# 1 My suspicion - Server Switch?
02-01-2010, 02:23 PM
Hi all,

I have a sneaky suspicion that the CB/OB/HS was hosted on a testbed cluster and the retail launch will be switched over to the production cluster, complete with the shiney new (rushed order) servers to improve connectivity, capacity and reliability.

If this is true, it means that the HS people were used as the last guinea pigs to test some live code snippets.

Anyone else have the same/similar ideas?

Four days on the trot for me and no server availability during GMT/EU prime time. I hope they will pull a flanker tomorrow and surprise us all

I thought this as well as soon as they announced that they were going to be launching a testing shard. I believe we have all been running on the testing shard and the launch shard will be ready to go tomorrow. (we hope)

I'm sure they would be proudly bragging about their shiny new servers to handle launch day loads, instead of another server down announcement.
