Synth.nl Website moved to a new Server

Last week I moved my website to a new server platform. I hope you didn't even notice it. My website was running on a very old Pentium machine running Debian Linux in the oldest datacenter of my work. Now I moved it to a very cool platform in our new datacenter. This platform is based on two SUN X4200 servers running VMware ESX. The data is stored on a NetApp based cluster that is separated over two datacenters. In this way I'm quite sure my data is safe and if some hardware fails it will be up and running very quickly again. I also installed a fresh Ubuntu Linux install on it so everything should be running as smoothly and safely as possible. If you encounter any problems, please let me know.
