Business Reason

We have been continuously experiencing issues with the Vanadium DirectAdmin server ( due to an issue with the storage limitations and an issue with the DirectAdmin licensing verification. We decided to perform an urgent server migration to address these issues because the workarounds we applied did not address the issues. The new server has been configured with NVMe SSDs to provide additional storage and more IOPS than the existing server. We freshly provisioned this server with the latest DirectAdmin installation to overcome the licensing issues that we have been experiencing.The new server comes with below specifications;

  • Intel Xeon D1540 - 8 cores/16 threads - 2.6 GHz
  • 32GB DDR4 ECC Memory
  • Pure NVMe SSD RAID1 Protected Disks
  • Protection against DDoS attacks
  • 1Gbps Uplink
