For the past months we’ve been busy building a new backend (servers and databases, that is) for Sports Tracker. As Sports Tracker has become more and more popular, our old servers just couldn’t handle the huge amount of users we have today. The new backend system will be taken into use today and tuned for optimal performance gradually during the upcoming weeks.
We will have a scheduled service break starting today, Tuesday 24th of September, at 11am CET/ 2am PT. The break is estimated to take 48 hours but we will keep you informed about the progress. We also expect to have a few short delays or service breaks during the upcoming weeks as we fine-tune the performance. It is also possible that momentarily the service will not show all your historical data, but don’t worry – all your workouts are safe.
What does then the new backend mean to you as a user? Basically it means the service will be more stable and faster. There are also many other technical improvements to the service. As many of you know, we’ve had to prioritize this work and many other projects have been postponed. Now that we’ll have the new backend in place, we can start the work on those projects. More news to follow!
Thanks for your patience and happy tracking!
