Thanks to Jeff Story from Evo/Lution for donating $50 USD to support our cause!
Evo/Lution is a distro based on Arch Linux. Offered only with LiveCD, but equipped with AIS to make sure all packages to up-to-date.
And just now we have received a $5 USD donation.
Let’s keep them coming! 🙂
Thanks! We have received a donation of 5 USD on 15 July 🙂
(And we missed to announce a 0.005 BTC donation in March 2013 right?
LayerJet is operated by voluntary system admins but we need people like you to help us cover server rental costs and expand our network.
Or do you prefer donating part of your server to support our cause? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
We are delighted to become an official mirror of GoboLinux!
GoboLinux states itself as an alternative Linux distribution which redefines the entire filesystem hierarchy.
You can download it from our mirrors in DE & FR:
Another good news is that we have enabled rsync and FTP access to mirror3!
Mirror3 has been upgraded with more RAM and storage capacity. We are going to put more content into our mirror network!
Supporting VideoLAN’s initiatives to provide safe and confusion-free downloading experience, we have been an official VideoLAN mirror, serving downloads of VLC Media Player since 2014/04/30!
We have also started mirror Evolve OS today. Evolve OS aims at providing a modern, yet traditional, desktop experience which also tests new concepts and ideas. We are proud to become their first mirror, serving downloads of their Pre-Alpha release:
We believe it is our mission to help fostering the FOSS community. You can help us too! We need people like you to fund our server costs. We also welcome sponsoring of servers so that we can expand our network.
FTP and RSYNC access are now available on mirror2 & mirror6!
RSYNC access is also available on mirror5.
More to come in 2014! Stay tuned.
If you would like us to mirror any content, kindly let us know by dropping an email to email@example.com 🙂
LayerJet Solutions was initiated by Elton Chung, who was managing the server of a joint school organization, and thought that the server can be better utilized to support something good.
Given the large amount of bandwidth provided, he found that mirroring open source projects would be a good choice as they often require vast amount of bandwidth to deliver their software. He also saw that some projects were asking for donations, while it seemed they did not find the best bandwidth-cost ratio providers to deliver their software. So having a group of people who can sponsor server space, management time to provide software mirroring would be a great idea since open source software developers no longer need to worry about server over-loading right after software releases, and they can spend most of the donations on software development, instead of servers.
LayerJet is created to be a virtual and non-profit making group. Our aim is to foster FOSS development and incubate new FOSS projects by sponsoring mirrors for different Linux distro and open source software. We started serving our first byte of mirrored content on 2011/2/26, and we are now serving more than 25TB of content every month, which equals to 130,000 downloads of LibreOffice Linux installer, or 16,000 downloads of Hybryde ISO. Our mirror network consists of 4 servers located in Germany and the US.
Having a new FOSS software / Linux distro that would require some mirrors? Or having an under-utilized server and want to support a good cause? Contact us at info-AT-layerjet DOT com!
