Designed for IIIT-Delhi

There are two kinds of students at IIIT-D: residents and day-scholars. We're bringing them together by making it easy for people in both camps to download stuff from each other. Our replication algorithm helps students who aren't normally online at the same time to easily share files. If you're craving more speed, plug in an ethernet cable and watch your transfer speeds skyrocket!

Looking to set up a Bounce server for your own campus or institutional network? Go right ahead, we'd be happy to help.


@raghavsethi, @navedalam, and @mayankpundir hated having to walk around with a hard drive asking friends for the latest Ubuntu image, so they built Bounce to do it for them. @digvijay91 joined the project team in March 2013.

We'd like to thank Dr. Pushpendra Singh and the IIIT-D MUC group, who made this possible.
