Fremont Upgrades

We are happy to announce plan upgrades are now available in Fremont, except not the Fremont you were expecting.  Over the next few weeks we will be transitioning all of our infrastructure from Hurricane Electric’s FMT1 facility to their FMT2 facility, which is just a few miles down the road.  FMT2 is a modern build-out, which we consider to be a great improvement over FMT1’s aging power and space restrictions.

We’ve networked both locations onto the same layer-2 LAN, so there is no need for IP swaps, no disruption in IP failover support, private networking will work as expected, etc. Essentially we have created one large LAN, despite hardware and Linodes existing in both facilities.

Henceforth, all new Linodes created in Fremont will land in the new facility. Performing the plan upgrade or resizing your Linode will transition you to the new facility. This is on a first-come first-served basis as we have limited availability in the facility until we physically move the remainder of hardware from FMT1.

For those with pending upgrades, you may log into the Linode Manager, view your Linode’s Dashboard, where you’ll have a new “Upgrade Available” box on the right-hand side. Taking the upgrade will simultaneously upgrade you AND migrate you to FMT2.

Those not already in FMT2 will be receiving tickets containing details of the maintenance window and the move to the new facility. Stay tuned!

    “We’ve networked both locations onto the same layer-2 LAN, Essentially we have created one large LAN,”

    i bet those interconnects are reliable. Otherwise you have just added another point of failure.

    After flawless migrations of all 9 of our linodes, and seeing about a 20 – 30% improvement, we have one question.

    While df indicates the additional disk space, it is not indicated on the dashboard and is not available for resizing an ext.

    Oops, I wasn’t aware that I have to click that ‘upgrade’ link in order to get actually upgraded…

    Now it says “Your position is 1 out of 1 queued migrations in this Linode’s datacenter.”, looks like I’m the last one 😉
