Be aware that shortly after a new version is released the older version is removed from the mirror. If you need a mirror of older versions for internal use I suggest still keeping your private mirror.

Simple.  Solid.  Superior.

My employer's executives attended the recent cPanel Conference, where they met some folks from the CentOS Project and were receptive to the suggestion that we host a public mirror. Most of the servers in our data center run CentOS.

How much disk space should I specify if we want to offer all versions and all architectures and even ISOs, for a conservative figure? Our private mirror holds only the repositories we regularly use, so I don't know how big the whole thing is. Depending on the size, I may have to pare down the offering.
