National ISP Internode has launched an Australian mirror of the SourceForge open source software repository and development portal.
SourceForge.net provides free hosting to open source software development projects with resources for managing projects, issues, communications and code.
Internode's 4.7 terabytes of SourceForge mirror is unmetered for Internode customers.
With SourceForge Internode claims a total amount of mirrored content on its servers of more than 32 terabytes.
Technical leader for content services at Internode Kingsley Foreman said unmetered access SourceForge data is a boon for the local open source community.
"We see this as an important enhancement for Australia's open source community by providing high-performance access to SourceForge that eclipses its previous local footprint," Foreman said.
"Increasingly, future software will come from the international collaboration that emerges from the open source community, so Internode is pleased to make it even easier for this to happen."
