    I think you forgot the GPU...

    And that is about 10 TERABYTES(10 TRILLION bytes, remember that one byte(two bytes I forgot) is one letter) of storage!

    Minecraft servers don't usually need GPUs (unless its a very low end one for basic display output) because they don't run any graphics.
    Usually only servers that are running machine learning or AI algorithms need a dedicated GPU for their calculations.
    One byte is 8 bits, and i think unicode uses 16 bits for a character. ascii used to use 7..? i think

    Yeah. They're mainly used for more processing power, so you can also see them when people mine bitcoin.

    But what if the computer can’t process it? Then does it need a GPU?

    GPUs are good for specific workloads - to oversimplify a bit, they're good for when you need to do the same or almost the same thing over and over again. Minecraft server hosting doesn't work like that. The minecraft server application is pretty much always just used as a command line interface, meaning there's no graphics. The built in GUI is pretty useless. So, there's no need for a GPU in a dedicated minecraft server host.

    Just to confirm, if something goes wrong and the server ends up getting wiped in the upgrade... There are backups?

    Yes, there is always a backup. :)

    All the server data has been copied over to the new server successfully. The live map data is still being copied (it's huge!).

    The backup is taking a long time. We're almost done though! I want to make sure the backup completes successfully before we re-open in case anything catastrophic happens (unlikely, but better safe than sorry!).

    Thank you for all of your hard work. It means a lot and allows me to spend time with my friends when I otherwise can't see them.
