As we’ve grown we’ve noticed an increase in CPU usage on some of our Canadian edge servers. We expected this and it’s part of the reason we choose to lease instead of purchase the edge nodes. During May/June all edge nodes in Canada will be upgraded to AMD Epyc 7351P – 16c/ 32t – 2.4GHz/ 2.9GHz machines with 256G RAM each.
UK servers will follow in June/July, neither Poland nor Australia at the moment are impacted.
We’re still working out the logistics and will try and make this upgrade seamless but a short outage may be required. We’ll keep you up to date.
