In the next 1-3 days West County Media will be moving our Virtual Private Servers to our newest High Availability Clusters.

We have planned out the stages of this relocation which will occur during off hours 8PM - 6AM PST. This is a full manual migration of each container from their current cluster to another. As such, this move will cause downtime for each server when it is moved. The move will be performed in phases and downtime will be kept to an absolute minimum.

This move will NOT require any change of IP space. The typical relocation scenario for each server will include a graceful shutdown, cluster migration, and then server boot.

We will have personnel on staff to oversee the cluster migration.

Why move?

Our operations and engineering teams have made major improvements to our High Availability VPS platform, improving even more so on the stability of the platform. Because of these changes made, a full migration to the new platform is required.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions about this upgrade by email at or by phone at +1-707-921-5001 Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
