XCP Download Bandwidth Proposal

By February 11, 2010March 4th, 2019Announcements

The Xen Cloud Platform has been available for download since last November and is becoming a very successful release for In fact, we are seeing substantial network traffic for this solution as we had 26 TB of data from XCP downloads in the past 4 weeks. Of course, this amount of traffic is forcing a re-examination of our co-location agreements as we are moving toward the limit of our monthly bandwidth and face substantial increases in costs as XCP continues to find new users.
I have a proposal to move the XCP iso images to bittorrent for downloads, thereby reducing the bandwidth pressure on the website. I am looking for community feedback on this proposal and look forward to your thoughts.
