Add more servers dynamically

Postby romans01 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 11:26 am

It will be cool to have ability to add worker servers dynamically using modern cloud features.

It is odd to wait 5 hours till the next game if we have Amazon cloud on this planet and Google as a sponsor.

Absolutely agree, we definitely need much more servers.
Please look at this chart (move mouse over it to see values): .
The chart shows number of players in the queue in front of me.
It shows that from October 25th 9am to October 27th 9am, the queue size increased by 500 players.
And it also proves that delay between games is awefully huge.
(A flat line from October 26th 6pm till October 27th 8am is caused by the fact that the polling script was down and I didn't notice it)

I improve my bot each evening and when I come from work I can see my bot played only 3-5 games, all with low-level bots :(

Maybe we can add more servers by the community efforts? Donations and so?

It is starting to look like epic fail. I need to wait 24 hours for the next round.

Is it so hard to add more servers and to monitor them ?

Administration, do you need help?

The lack of games is really irritating. I am even willing to donate money that will go towards paying for more servers.

We are only limited by funds. Setting up more servers is easy, just expensive. I'll ask the other admins if there is a good way we can accept donations.

Just wondering: is Google actually sponsoring this?

Donations are a good idea. With so many members it wouldn't be too hard to scrape some money. If you can get this setup, could you give us a rough guide to how much money is needed to buy a server/hour.

Here's the EC2 instance we are running. Right now it is $0.168 per hour, $4.032 per day or $120.96 per month.
