The current DB server is badly overload. The 3x frontend API servers are 
limited back as not to overload the current DB server.

The upgraded DB server is estimated will last us at least a year using 
our current growth pattern. At that stage we could then upgrade the 
hardware further or redeploy the server elsewhere in the project.
