"With the FTP Mirror Tracker service, locating the nearest complete up-to-date mirror site will take just one click on the browser button."

"Usage of the FTP Mirror Tracker software on the ISP and content provider sides will significantly reduce download time while ensuring the freshness and completeness of the archives. You will never ever need to use the search engines to locate nearby mirror server with the copy of the files you need."

"FTP Mirror Tracker enables transparent, user controlled redirection to the nearest ftp mirror sites that are exact replicas of the original source. The redirection can be achieved by using cache server or by making HTTP request to FTP Mirror Tracker directly via Mirror Tracker on Demand."
