Good morning Peppermint Nation
The Peppermint Servers will be down for a scheduled maintenance from Tuesday February 28th – 3AM EST until Tuesday February 28th – 6AM EST. This three hour down time will allow our awesome official sponsor VPS.NET to do some planned maintenance as well as expand their SAN facility and cloud services where all things Peppermint are powered and delivered. This will effect the main site, all download servers and the Peppermint Community Forums and all will be unavailable during this short time period.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a few words about VPS.NET and express how grateful we are for their sponsorship of Peppermint. During the first week when Peppermint One was released the download traffic was so extreme that we were about to crash our server but VPS.NET came to our aid. They adopted us on the spot and had us migrated over to their Cloud with nearly any interruption and we’ve been there ever since.
Team Peppermint can’t say enough about the staff at VPS.NET & how friendly and efficient they are when you need assistance. They are clearly the most top-notch Web/Cloud host that we have ever been associated. Our little slice of their Cloud is rock solid and never gives up – we are super impressed. If you’ve never checked into VPS’s services you definitely should. They offer Cloud Servers, Cloud hosting, CDN and right now [for a limited time] CloudLinux is Free for 6 months when you Sign Up with VPS.NET
When its all said and done, VPS.NET is directly responsible for ensuring that Peppermint is delivered world wide to over 140 countries and territories and has served close to 10 million downloads without pause…. We couldn’t do this scale of project without their assistance and that’s the truth.
Have a great week and more news on Peppermint Three as we approach its release in the Spring / Early Summer
Kendall, Shane and Team Peppermint
