I know you're busy, but from my technically curious side when you get the time can you explain in some detail what the difference was? What was the old setup vs the new? Was it hardware, XServe vs something else? ISP? Logistics of where the servers with the data was located?
Loc: Westlake Village, CA
The end solution is that we moved the entire setup to Acquia. For a variety of reasons, this made things 2-2.5x faster. It took us a while to figure out what the issues/solution may be, but that's the long and short of it.
Am I understanding this right? Someone else is managing the hardware so that you don't have to manage it anymore or worry about hardware failures, ISP games, etc? You just need to get the content to their servers and they shoot it out of a big pipe? They can host the UBB for the forums too I take it?
