ISC, Iron Systems, eXchange@200 Paul, XFree86, NetBSD, and OpenBSD come together to enhance user experience
Redwood City, CA -- Internet Systems Consortium, Inc. (ISC) welcomes additional support for Hosted@ISC, a programme providing high availability services for popular Open Source software applications and projects. XFree86, NetBSD and OpenBSD are the latest participant to join the programme. Iron Systems is partnering with ISC to provide computer systems to these Programme participants. Exchange@200 Paul is providing ISC with collocation space for Hosted@ISC customers.
"NetBSD is pleased to be participant of Hosted@ISC. Through this programme, ISC has enabled us centralize our server base simplifying ongoing operations," stated Christos Zoulas, president of The NetBSD Foundation.
Hosted@ISC is a no-charge service for its customers. Programme components offered vary from mirror site services, duplicate sites that offer geographic diversity, to full hosted services that include hardware, bandwidth and operations support. All Hosted@ISC customers are providers of open source applications or protocols. Long time participants include such projects as Kernel.org, OpenLDAP, FreeBSD, Mozilla and OpenDarwin.
"ISC has provided hosting to XFree86 from our earliest days allowing us to focus on the project itself and not on our infrastructure", commented David Dawes, president and Co-founder of XFree86. "We view this support as a critical factor in our success."
Peter Losher, Hosted@ISC programme manager stated, "This programme represents a significant commitment to providing a stable, secure and high speed infrastructure for other Open Source projects. Old and new participants will benefit from ISC's long history of Open Source Software distribution." Iron Systems generously provided new hardware to Hosted@ISC participants XFree86, NetBSD, Open BSD and NTP at no charge. Billy Bath, CEO of Iron Systems, Inc., added, "Through an organized effort with Hosted@ISC, we are able to extend needed infrastructure quickly and efficiently. The systems we provide are necessary building blocks that help developers support the ever increasing need for more resources and reliability."
"As a volunteer project we're always in need of hardware. OpenBSD welcomes the additional processing capability that this machine will make available for development and testing activities," said Ian Darwin of the OpenBSD project.
Hosted@ISC services are offered from ISC collocation space at eXchange@200 Paul, which is donated to us. "We are pleased to be able to give back to the Internet community through our support of ISC and the Hosted@ISC Programme", remarked Bill Wilde, vice president and CTO at eXchange @ 200 Paul.
