Tonight marks a melancholy moment for me personally. Over a year ago, on April 6th, 2015 I made an investment into our future by adding our first Enterprise grade hardware server to our stack, and in that time not only has it been an incredibly valuable asset it has seen growth, traffic and most of all, love from our amazing community.
Here are a few fun stats I’ll share before we finally part ways, in case you are wondering this is one of our legacy boxes part of our larger plan to update our older infrastructure and re-organize with a focus on the two most important elements, the game server and the pack distribution and man has box.endermedia.com seen a lot of pack distribution. I attribute a huge amount of our sustainable growth to the sheer power of this box as a distribution hub for all our incredible content over the last year.
Just take a look at some of its sustained network usage over time:
It’s also hosted some incredible packs for our modpack author community, we’ve been fortunate to have such an incredible platform to work from so we try to give back and share when we can, a lot of authors have launched from box.endermdia.com including:
- The 1.7.10 Pack (Jon)
- Glixyl (A bunch of modpacks)
And of course our own content too!
- Simplify Minecraft (Where it all began between Amaxter and I)
- Steve’s Galaxy (Our take on a space adventure pack)
- Realm of Mianite (The critically acclaimed community pack for the largely popular series Realm of Mianite Season 2)
- Rexxit: Jurassic Pack (Our soiree into Jurassic World fandom)
And during that time we’ve accomplished a lot, Mianite just reached 2M runs, 300k downloads, and thats such an incredible milestone, but perhaps even more amazing is our Ender family total of 5.7 MILLION runs and 1.01 MILLION downloads, we’re humbled and honored to have reached such a huge milestone, and can’t wait for you to see what we have in store next. If you were curious box.endermedia.com has been replaced by web1.endermedia.com, and its what’s allowed us to deploy NEW FORUMS as well as a brand new HUB SITE, BAN PORTALS and quite honestly so, so much more. I’ve learned so much on this journey, and I can’t wait to see what is in store next for the refreshed new EnderPlay community and team.
