    Greetings all!

    For those of you that use BukkitDev regularly, you know that we recently migrated CurseForge and all associated sites to AWS. The Bukkit Forums are next on our list of sites we’re moving over to AWS and we will be starting on January 31st, 2018 at approximately 9:00am PST.

    We expect this process to be fairly quick, and have a downtime window of between 2 and 4 hours. As always we’re hoping to complete sooner rather than later, but we like to make sure we have plenty of time in case anything goes sideways.

    Post migration, we will have much better access to and control of the Bukkit Forums for day to day updates and changes. Over the next few weeks, we will be updating, fixing, and making changes to make using the forums easier and more intuitive.

    What is AWS?

    AWS, or Amazon Web Services, is a collection of services often referred to as “the cloud” that attempts to eliminate issues of scalability, cost, and reliability by pooling many resources together and interconnecting types of resources to provide redundancy and speed across multiple regions.

    Why move?

    Our servers are not new and they are not unlimited in power or space. The last year has been a little touch and go with different services showing their age, jobs failing, and a variety of other minor technical issues due to various restrictions we have had on our aging hardware.

    As always, if you have any questions or comments you can let us know below, or you can reach out to us on Twitter (@CurseForge)

    Thanks,
    Your friendly neighborhood MrFlamegoat
