the server that is currently hosting Freesound is getting older and has realised that time has arrived to leave this job for younger and faster machines. For that reason tomorrow (thursday 25th of October) we’re migrating Freesound to our brand new servers! With that hardware upgrade we’ll be able to handle more requests and make Freesound faster.
Downtime will start around 11 AM (Spanish time, GMT+1). We are planning to be back before 5 PM. After the migration we will greatly appreciate if you notify us about anything you see that is not working well. Freesound has been constantly growing and has become quite a complex system with many many many little things to take into account!
That is all for the moment!
the Freesound team
