Decoupling Turbo10 + Trexy

Meg and I made an important decision a couple of months ago to separate the Turbo10 and Trexy cluster. We wanted Trexy to have the best chance of growing without conflicting with the high growth on the Turbo10 cluster. It's hard enough managing the load pattern of just one search engine. Two separate clusters means we can tune each cluster to best serve its search engine. We are now receiving over 26 million hits per day on the Turbo10 network!

It was a tough decision to make at the time. But the last week has shown it was the right one. The variation in load on Turbo10 has not affected Trexy at all.

On Friday the legal arrangements will also come into effect. It's really exciting!
