During the past week we performed a significant upgrade of our data center in the US, to improve performance and scalability of the MyHeritage site for many years to come. We made a significant investment in this upgrade. During the process we physically moved and rearranged our servers, and added much new equipment. This required the site to be down in maintenance mode for about one day and was completed on schedule.
During the upgrade we had a few glitches. For a small number of our family sites, the migration to the new data center took longer and we apologize for the prolonged maintenance. Family Tree Builder access did not work for one day, which we fixed quickly to make the software accessible to all users all the time. Everything is working fine now and the new data center is rocking!
Our new data center will improve reliability and provide a better and faster service for all users.
