As previously announced, we had to move our stats servers to a new hosting location due to changes at our old hosting provider. Logistically it was quickest and easiest for us to simply physically move the two servers to their new location in Houston, so we completed that move today. Zone file entries have been updated, so http://stats.distributed.net/ should now take you to the new location once any cached DNS entries have been propagated.
The downtime was a little longer than planned because of an unexpected routing failure that began at our old location earlier than our planned start of the move. We also waited until stats has fully processed all of its backlog before officially publicizing its new IP address at its new location.
Part of the transport occurred by private plane, and although the outbound flight was tracked on FlightAware, the return flight was unfortunately not publicly visible due to an air traffic control limitation.
No dnetc work submitted during the downtime was lost, and our stats pages should now fully reflect the last day of work.
