How to find mirrors
You do not have to select a mirror yourself.
- If you use software.opensuse.org or download.opensuse.org, the server will take care of finding a mirror for you. It will automatically select one of the known and active mirrors from a database and redirect the download. See openSUSE:Build Service redirector for technical details on how this works.
- If you would like to use a different mirror, or want to see a complete list of all mirrors where you could download a file from, go to mirrors.opensuse.org.
- For any file on download.opensuse.org, you can click on link named Mirrors which will show mirrors assorted for your location. You can have a look at http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/openSUSE-stable/iso/ for example.
- If you miss a certain mirror, please tell us, by sending an email to admin @ opensuse.org.
- If you operate a mirror yourself, or plan to do so, the page Mirrors infrastructure might interest you.
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.
