The Debian Project is pleased to announce a new security.debian.org
mirror with hardware and hosting provided by SAKURA Internet, Inc. The
new host is located in and serves content from Japan.

The hardware and hosting donation will allow the Debian Systems
Administration (DSA) team to improve Debian's core services by providing
a security mirror archive for Asia and is another step towards
decentralized and stable security mirror access for world.

"In combination with the GeoDNS feature used by Debian, the new mirror
should speed up downloads for our users in that geographical area
drastically. This is a welcome improvement in the worldwide coverage of
dedicated official security.debian.org mirrors, administrated by the
Debian project" said Martin Zobel-Helas, a member of the Debian System
Administrator team.

"SAKURA Internet is a leading Japanese hosting service provider which
hosts many servers running the Debian operating system. SAKURA is very
honored to have an opportunity to support Debian's security mirror
system and wishes to continue supporting the Debian community" says
Kunihiro Tanaka, Founder, CEO, and President of SAKURA Internet.
