|Long Description||The year is 1858. Thomas Glover is a restless young man with dreams of escaping Aberdeen. Abandoning his childhood sweetheart, he takes a posting as a trader in Japan. Within ten years he amasses a great fortune, learns the ways of the samurai and helps overthrow the Shogun - a rapid rise from lowly shipping clerk to millionaire industrialist. Yet behind Glover's astonishing success lies a man cut to the heart. His love affair with a courtesan - a woman who, unknown to him, would bear him the son for which he had always longed -- would form a tragedy so dramatic as to be immortalized in the story of Madame Butterfly.|

This weekend was a long one. We installed a new database server and copied all the data from the old server to the new one.
Then of course, we had to sync all the new data that collected on the old server while we were setting up the new server.
It was a time consuming process but we didn't have even one minute of down time over the weekend. The switch over was seamless.
The old server is becoming our backup server with instant data replication. This way, we no longer need to shut the site down for a couple hours each week to perform data backups. We can also run some of the more processor intense extract processes using the backup server instead of the live main server.
All these changes should mean more up time, faster response time and fewer issues long term.
