Internode peers into future with SourceForge mirror
SourceForge.net provides free hosting to Open Source software development projects with a centralised resource for managing projects, issues, communications and code.
Internode's SourceForge mirror, which is unmetered for Internode customers, brings the total amount of mirrored content on its servers to more than 32 terabytes (TB).
Internode provides Australians with high-speed access to its mirrored content - which reflects data held on popular servers in the US - by maintaining deep peering relationships with major companies, both in Australia and overseas.
Technical Leader Content Services for Internode's Content Services Group, Kingsley Foreman, said unmetered access to the 4.7 terabytes of SourceForge data was a boon for the Open Source community. "We see this as an important enhancement for Australia's Open Source community by providing high performance access to SourceForge that eclipses its previous local footprint," he said.
"Increasingly, future software will come from the international collaboration that emerges from the Open Source community, so Internode is pleased to make it even easier for this to happen."

- Steam Content Server: Internode is the only ISP that offers free traffic to all Australian steam content servers, which provide automated and convenient software/patch updating services for a variety of current online games.
