We are moving our database to a bigger server to match Watu's growth. This database will not only be able to hold more information, it will also be faster and easier to maintain, which will reduce downtime in the future.

At the same time, we are tightening our security even more. It's impossible to have the perfect secure system and new security issues are found every day. The way to minimize risk is to have a lot of walls a potential attacker has to break before they can cause some harm. We had a few in place, but we are adding two more.

This is also the first step into the process of revamping our architecture to be faster, more secure and have less downtime.
