Age of Valor is hosted in a world class data center and is run by IT professionals. With proper IT knowledge you can rest assured we do backups, server maintenance, and everything to ensure peek performance and uptime even with a non profit budget. Our processes such as server updates are fully thought out and designed to ensure smooth and fast transitions to new content. Even our test server and development servers are fully backed up multiple times per day to ensure development is never delayed by any kind of data disaster.
If thats not enough, our programming practices are of high standard, aiming for organized and optimized code to ensure best performance. While we use RunUO, its core and scripts have been highly modified and recoded to meet our standards. This gives a final product much better then typical cookie cutter shards that simply use premade scripts and do not test them.
This is a brief outline of our code change management process:
As you can see we test things not once, but twice, before it even goes into production. This is how we ensure maximum server availability and a stable gaming environment.
