Cloud PyPI - Mirroring PyPI in the cloud
Update: This project is now canceled, since PyPI is being on hosted on a fastly CDN and the PyPI server itself is hosted on a VM at OSL/OSU.
We are setting up a PyPI mirror of the static content of PyPI in Amazon CloudFront.
The proposal was accepted by the PSF in their December 2010 board meeting.
Funding was limited to an initial USD 500 for Amazon costs to see whether the project would succeed.
PyPI RPC interface (which we likely won't use, but gives an idea of how the meta data is stored)
We've setup an example CDN which only provides caching services to the PyPI server and uses the pypi.python.org server as origin:
For more details on the used setup, please see CloudPyPI/ExampleCDN
Helping with the PyPI code:
