Debian looking for sponsors
Debian is starting looking for new sponsors to create another 2 services: snapshots and archives.
The Debian project is hoping for an independent storage array that can be extended or upgraded without having to reconfigure the hardware of the server attached to it. A disk shelf based SATA SAN seems ideal for this application. We envision needing to start with roughly 10 TB of storage to cover known archives. 12 x 1 TB SATA drives seems like an ideal compromise between price and capacity.
They will deploy this 2 services in 2 separated and reduntant centers outside of US because their archives will contain non-us repository as well. If you can help them then just follow this link and get in contact with them
