At 31 march 2014, the main server of LxCenter went down. We discovered that Burstnet is moving their Datacenter with thousands of servers to another Datacenter. At april first, Burstnet announced that they where taken over by a company DigiPLUS. DigiPLUS is doing the work in the new Datacenter. The datacenter is moved from Scranton, PA to Charlotte, NC. The days passed and our main focus was on the WHT forum to follow the thread about information. Seems some servers are online and a lot not. In general a lot cutomers at Burstnet are down for over a week and they have no idea what happened to their equipment. As for us, LxCenter is hosted at one of the MercuryVPS.com servers and we have contact with him on IRC. Though he is also very pissed because Burstnet/DigiPLUS is keeping themselfs in the dark and does not even give out information to the public.
We decided to wait for some days but its now time to present ourself still to be alive.

Whats next? We dont know. We might go start from scratch building the main website, forum, bugtracker wiki's etc if nothing happens in the next week.


I redirected all main websites to one page so every request is visiting this page.

April 14 - UPDATE
* MercuryVPS server is left behind at Scranton PA.
April 24 - UPDATE
* MercuryVPS server is being shipped back to CEO.
* Still a lot problems at Burstnet/Digiplus.

Want to run a Download mirror?
Need just a VPS with CentOS 6 (32 or 64bit), minimal 50GB space. Running services are just sshd, apache, 5 minute cron for rsync. At this moment we are busy to get everything up and running again. After this we are starting to add the mirrors. The people that already offered to be a mirror, we shall contact you when we are ready for it.

HyperVM 2.1.0 Beta and "OpenVZ ploop layout"
There is a lot of interest from users that wants to install the Beta version because it supports CentOS 6. Please be aware that when using OpenVZ, the default container layout is set to "ploop" by OpenVZ. Do not! run/create containers with ploop block devices. Change after the Beta installation /etc/vz/vz.conf and use simfs as layout. Containers running as ploop, does have problems with backup and quota's within HyperVM Beta.
Note: Possible that this also affects at CentOS 5 with HyperVM 2.0 installs! Check your vz.conf right after installation!

Plan B: Looking for a Sponsor. Need a dedicated server, 64Bit, 8GB RAM, minimal 200Gb storage, Unlimited traffic, minimal 100Mbit up/down, minimal 6xIPv4, CentOS 6, europe or usa.
Plan B: Looking for backup storage. Minimal space 500GB. Can be just a FTP account somewhere or VPS or Dedicated server.
At the terms of "Life time" until project dies. Contact: via facebook or twitter.
