas with a family member due to some extenuating circumstances. As I'm sure some of you are aware, I am the head administrator of Goo.im, and responsible for all server-level maintainance and finances for the service.
So, what does this mean? Well, we were already planning on running a full hardware …
We have had a few ongoing problems the last week with our primary web server box. It appears that we have now resolved the issue (needed to purge 38,000,000 temp database records) and things should be more or less back to normal.
Sorry about the service interruption!
Things have been really stable around here lately, and we are saving money for massively upgrading our storage system to speed things up quite a bit. Lots of minor improvements have been made to the site code, and performance should be greatly improved.
RootzWiki is now under new management, and we have chosen to remove the "Forums" link from goo.im since it was rarely used for tech support and they are now going in an unknown direction.
GooManager is still being worked on, and some …
Us admins at Goo.im have been hard at work to bring some big improvements to our services. We have recently pushed an update to our distribution and storage servers which fixed a memory leak error in Oracle's lustrefs which we use for our centralized filesystem. Users can now enjoy massively improved stability and performance. In other news, we have added another gigabit uplink and moved over to fiber optic to improve speeds and utilize our extra storage server throughput -- now go download something!
New website …
We have had an extremely busy and stressful week getting everything moved over to the new hardware, but the dust has finally settled and you should all be able to enjoy some improved speed and stability going forward. Our fiber link won't be installed for another couple weeks so you can expect a massive improvement in bandwidth coming in soon as well! We are sorry for the amount of service interruptions recently but as we are limited on both time and funding, things don't always go exactly as planned.
GooManager v3 update:…
Here's a breakdown of everything that happened this weekend:
- New distribution servers: More redundancy and download bandwidth.
- New web server: Better uptime on the site and services.
- New file server: MOAR SPACE for hosting files.
- New switch: A new switch and fiber modules will let us upgrade from our current uplink to a fiber link which gives us the ability to upgrade all the way up to 10gbps before we have to get more hardware.
- The switch module that lets the fiber SFPs hook …
We have some exciting news coming soon in regards to both our hardware infrastructure and android app!
As you may have noticed, there have not been any updates to GooManager as of late. This is due to the code undergoing a complete overhaul which is bringing a more polished UI (with a tablet layout), improved features and additional options especially regarding twrp integration. Existing features have been much improved on and the general user experience should be quite a bit better. …
This coming week, 8/11-8/12, service will be interrupted due to hardware maintenance/upgrades/restructuring. Full details can be found at: http://tinyw.in/FUWy As always, we're still accepting donations to keep improving the services that we can provide to developers. Any donations past 10$, please feel free to e-mail email@example.com for donator account access!
As you may be noticing, we've knocked down the donation blog at this time, we're still happily accepting donations, as we're pretty far from the goal, but new news comes along.
As of today, we've purged all CM rom storage for roms over 240 (7 mo approx) old, which includes a great deal of old CM nightlies. This has freed up several hundred Gb of space for more active, and usable roms.
As you probably have noticed, goo.im has been getting larger at an alarming rate. A few months back we reached out to the community with a donation drive to get us migrated to our own hardware, and on a new network. While the goal was not met, a few generous donations from teams such as MIUI.us coupled with money from our own administrator's pockets we were able to still make the move.
Currently the hardware we have is not adequate for the number of concurrent connections we are running, and our buildbox is getting to the …
