(WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) — In its latest philanthropic effort, dedicated hosting provider Hivelocity (www.hivelocity.net) will be providing the world’s largest open-source software development and distribution environment, SourceForge (www.sourceforge.net), with mirror site services. According to the company’s Monday announcement, Hivelocity’s global network infrastructure will help support more than 180,000 projects and more than 1.9 million registered users.

SourceForge and its network of sites helps provide a central place for technology enthusiasts from around the world to connect, develop, and share open-source software. In late January, content delivery network provider CDNetworks (www.cdnetworks.com) began providing SourceForge.net with state-of-the-art mirror sites in the US and Asia, improving its speed and reliability at no charge to SourceForge.net as part of its support of the free development and exchange of software in the Open Source community.

Specializing in dedicated server hosting and unmetered bandwidth, Hivelocity has a wide global network reach, making it a naturally strong provider of mirror services, not unlike CDNetworks. Ideologically, Hivelocity is also supportive of open-source software, having provided mirrors to community-created enterprise operating system CentOS (www.centos.org).

Hivelocity’s mirror will give SourceForge users access to the Hivelocity network for uploading and downloading data for these development projects. “We are so happy to promote the free flow of thought and development along the Internet,” Hivelocity general manager Steve Eschweiler said in a statement. “SourceForge helps inspire and produce brilliant ideas and applications that improve the way people run their businesses and lives. What a great product to support.”
