Server upgrade complete (and some nice feedback)

Hello everyone,

As you may be aware, on Wednesday 23rd January we upgraded our servers and increased capacity in our data centre. We should now be able to expand the size of our network significantly (an estimated 50-100 times its current size) before we need to further increase capacity.

Everything went relatively smoothly during the upgrade, but there were some issues with one of our new switches which slowed our website and interrupted service for many people on the night of the 23rd. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused.

The Zenbu network was back online at full speed on Thursday 24th January and is now working better than ever.

Today we received an email from a customer who has traveled around New Zealand and has loved using the Zenbu wireless network to access the internet throughout his trip. Here is an excerpt:

"... We're off now until we get to the Law Courts Hotel in Dunedin, as they also advertise Zenbu, and confirm that it is working. As you may have guessed, Zenbu access is the main reason for shortlisting an accommodation as we tour NZ. Pity you don't have it in OZ, as we fly there from NZ on 27th Feb. Still, we can look forward to a few more days of painless internet..."

Thanks very much for the email and thanks everyone for the great feedback. It is very encouraging to know that our efforts are indeed being appreciated by so many people, both those providing wireless internet access and their customers using it.


The Zenbu Team
