Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers -------------------- Start of message text -------------------- fwiw, I've just submitted this: http://lists.evolt.org/marketingarchive/2002-June/000167.html under the title "Finding mirrors for a browser archive?" Cheers Martin Subject: RE: Distributed bandwidth (was RE: [Theforum] Re: [Content] Mail Alert! - Sat Jun 22 31226) John said: > > Bluntly, I'm not seeing the point of this discussion. Ken said: > The point is that ~90% of our bandwidth bill is b.e.o. > 90% of 140Gb.mo is no small matter, and it's very - VERY - expensive. > > We have two options: > 1) cut down the bandwidth > 2) host a bake sale Beau says: I think that John understands that we need to get rid of the beo bandwidth. He just wants to do it all at once with big mirrors instead of little bits and pieces here and there. Massive mirrors would probably be the best way out of the problem -- they would most likely be faster and more reliable than member volunteers. Jeff's solution is something that we could implement, and that would probably work. *If* we can come up with enough major mirrors (like, in the next few days), it'd save us the trouble of developing and testing a beo bandwidth donation app. So who will mirror our 4.1 gigs of old browsers? What about educational institutions? (Any institution with a web development program might be interested in helping us out, and with the affiliation to evolt.org.) --------------------- End of message text -------------------- This e-mail is sent by the above named in their individual, non-business capacity and is not on behalf of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
