As anyone not living in North America probably already knows, ACDB is VERY SLOW when accessed outside North America. In some cases, it's not even useable.
Why is this? Our ISP/Host, fdcservers.com continues focus on North American bandwidth at the expense of international bandwidth. Thus, we have over 100Gbit's of US backbone access, and a mere 10Gbit of backbone to the rest of the world, which is oversold to some 100 1Gbit subscribers, and some 5000 100Mbit subscribers. Yes, that's right, that 10Gbit of international backbone is oversold by 590Gbit's. Nice, huh.
In short, I can't afford to change hosts or rent another server. Too many people are being affected today, and our site wont grow without your help mirroring our images!
Great! But first, there are a few requirements!
Over roughly the past 3 weeks our image server transfered
And our web server transfered
At any given moment, we're uploading at an average of
With bursts around
Pretty moddest, considering an unmetered 100Mbit server capable of 20TB per month. But anyways.
I imagine only a small number of people will uses mirrors in the beginning, and bandwidth requirements from you will not be so high. Perhaps not even 1%. Thus, even if you want to mirror from home using your DSL connection, that's OK!
Awesome, get on IRC (#acdb irc.rizon.net), get to know Jino and the rest of our staff, and we'll set you up with all you need.
