Mirror sites are servers in different locations with identical or "mirrored" content. As bandwidth on the Internet can vary wildly between computers on different providers, countries or continents, mirroring allows the viewer to select the server that at any given moment provides the best connection. And if a certain server is currently unavailable, other mirror servers are still there.
MSRI's first mirror site is at the University of Missouri - Columbia, here in the US. The Mathematics Department at MU has been working with MSRI's Computing Department to develop, test and finally implement the mirroring mechanisms.
Our Middle East mirror is in Israel at Bar-Ilan University and is funded by the Emmy Noether Mathematical Institute.
The Korean site is now available, hosted by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) in Taejon.
We now have a mirror site at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany.
