Ubuntu MATE website is now load-balanced across multiple geographies


Twice this week ubuntu-mate.org has experienced DDoS attack. Last night I completed the new server infrastructure so that ubuntu-mate.org is load balanced across 5 servers. We also have more DDoS mitigation measures in place.

I’ve also used this as an opportunity to add Torrent downloads for the Raspberry Pi 2 images which have 5 web-seeds.

I would have rather spent my time developing new features for Ubuntu MATE. But hey, the downloads much faster now :slight_smile:


Why on earth would anyone attack this site Martin?


I don’t know why , but I can imagine who : the martians , the communists , the atheists , Clem with a jealous attack , …
These people .
