"MirrorBrain is an open source framework to run a
content delivery network using mirror servers. It solves a
challenge that many popular open source projects face - a flood of
download requests, often magnitudes more than a single site could
practically handle. A central (and probably the most obvious) part
is a "download redirector" which automatically redirects requests
from web browsers or download programs to a mirror server near
"Choosing a suitable mirror for a users request is the key, and
MirrorBrain uses geolocation and global routing data to make a
sensible choice, and achieve load-balancing for the mirrors at the
same time. The used algorithm is both sophisticated and easy to
control and tune. In addition, MirrorBrain monitors mirrors, scans
them for files, generates mirror lists, and more."
