    For the past several months, ClubRunner has been undergoing a major infrastructure update.

    Technology gets outdated fast and in our promise to offer you best in breed technology, we’re making big improvements to the platform. Similar to a house renovation, we’re overhauling the foundation on which our platform operates, which will give us the support we need to strengthen the fundamental core of ClubRunner.

    What does that mean specifically? For a start, we’re moving all our servers onto the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and eliminating all locally managed data centre servers. This shift will ensure the stability, security and speed of our software. It also means that you no longer will experience prolonged downtime during our bi-weekly software updates!

    In addition to the server infrastructure changes, we’re also updating the actual application code from ASP.NET MVC to Microsoft’s brand new .NET CORE 3, a cross-platform framework that will bring numerous benefits to ClubRunner.

    Last but not least, we’re moving our databases from traditional SQL servers to Microsoft Azure’s SQL Services, which have built-in high availability, backups and Microsoft-managed patching and updating for ultimate security and stability.

    Why are we doing this? These updates are undoubtedly a large undertaking, but are crucial to putting us on the path of “future proofing” our software. Not to mention this shift gives us the advantage of being able to develop new features that will take membership management to the next level, making the possibilities endless!

    What you can expect soon? Instant and robust SSL website security (HTTPS) setup and maintenance, reduced downtime during regular maintenance, more frequent software update releases, a more robust and stable foundation, and more.

    But we’re just getting started! This major renovation, once completed, will put ClubRunner on a path to being able to deliver a more robust feature set to contribute to your club’s success. A lot goes on behind the scenes to turn that into a reality and we have more to share...soon!

    OK, for those of us that may be a bit overwhelmed, where do we go to start making these changes?

    Like Ken Richardson, I need a bit more help. Today, I received an e-mail indicating that I need to add a new DNS record but I need a more detailed step-by-step procedure of "what and where" I need to do this to keep our website working.

    Hi Richard,

    In the email, you got a set of DNS records that need to be added to your DNS servers. If you do not have access to manage your domain name and or DNS records, your first step is to identify who can make those changes and work with them to do so. If you are the person who can make those changes, but do not know how, your next step should be to contact your domain name registrar/DNS provider. Each registrar/DNS provider has unique instructions on how to carry out the required DNS changes.

    I hope this helps!
