Create a local Fedora mirror system and get blazing-fast updates

"One of the things that I like most about Fedora, is how simple it makes managing infrastructure. While many Linux distributions have multiple mirrors, if you run a lot of instances of that distribution, it's nice to have a local mirror. For primary mirrors, a lot of vendors have some "magic goo" to make things work for them, but if you're an end user wanting to mirror the bits locally, and use them, you're often left to your own devices.

"Fedora makes it easy to run a public mirror, and a local private one, and gives you the means to do so easily, without clumsy reconfiguration of all your local systems. Using the Fedora Mirror Manager, you can set up a private mirror easily and have it transparently, and without any reconfiguration necessary, be seen and used by local Fedora systems."
