Hello all, Some of you may know that we had a 2 hour of downtime at the end of the last month. It had caused us to rethink the single server situation. As you some of you are expecting reliable uptime from BeeIMG.
As some of you know this month our system was not much stable and suffered some big down times. To fix the issues, we did a big system upgrade on 20th that lasted over 3 hours. (upgrade log) During the system upgrade we moved from apache2 to nginx. After several days of tweaking we got the site stable and moved the image serving back end to v2! It works faster now and should handle 3x requests than before. After moving the image serving back end to v2 we decided the upgrade the thumbnails serving back end. Now you can get 4 sizes of thumbnails. The sizes are below. XS - 50x50 SM - 100x100 MD - 300x300 LG - 500x500 All thumbnails will be served as JPG but if the browser supports it will be served as WEBP images. The site upgrade also added some more bugs to the site, we are working to fix them, some of them are already fixed. Thanks for reading.

According to GA we had 249,529 page views and 136,212 visits in 2014 and most users are from USA. 2013 Dec 2014 Dec Increase Images 3,000 11,000 +8,000 Image views 25 million 65 million +40 million Bandwidth 6 TB 12 TB +6 TB Looking back at 2014: we added Twitter and Facebook log in, new profile page, a dashboard to view all the image data in one place and we upgraded our systems to handle more views and added more thumbnail sizes. In the coming year we would like to add more image sizes in images as current thumbs are only for the use of the site. Also we would like to add
