In our never ending quest to make Pro Clockers a better site, we have decided to upgrade our server with a larger CPU, we also doubled up on our SSD Storage as well as our current memory. Other changes include 4TB Transfer, 40Gbit Network In and 500Mbit Network Out. I was not happy with page loading times and I know some of you guys felt the same way so thanks for letting me know. Everything should be considerably faster once our upgraded server comes on line next month.
In other news, we also have a couple of new reviewers that joined our team Nick and Charles, so you will be seeing new reviews from both of them starting this month. We also have another new edition to our team, Neil Mathieson has joined Pro Clockers as an assistant editor !
Thanks Guys !May 15, 2015 at 11:49 am #85366

If you haven’t seen the notice on the homepage, the server upgrade will be happening tonight at around 2AM Eastern time. The server will be offline during the migration process, so don’t panic if the site is offline for that time.

ProClockers is back online with twice the server resources we had previously. Big thanks to Tony’s wife, Violaine everyone! She’s still at the helm of this ship. Let’s take it to the moon!
Thanks for your patience!

Hi guys, so what do you think about the sites speed now, especially the page loading times ? they should be down to 2 -3 seconds some pages now load within 1 second compared to the old server where some pages could take up to 10 seconds to load. Our goal is to get all pages to load within a second, so we will be doing some tweaks to get there.
ThanksMay 21, 2015 at 10:33 am #85395
Working much better!!May 21, 2015 at 10:34 am #85396
Pages loading much much faster now Stan. Thanks.
