SWITCHmirror – the fast route to an open-source program
Downloading software programs or updates can be a time-consuming and costly matter. SWITCHmirror offers all Internet users around 5 terabytes of bundled open-source software and information that is rapidly available.
Precise mirror image
From A for Apache to U for Ubuntu, SWITCHmirror provides a big selection of precise copies of popular software and software packages for downloading. These are synchronised several times a day in some cases and are thus always right up-to-date. We additionally include a brief description with the software packages to make for an easier overview.
Pro Open Source: pointing the way forward
The SourceForge platform, for which SWITCH operates a download server, is intended especially for developers of open-source programs. Here, they will find the latest open-source programs, an appropriate environment for administering their projects, plus a broad range of services. With the local download server, we ensure the improved availability of open-source software and strengthen the Swiss open-source community.
