Definition 1: A mirror in computing is a direct copy of a data set.

Definition 2: On the Internet, a mirror site is an exact copy of another Internet site. Mirror sites are most commonly used to provide multiple sources of the same information in order to spread total server load and connection bandwidth. The mirror sites are short called mirrors. They are a way of providing fast and reliable access to the files on the sites with popular (and large) downloads.
