The Debian Project, provider of one of the earliest OS distributions in Linux’s history, has chosen LeaseWeb Netherlands, part of global hosting brand LeaseWeb, to deploy and host their globally available Debian OS Snapshot Archive with 80 Terabyte (TB) of capacity and ample room to grow.

The Debian OS Snapshot Archive, available at http://snapshot.debian.org, allows access to old software packages accepted into Debian since the operating system's first release over twenty years ago. The snapshot archive provides developers with access to an immense amount of historical information regarding Debian packages, enabling software development including debugging and patching.

The Debian snapshot archive is growing year-on-year, currently expanding at a rate of more than 5 TB per year. As a result, The Debian Project needed a hosting partner that could support its worldwide infrastructure needs.

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) and the Debian project today announced cooperation to expand and enhance h-node [1], a database to help users learn and share information about computers that work with free software operating systems.

1: http://h-node.org

While other databases list hardware that is technically compatible with GNU/Linux, h-node lists hardware as compatible only if it does not require any proprietary software or firmware. Information about hardware that flunks this test is also included, so users know what to avoid. The database lists individual components, like wifi and video cards, as well as complete notebook systems.
