Bitstrips is down… again?!

My fellow Bitstrippers, you may have noticed in recent months the message Bitstrips is down. The message is displayed whenever our servers receive more requests than they can handle and unfortunately it has been happening more and more frequently. Thanks to our incredible growth over the last few months, we have outstripped our server’s ability to scale. What do you do when your server can’t scale? Move to the cloud!

Over the next few weekends we will be starting this transition process. Unfortunately some downtime will result. Currently we are planning for the site to be unavailable from 7pm Saturday February 27th to 7pm Sunday February 28th (EST). We apologize in advance for an disruption this will cause.

Thanks to everyone for their patience over the last few months, and during the transition.
