Thank you for you patience as we implemented a replicated, fault-tolerant database structure. Long overdue, this new structure allows:
- Increased performance on map refreshes
- Daily backups without downtime
- Data in a ‘hot copy’ format that will make it much faster to recover from a database failure.
[Update Mar 3, 2015] The database performance is not as good as we’d hoped. We’re working on improving it this week.
