Internode embraces open source with SourceForge mirror

By on

Open source advocates will have something to smile about as Internode today launches a high-speed Australian mirror site to SourceForge.net, providing its customers with unmetered access to the the world’s largest Open Source software development website.

SourceForge.net provides free hosting to Open Source software development projects with a centralised resource for managing projects, issues, communications and code.

By opening a mirror to the development website, Internode has extended the available unmetered downloadable content for its customers to more than 32 terabytes (TB).

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.”

Other unmetered content that Internode provides its customers includes: Steam Content Server; OfTheWorldTV; Online Streaming Radio; and the Internode Games Network.
