Is it worth continuing?

2008-08-11 @ 08:56 in Eritreritra mandalo

After what happened last week when I lost a server, I really didn't sleep the following night thinking if I should continue offering services to people keeping their data etc.

Almost all services offered by serasera are linked with people. Before, I used to keep data in some free stores like free.fr where I know they will be well kept. Member's photos and some files were stored for months without any problem. But later, when there were many things to store because of the growing number of users, and to make a more optimized data load, I had to move them inside serasera and then the need of a dedicated server.

To have a dedicated server is the best thing to do, but it is time consuming, more expensive and needs more skills. Of course one dedicated server is even not enough to make a redundant disk access (with RAID, for example). I do have, just for serasera, three dedicated servers but some sites consume too much resources, so I cannot put all of them in the same server and make the others just like copy servers. All three servers are full servers and datas are backed-up in different places. The problem is that backups can be corrupted or lost.That's what unfortunately happened last week.. and it is frustrating. So what to do? Is it worth continuing?

If I should continue then:

- I need more structure (a complete RAID server to keep servers synchrounous among them or many backup systems), then I need more investment... how much and from where? 

- I need more time. Having 1 hour a day in the evening when I am already tired is not enough. I think I should use more of my free time to manage the server. This can be done if I drop all my other secondary works.

- I need more support

Momba an' ilay hoe "I need more support"

When you created serasera, it was a good job indeed. We all appreciate your dedicated efforts.
This time, I wish I could provide you with some technical help, but my knowledge of IT systems is pretty shallow.
Still, it might be good for all of us if you could let others become aware of what kind of assistance you might need.
Izay mitambatra, hono, vato. Afaka miray hina isika raha toa misy ilana an'izany.

You even write it in english!You know what we say? That malagasy men speak (or write) english when drunk. But I don't think it's your case. ;)

What happens is really too bad, we all know that you do things your best and professionally, and it's always worth it...
How come with 23 000 members, could anyone be efficient enough to build an admin team?

Never lose faith and don't take any decision when frustrated. Believe me, I mean what I say!

maybe it's time you start thinking about listing serasera on euronext :)

seriously, internet submarine connectivity is coming next year, 2010 is likely to be the internet booming year for Dago, u really want to make the smart move right now. Be the small "GooGle" in that small island, ie get to be the leader and control most of the market share... Although, serasera would certainly have to get more commercial activities on its direction, if it raises money through shares... but that's just an idea :P

Also, u can found the Hery corp. :)
the one and only one creating the website you need ;-)
yes man, you should get paid for the services you provide... well, it's nice to get their gratitude and all of that but it's way better if you can make some cash out of it, I know, right!
U can't be good friends if u don't deal with money properly ... plus, that can help you to prioritize your work. Less money means low priority, simple as that ;-)

Ohatra ny mampatsiahy ahy ny fitenin'ny mamanay hoe "rehefa voky ianao dia sambatra aho".

Tsy lavina fa tena mandreraka tokoa ny manome fahafaham-po ny olona. Mendrim-piderana mihitsy ny vitan'i Hery hatramin'izay.

Raha ny hevitro angamba dia mba asiana tanjona ilay izy. Azavaiko kely.

Raha ny fahazoako azy, ahitsio aho raha diso, ny tanjon'ny serasera dia hampifanerasera ny malagasy amin'ny teny gasy, na amin'ny internet io na mivantana.

Tsara. Fa ny indro kely dia hoe: hifanerasera anefa dia haninona?
Betsaka ny valiny: mahazo namana, mihomehimehy, ... fa ny tena mivaingana dia tsy dia misy. Lasa mivalona any fotsiny avy eo.

Ka ny tanjona tiako tenenina mety hahasoa an'i Hery dia hoe: trandraho (amin'ny fomba mihaja (ankolaka)) ilay fifaneraseran'ny mpikambana.

Ohatra: mody asaivo mifaninana ny mpikambana hanoratra ny hoe "ahoana ny eritreritra momba ny mety anjara biriky azon'ny serasera atao manohatra ny fihafanan'ny bolatany". Teny latsaky 250 ihany no azo ampiasaina sns... Tsy voatery ho vola ny loka, fa na zavatra zefany kely aza dia mety. Ohatra hoe: ny voaloha dia lasa "semi-admin" mandritra ny erinandro, ny faharoa mahazo bizoroka 20 ... hihihi

Mino aho fa ahazoan'i Hery hevitra be dia be io. Tsy haiko na efa henon'i Hery ny atao hoe mangalatra hevitra fa fika fataon'ny vazaha io. Jereo ange ireny fifaninana manoratra essay be dia be ireny eh. Ny hevitra tsara indrindra avy amin'ireo ankizy mahay indrindra, lasany daholo. Dia avy eo dia mahita atao foana leretsy ny vazaha.

Zay fa lava loatra
:wink:
