Live Server Maintenance

Hey there,

One thing i wondered today, i have seen major games/websites require server maintenance from time to time, and i wondered to myself, why doesn’t IF’s live server also require maintenance? Maybe IF has it’s own way to do this without taking down the server for a while? Just by curiosity, if anyone could answer this it’d be awesome :)

Hey!
We can prepare everything we need to do on a staging server and then replace the production server with the staging instance. This makes it almost seamless in terms of connectivity for the users.

That’s a smart way of doing it! Now i wonder why other companies don’t use this method 🤔

No wonder IF turns offline for only a minute before going back online!

If it’s down for several users for more than a couple of minutes, there’s generally some sort of issue :)
