a31modela Posted November 25, 2013 Report Share Posted November 25, 2013 Hello All, Noob to bittorrent and was hoping I could get some thoughts on something. We send software packages to a large number ( over 500 ) of wan locations ( suse 11 ) We are currently using a commercial multicast medium to get our packages to the wan locations. Multicast has been a pain in the butt. Looking for alternatives and thought bittorrent may be an option. We need a quick, reliable method of getting our packages to our wan locations. Some of the packages are over 600M in size and we usually trickle it @ 32k due to bandwidth constraints with other stuff going on. Would bittorrent be a viable option for us? We normally multicast from a single server here out to the wan to different groups. We would still need to use the group method of deployment since we send to a test group of 10, then 25, then 75 before we send to all. Could bittorrent do all this for us? We have a reliable package build method, I just need to get the package out to the wan locations. Appreciate your help ! Steve Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
