Everything went faster and better than expected during the move. If you notice any errors, please make a comment to this post.
We made the move to reduce the problems we’ve had when we get extreme traffic. When streetview images are added by Google to new regions traffic increases rapidly over the next few days. This new cloud hosting solution will be able to handle much more traffic and scale down when there is less traffic. The first test came within just an hour of the move when a popular german site mentioned streetviewfun.com. It handled the extra traffic very well.
In the past we’ve had to disable many features such as ratings while the traffic was heavy to this site. We hope to avoid downtime and turning off features with this server move.
