This was our April Fools joke, please stop messaging me about it! Good morning all, as some of you late night owls might have noticed we have a little bit of downtime this morning. This was due to us switching over to the new network. Since I have joined CCG myself, Rubik and Halo have been working on a new way of hosting Minecraft and from today CCG is now using it. Rather than the traditional power hungry server software, Rubik has developed a new version (based on Bukkit) that allows for distributed processing over multiple cores and multiple machines. This means that as demand grows we can now just add more machines that increase the capacity of the network. So what are we using, well for their size and power consumption we have chosen the Raspberry Pi. 3 Weeks ago we took delivery of 4,000 Raspberry Pis. This means that the network has capacity for around 4,500 people and we are going to be adding around 500 per week for the next 5 months. Funilly enough the main issue is that The Raspberry Pi Foundation (the people who make the Raspberry Pi) just can't keep up with our demand! So what does this mean for you? Well our network is significantly more DDoS proofed as we're now on thousands of servers it will also mean less lagg and other issues as each player has pertty much their own CPU core and their own RAM. We hope you like the new system and look forward to hearing your comments.
