Novus Redux currently runs on a dual 3.06Ghz Xeon (hexcore) with 128G of ram. It can effortlessly support up to about 300 players on its own but things start to look a little worrisome around that mark. Splitting the resource management across multiple boxes should enable us to run with up to 1000 players, so that's our plan.
In the past 2 days, we have grown at a rate of +120 average players a day and we are approaching the limits of our hardware. In order to keep the server open in a way where anyone can join when they want... we must upgrade!
Thank you for your consideration,
