Server facility being physically moved August 15th.

It wasn't something we were aware of ahead of time, but the game host company is moving all the equipment in their Dallas datacenter to a new facility today. They are saying its up to a 24-hour interruption. So it looks like EA117 is taking the day off. We'll await word from them for when the physical migration is complete.

Their reasons include "better connectivity with multiple 10Gbps pipes" and "better peering connections to other networks", both of which might have an impact on the Level3 and GTT lagging network hops we have been seeing recently. But we'll have to just wait and see.

Connectivity into the new datacenter appears to be active now, and it looks like they're no longer connected via GTT, at least for traffic coming from here in Dallas / Fort Worth. The old traceroute looked like:

And the new route this morning looks like:

12 7 ms 6 ms 6 ms 8.12.64.130

So we'll have to see whether being peered up to telia.net or any other peering changes they made makes any significant difference for players who had been having problematic routes.

Still waiting for the server move to be completed; the game server is not actually running yet.
