Many times I thought that APRS-IS net have a problem, the four core
servers are in USA (2 in Texas, California and Florida).
If any time it has a very big problem (geo/meteo disaster, terrorist
attack,...) and internet intercontinental links are damaged, APRS-IS net
will be unoperational. Tier 2 and other independent servers will be
individual isolated servers, without any interconection.
In my opinion, to prevent that the core server system must be
distributed in several continent and all continent must have 2 core
servers at least. In this case, if any time it happens something and
Internet intercontinental links are damaged, APRS-IS will continue
Here in Spain we can create an european core server (I think two
european cores servers are necessary...). What are minimum requirements
for a core server?
