    News Another HDD upgrade

    Hello MUGEN Archivists,

    Today, the HDDs needed to be expanded once again.
    I'm impressed, you always fill the HDDs much faster than expected.
    An incident happened though and we were offline longer than expected. Host API is buggy and remote hardware upgrades are always a bit risky. I apologize for this issue beyond my control. Whenever an incident happens, keep in mind you can get updates on our official twitter account.

    Now may be the time to donate if you can.
    Patronage and corporation patronage options are now available as well.
    Sponsors will be listed on the leaderboard. And if you know of corporations to sponsor us, please let them know about us. The benefit is a dedicated sponsor column on the front page.

    Patronage is a much better option to support the site in the long run.

    Men must become more then men, and gears must become more then gears.

    Peace.

    I believe that this is exactly where we are different than other sites.

    We have our own database. And it does not matter if the whole internet goes down. Our database will remain intact.

    So now I am on a sabatage mission because I think Cloud storage could be a nice idea?

    Nope, I just feel like MA could have more storage space with Cloud rather than HDD. I mean, if it were me, I would of used Cloud instead, and I wouldn't worry about if the Internet would go down because if the Internet goes down, how would people be able to download characters and stages in the first place? Just a thought. I'm fine if MA would rather use HDD. MA is not controlled by anyone but the admins, and I'm not the one spending any money for the servers. Heck, I don't even know much about storage spacing but I heard Cloud has some great and secure storage.


    You see, this is why I get a sick feeling to my stomach when I am near a MUGEN group or community, I have those feelings that people are gonna make me look like I'm out to get them or troll them ever since this one dude I was accused of being. Please don't do this stuff to me. I don't wanna deal with it on the Archive too.

    yes cloud storage would be best for something like this. community driven sites like this grow in size very fast and its hard to do the manual labor to keep it up and running(expanding disks, upgrading storage, etc). what cloud solutions are you looking at? i am an IT professional and would be more than happy to help/answer any questions.

    Fight on!

    Exactly this. Seeing this also makes me want to see Cloud storage even more than HDD. It's pretty much "Do you want a bunch of people rapidly uploading stages and characters and still have your storage up and running or do you want people uploading a bunch of stages and characters causing you to have to probably upgrade your storage every 3 days?"

    i guess it just relies on the database software the admins are using and if they can migrate to cloud. maybe admins can chime in?

    I thought megaman was talking about free cloud mf mega & co
    that's a definite nono everything would be wiped out over the night because too many downloads
    if you mean paid cloud I dunno I guess it depends how expensive it is I don't know much about these stuff

    well, first i would look at how much space you are currently using and then you can look at anything from MS OneDrive to AWS(Amazon Web Services) to even Google Drive.

    I have no info about those stuff, but I'm not sure it's viable. We have around 30,000 files right. Some are small, and some are really big (+80mb)
    We are talking about SOME terabytes of storage, with a constant flux of downloads.

    Files have been downloaded here more than 5 million times.

    I can't talk for our almighty owner, That Man, but I guess we are cool as we are right now.

    I don't see the problem in using Dropbox or SpiderOak , I use those two to upload some extra character's and stages that I don't want in my current Mugen game , and they take up as much space as you need , imo, Now 30,000 Files idk about that , but it's worth a try with Dropbox
