Let me share some numbers for the openSUSE 11.0 release. Do you remember the 10.3 release? Again we used akamai for distribution of the images. Again for 30 hours, and yes, we made more than 100TB this time!

Total data transfered: 163 TB!!!

That’s without considering any other mirrors, just images downloaded directly from

Some more details:

62% openSUSE-11.0-DVD-i386.iso 28% openSUSE-11.0-DVD-x86_64.iso 3,7% openSUSE-11.0-KDE4-LiveCD-i386.iso 2,0% openSUSE-11.0-GNOME-LiveCD-i386.iso 1,2% openSUSE-11.0-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64.iso 1,1% openSUSE-11.0-Addon-Lang-i386.iso below 1%: openSUSE-11.0-DVD-ppc.iso openSUSE-11.0-GNOME-LiveCD-x86_64.iso openSUSE-11.0-Addon-Lang-x86_64.iso openSUSE-11.0-Addon-Lang-ppc.iso

So what are the changes compared to the last release?

  • more people downloaded the 64bit DVD (+4%)

  • 63% more downloads in the first 30 hours

  • approx. 65.000 registered installations so far, for 10.3 we had 40.000 after 6 days

For the next release we should break the 200TB mark :-)
