Since there is no S-Drive/Stream user manual, and not having the time to endlessly search the forums for answers I have some specific questions about what will work with S-Drive:
Does it work with:

CSS
HTML 5
Javascript
Jquery
Flash (outside of CoffeeCup programs)
MySQL
php

if so...at what levels?

and once DirectFTP is operational with the S-Drive, will I be able to put images, programs, etc. in specific folders on the S-Drive and have my website reference them directly. i.e., my VSD website link says go to sub-fold X and run XY.html?

Also, in light of recent weather hazards in the south, is my website going to be protected against tornadoes, etc. or is a good idea to still maintain a separate server to load onto if S-Drive goes
kerput?

Hi Mike,

Websites living on S-Drive are no different than on any other server in most regards. Your HTML pages (including HTML5), CSS, JavaScript (using any framework like jQuery, YUI, etc.), and Flash files regardless of which app you used to make them will all function normally.

One major difference is that you can't execute custom scripts (like using PHP, ASP, RoR, etc.). This is for a variety of reasons, security being number one.

As for the safety and integrity of the server infrastructure, we are housed in a SAS 70 Type II and CICA 5970 certified facility with regulated climate control in accordance with ASHRAE Guidelines, a 100% Power and Network Uptime guarantee, military-grade security, and it's staffed with engineers certified by Cisco, RedHat, MySQL, Microsoft, and others 24/7. It's the same facility used by local governments, and a good number of Fortune 100 companies.

Our cluster was designed with the help of high-level engineers from RedHat, MySQL, and Cisco, and is monitored constantly for errors and outages. A testament to this is that when our own website struggled with the load of people hunting for eggs, S-Drive hosted sites were up and running without a glitch.

All that said, we think your site will be just fine. :)

Well all that black-box stuff sounds impressive to us partial-geeks, but didn't exactly answer my question. So, let me try a plain English version. The levy broke and in 45-minutes CoffeeCup S-Drive HQ is going to be under 20-feet of muddy water. Now are the guts that make S-Drive and all our precious websites on it still going to run from a parallel location or locations - like somewhere else where it's dry like Switzerland or Arizona?

And, if you can't answer that one, can you at least tell me where to find the Golden Egg?

Mike,

Even if the levy breaks and Atlanta is under 20 feet of muddy water, or facility will still be high and dry. It's 90 feet in the air! That said, we're also working on a geographically agnostic cluster that would work regardless of location. Right now everything lives in Atlanta which, incedently, at 1050 ft is the 2nd highest major city in the US (behind Denver). So flooding probably won't be an issue here. :)

Dude I'm about 40 miles outside of Denver at 7500 feet elevation. In 1965 we had a big honkin flood that wiped a lot of stuff out, so don't get too cozy! Actually, here I'm more leery of tornadoes. So get that geographically agnostic cluster going...whatever that is.

Hey J - even though it's not as large as Hotlanta, you might want to check your geography info, at least one other "major" city in the US is at a higher altitude Albuquerque. Thus Atlanta is at least third on that top ten list... Sorry.

Now about that Golden Egg...

Yes, the air is pretty thin in Albuquerque. In the military, we ran there several times a week in preparation for an event in Arkansas and totally blew away the competition in the run. They were out of breath and we weren't the slightest bit winded since there was so much oxygen in the air.
CoffeeCup... Yeah, they are the best!

Heck, now that I've had all night to think about it... El Paso is at a higher elevation than ATL too... I think ELP sits at somewhere between 3,800 and 4,000 Ft MSL if I'm not mistaken.

So Atlanta moves a little further down the list J. :cool:

But at least it's higher than Death Valley :P
