Hello,

After the patches on the shared hosting filers

this has allowed the reactivation of hard quota on filers but especially the development of SSD cache in the ZFS and options such as "dedupe" (the same data as the block (!!) file is not stored as a single physical, therefore less space actually used, but above all a performance gain)

and patches on email filers:

for the same reasons

Tonight we update 80% of SQL Servers in OVH for the shard hosting.

More information:

This is a major facelift before the latest SQL Server with the failover system from Linux to Solaris. Why? MySQL is better optimized for Solaris and so quicker (normal, it's the same company that offers both: Sun Microsystems). Coupled with the local memcache, mysql-proxy and ZFS, we'll offer you the performance but also the security with backup accesible in SQL directly, and much more now thanks to the power of ZFS, SSD and Dedupe.

In parallel, we work on an SQL service without limit of space, number of request/sec and using claud, but this is another matter.... I'm drifting away...

All the best,
Octave
