Academic Computer Club (ACC), Umeå University, Sweden hereby announces the
intent to provide a mirror of Alpine Linux. has 20 Gbit
dedicated connectivity to SUNET, and enjoys excellent peering towards
Europe and US via NORDUnet.

Despite the name, the cluster is heavily optimized for http/https and
also provides rsync service.

We update hourly from rsync:// - let us know
if this should be changed (we heard that you are working on a tiered scheme
to offload the master server).

* Mirror name

* Mirror organization

Academic Computer Club, Umeå University

* Mirror location

Umeå, Sweden

* Mirror speed

20 Gbps

* Mirror administrator (email)

Mirror URLs:

*NOTE* that the cluster is highly optimized for http/https, so despite the
name we prefer to not publish clickable FTP links. Those really who really
needs to use FTP can usually figure it out from the site name!

*NOTE2* that the cluster uses redirects to offload requests for large files
to dedicated large-file offload targets. Mechanisms that check mirror
status must not treat this as an error.

For the admins,

 Niklas Edmundsson, Admin _at_ {acc,hpc2n}      |
