If they have money issue, can just start with only 89USD montly with a true dedicated server.

I suspect that maybe big daddy Korg himself stepped in to lend a financial hand but I could be wrong about that. The Forum is still independent from what it looks like but there may be more going on "behind" the scenes than you and I know about. Either way, it's a great Korg resource, and definitely kudos to all the Korg staff personnel that submit official Korg input on the Forums. >> Something that at Roland Clan rarely, if ever, happens.

Best,
Mike

Dedicated servers (plural)? For a forum? So again I ask: what numbers are we talking here in terms of data-storage and bandwidth?

Hi Burkels.

It's not about space or bandwidth in the way you are thinking. It's about more CPU and RAM, plus the ability for high numbers of people to access the database all at the same time.

So think of it as connectivity that demands high CPU and RAM usage. The forums are rather technical and most of the time new members search through old posts than take part in new threads.

It's a huge database of answers to technical questions.

At the moment, we chopped 180,000 posts from the database just to reduce the load while we wait to restore them once we move to a dedicated Server.

Regards.
Sharp.

Hi Sharp,
have you considered a "Donate" icon via Pay Pal like we have here at Synthzone
(it's voluntry).
Hardly seems fair an individual should be burdoned with all the costs.
