Probable cause of nFS rollout delay found.
- Here's a note that was posted on LDS Tech.
I was wrong. Lubbock IS delayed, but we are delayed
"until further notice." I learned on Friday (after I
posted the message above) that the problem is a server
issue. The Church had contracted with one company to
provide server space for all of the temples, and after
the company learned that because the temples are all
over the world it meant that the information would
have to be accessable 24 hours a day, they said they
couldn't provide that much space. Now they are trying
to contract with a second, possibly a third company to
provide the additional server space needed.
So what has happened is there was an issue acquiring
at least server bandwidth and probably storage as well
for the entire world, apparently the temples are going
to be using the net 24/7 once all the temples are
online as far as the temples go when they return data
to Salt Lake to be added to nFS.
There must not be that many service providers that can
handle 24/7 activity on such a large scale.
