Here is an update on our server upgrade process. We had stated that we had hoped to be nearing release by the end of this week. Many things changed that deadline and the release of the update to Microsoft’ Flight Simulator created a delay in our process.

To give a better understanding of our progress we are providing a list of the stages we are using internally:

Stage #1 – Purchase: Purchase of the data servers

Stage #2 – Build out: Installation of key software packages

Stage #3 – Transfer: Transfer of current data elements and services

Stage #4 – Mirror / Compare – mirror data and compare with our current servers

Stage #5 – Release - transfer domains and release to public

We are currently in stage #2 where we are building out the new servers to match what we currently have software wise. We should have Stage #2 completed by Friday of this week.

It is our hope to enter Stage #3 and #4 during next week. After we compare the data input to our current data structure, we will begin the process of Stage #5 – release.

We will keep everyone advised as we progress. Thank you for your patience in this important transition.

Sincerely,

REX Information Technology Team

We are very sorry about the short delay with the REX Weather Force compatibility update that was due out yesterday. We discovered a show-stopping bug that prevented its release. It has since been fixed and approved for distribution. 

BUILD: 6.0.2021.0216

REX WEATHER FORCE 2020 – TECHNICAL UPDATE 1.4.0


• FIXED – Compatibility with latest version of Microsoft’s Flight Simulator (1.13.16)
• FIXED – Weather injection with metar reporting precipitation, but no clouds

We are now in delivery phase to all of our vendors and we will make it available through the Weather Force application once ORBX confirms Weather Force is updated on their servers. You can download the update from where you originally purchased Weather Force. Please give each store time to update.

The REX Team.

Tonight our hosting firm will be performing regular maintenance on our server rack, therefore expect outages between 12 AM and 3 AM Eastern time or 9 PM and 12 AM Pacific time. All REX services will be affected by this temporary outage.

Also, we feel it’s important to discuss the past, present and future state of our software network and delivery.

Our servers play a critical role with our customers and daily operations. We’ve been with our current hosting firm for well over 10 years, but within the last year we’ve noticed their service has been degrading.

For the past 10 years we ran internal custom processes that download weather data from NOAA every hour. However on January 21st that process just stopped without warning. We decided at that time to use a temporary solution while we developed a more robust and efficient service. This past week we implemented our new metar data service, but with much dismay that data could not be imported from NOAA.

After a more thorough investigation we found there was a problem with our server hardware. Though this has been fixed, it appears that the issue still remains. Between the hours of 5 PM and 8 AM, we notice breaks in communication between our servers and NOAA. Therefore as a result of the present situation and past experience, we’ve decided to escalate the directive to move to a different hosting firm as well as purchase new servers.

Over the next few days we’ll begin purchasing new servers. Starting the week of February 15th we’ll begin to build out the servers and preparing them for operation. During the week of February 22nd, we’ll be running both the new and old servers concurrently to fine tune the operations. During the days of February 25th and 26th we’ll be moving our domain names and the switch will be complete. As our domains are being switched, all of our services will experience an outage at one point or another. It’s our hope this process will go smoothly and rapidly with very little problems.

Thank you for your patience as we solidify our internal infrastructure. In the end this will be a huge improvement and position REX for future expansion!

The REX Team.
