Thanks to the folks over at Scaleway, TalkingArch, its blog, its torrent tracker and its support e-mail are all now hosted on real ARM hardware in France. This server provides more disk space and processing power than the previous virtualized environment at a lower monthly cost. The transfer speed is also faster, and the connection is unmetered. RAM is the same as on the previous virtual server, although it is dedicated now, so won’t be slowed down by massive Mysql queries that other users on the same host machine may be running. We are looking into the possibility of migrating the git repository to this server as well, as our repository at NotABug has been refusing push requests since February. In spite of the difficulties, a release for the month of April is imminent, so keep checking this space for the April 2016 iso.
