Technorati colo move

I just posted an update regarding the status of and our colo move.

The short answer is, we've moved 2/3 of the old colo, search and tags are working, but slow, and blog claiming and blog lookups are not happy.

Our priorities are:

  1. Stability and performance of the site.

  2. Making sure blog claiming works.

  3. Continued ping processing and indexing.

We will continue to move servers and network equipment over the next two weeks, but, at this point, we have enough capacity to run almost everything out of the new colo. Getting this far has been a ton of work for the ops team, late nights, long weekends, system pages at all hours of the day and night. I really appreciate their continued hard work and positive attitude. Ops and 7x24x365 duty is not for everyone. Throw a colo move of this magnitude into the mix and it is inspiring to hear them respond, "it's all part of the job".

Thanks guys, and thanks to the core engineering team and product team who continue to help out in any way they can.
