At dotsrc.org we just got our internet bandwidth doubled. Not because we needed the capacity, but we wanted the redundancy.
We now have two 10G uplinks. One to our ISP's (DeiC) router in Lyngby, and one to DeiC's router in Ørestad. Thanks to DeiC and AAU It Services for making this possible.
Due to some problems at our ISP (DeIC), all our services, except our IRC-server which is hosted elsewhere, was unfortunately offline about 1 hour from 2018-04-06 00:05:07 CEST until 2018-04-06 01:15:07.
The dotsrc servers are now backed by a 10Gbit Internet connection, and on top of this, the mirror server ( mirrors.dotsrc.org ) has been upgraded to a vastly better server, equipped with a 10Gbit network card. This big upgrade would not have been possible without our sponsors. Big thanks to: DKUUG - for a big cash sponsorship. DeIC - 10Gbit Internet connection. Aalborg University - Sponsored their old Google Search Appliance server, along with two Cisco 3750X switches + 10Gbit modules.
We now run a tile caching server for OpenStreetMap and are a part of their tile CDN. We are the primary server for tiles served to clients connecting from Denmark, so if OpenStreetMap feels 'snappier' (at least in Denmark) it is thanks to us. We also set up a tor middle relay. This is a non-exit relay, so it only receives encrypted traffic and passes it along to another relay.
providing free SSL certificates, our mirror service is now available using TLS at
We also updated our Usenet signup system, so if you have any problems signing up, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the recent hardware upgrade, we used all our 4TB drives, so we call for sponsors of additional hard drives in order to keep running our services as optimally as possible. Specifically we need SATA 3.5" hard drives 4TB (or more) and preferably designed for 24/7 usage (e.g. the Western Digital SE/RE/Gold 4TB drive). Sponsoring either as funding or as hardware will of course add you to our list of proud sponsors.
Due to a damaged fibre between dotsrc and the DeIC POP about 100m away all our services, except our IRC-server which is hosted elsewhere, was unfortunately offline from 2014-04-26T19:52 until today at 15:56. We apologize for any inconvenience.
