A couple of things have been happening after the API server started to melt down. The first thing is that we have migrated the primary host to a Shard Hosting server. The guys at Shard were quite happy to provide us a box that is more that appropriately sized for our needs. The new server has been running happily, and most people haven't noticed any difference. That being said, we are now looking into whats needed to start scaling to multiple hosts to help prevent this issue in the future. The hosts have undergone some minor renaming to help differentiate them, and we have also been implementing a VPN back-end in order to facilitate replicating database changes between the hosts. Some code changes are needed in order to support the replicated back-end, however that should go live within the next week or so.
