"The Internet2 Distributed Storage Infrastructure project has begun hosting Linux distributions.

"I2-DSI is a project developed by members of LoCI Lab (loci.cs.utk.edu) at the University of Tennessee. The I2-DSI is an open content delivery network that allows anyone to become an active node and host existing content or publish new content. The nodes maintained by the project are co-located at institutions that are members of the Internet2 consortium and provide excellent performance for content delivery.

"Participants that publish their content on I2-DSI receive the immediate benefit of content redundancy and transparent resolution services.

"I2-DSI has recently added Mandrake and Redhat Linux distributions to its Linux channel (linux.dsi.internet2.edu). Other popular distributions and updates will continue to be added as the infrastructure continues to grow.

"More information about the project and downloadable tools are available at dsi.internet2.edu. Information about the infrastructure is available at dsistats.dsi.internet2.edu.
