Why mirror TurnKey Linux?
Because you can! If you're the kind of elite network samurai that has the spare bandwidth and storage space to provide a TurnKey mirror in your country, you're hereby officially invited to join the TurnKey mirror network.
We're currently using SourceForge to host our releases which works fine for downloading individual images but not for collections of files as SourceForge doesn't support rsync or ftp. We suspect that might have something to do with maximizing revenue from advertising on the web download pages.
We want to make it as easy as possible for users in your country, especially private and public cloud/VPS administrators to batch download their own local copy of the entire virtual appliance library in whatever build type they want.
Besides, providing a local mirror of open source projects you like is a great way to show solidarity with the free software movement, meet new and exciting friends, impress the ladies and make your father, mother and us all very very proud!
What's in a TurnKey mirror?
Currently, about 600 GB of 100% open source goodness. This includes TurnKey appliance images in all supported build types along with cryptographic signatures for integrity verification.
Anticipated growth: The mirror contains 2 versions of the library: the current version and the last previous version. When a new version, the last previous version is deleted to prevent storage requirements from getting out of hand. The mirror may still grow as we add additional applications to the library though.
What's the best sync frequency and pull source?
Most mirrors sync 4 times daily (6 hours).
The following high-bandwidth sources are just 20 minutes behind the private SourceForge master:
