Dear Fedora Mirror Admin's,
I would like to have a public mirror for my most lovable
operating system Fedora .
Below Find the Necessary details about my site :-
Ip Address : 22.214.171.124
Country : United States
Region : UTAH
City : OREM

Longitude : -111.699
Outbound Bandwidth : 1000Mbps
Url Name : w2itprojects.com
Thanks & Regards,
Amarnath, thank you for your offer.
I have some concerns however. It appears you are a relatively new
company (domain registered in the last 2 months), and are using
colocation space in Utah while your company's primary members are in
Mumbai, Pune, and Bangalore.
As running a mirror in the US really requires some hands-on
capability, 1-2TB of disk space, and sufficient network bandwidth,
I believe it is rare for anyone to offer such while using shared
hosting or colocation, without the involvement of the hosting company
directly. On major relesae days, Fedora mirrrors have a tendency to
consume all available bandwidth, which can bring unwanted problems for
data centers unaware of the coming spike.
If I misunderstand, please advise.
