Moving on up… to that de-luxe [storage array] in the sky


You’d think 1.9 terrabytes of disk storage would be enough for Mozilla’s builds, but… it’s not.
In fact, with all the simultaneous releases going on lately, we’ve had to spend a lot of time babysitting the chronically under-spaced stage.m.o.
Fortunately, we now have a replacement and a plan to get us using it.
In addition to giving us another terrabyte of storage, we’ll be able to reclaim some diskspace on the current arrays, and provide better verification of builds going out to the mirror farm.
The plan is to migrate stage.m.o and ftp.m.o to differet machines this Thursday. The downtime will start at 6 pm PDT and end at midnight.
Details of the plans can be found on the Wiki, including changes for contributors posting builds (they should be minimal).
If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to email with them.
