eUKhost provides Linux Mint with a new server

Our main sponsor, eUKhost, now provides Linux Mint with an additional dedicated server.

The server is located in Milton Keynes, UK, and features the following specifications:

E3-1230 Quad Core Intel Xeon CPU (SAS)
2 x 300 GB SAS 15k rpm RAID 1
3000 GB bandwidth

This £189/month server is provided to Linux Mint for free as part of eUKhost’s sponsorship.

During the release of Linux Mint 12, the traffic on our website was so high we had to disable most of the modules from the community website. Everything is back online and the community website is now hosted on its own dedicated server.

I’d like to thank everyone for their patience during the downtime and of course our partner eUKhost for providing us with this new server.
