http://news.opensuse.org – I’m proud to announce that the download area of http://www.opensuse-education.org/ is sponsored now by 6 (!) mirrors. A big “thank you” to each of them: InterNetX GmbH (special thanks for the biggest bandwith ever!) Unixheads Peter Poeml (special thanks for the help with mirrorbrain) openSUSE (sponsoring two mirrors) Skynet Belnet Like openSUSE, the openSUSE-Education team use a great software named MirrorBrain from Peter Poeml, which makes it possible to redirect download requests transparently to the nearest mirror. As result, our endusers normally didn’t even noticed that they get their files from a mirror instead of the original system. Result: even if our current hoster still limits the bandwith of our main server, our users get their software faster than ever. (Distributions)
