+Contact: Cluster Administration Team <>
+FreeBSD Cluster Administration Team members are responsible for managing the machines the Project relies on to synchronise its distributed work and communications.
+In this quarter, the team has worked on the following:
+* Regular support for user accounts.
+* Regular disk and parts support (and replacement) for all physical hosts and mirrors.
+* Enable mirroring of and in the FreeBSD project-managed mirrors.
+* Cluster refresh, upgrading all hosts and jails to the most recent versions of 14-CURRENT, 13-STABLE, and 12-STABLE.
+==== Work in progress
+* Large-scale network upgrade at our primary site.
+** New link:[Juniper] switches arrived at our primary site to replace the former ones.
+We thank Juniper for the donation.
+* Replace old servers in our primary site and a few mirrors.
+** Besides the broken CI servers, we have a few old servers with broken disks and faulty PSUs.
+This task is in conjunction with the FreeBSD Foundation and donors/sponsors.
+* Install new CI (Continuous Integration) machines repurposed from the package builders.
+* Review the backup configuration of the services running in the FreeBSD cluster.
+==== FreeBSD Official Mirrors Overview
+Current locations are Australia, Brazil, Germany, Japan (two full mirror sites), Malaysia, South Africa, Taiwan, United Kingdom (full mirror site), United States of America -- California, New Jersey (primary site), and Washington.
+The hardware and network connection have been generously provided by:
+*[Bytemark Hosting]
+* Cloud and SDN Laboratory at[BroadBand Tower, Inc]
+*[Department of Computer Science, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University]
+*[Internet Association of Australia]
+*[Internet Systems Consortium]
+*[KDDI Web Communications Inc]
+*[Malaysian Research & Education Network]
+*[365 Data Centers]
+The Frankfurt single server mirror is the primary Europe mirror in bandwidth and usage.
+We are still looking for an additional full mirror site (five servers) in Europe to replace old servers in the United Kingdom full mirror site.
+We see a good pattern in having single mirrors in Internet Exchange Points worldwide (Australia, Brazil, and South Africa); if you know or work for some of them that could sponsor a single mirror server, please get in touch.
+United States (West Coast) and Europe (anywhere) are preferable places.
+See link:[generic mirrored layout] for full mirror site specs and link:[tiny-mirror] for a single mirror site.
