That is kind of you to offer, thanks! Garage is already mirrored by a  
Content Delivery Network which has servers all over the world, so  
there are already multiple redundant hosts. It is the services which  
are unique to garage which slow garage down and a mirror won't help  
directly because garage needs to access the data that lives on its  
disks, so we'd need some way to have a fast network connection between  
the hosts, otherwise you face a race condition. It is much better to  
mirror disks with RAID or something similar than to try to copy data  
over a slow IP network from country to country.

What is going to happen soon is the scaling out of services on garage  
to their own machines. This means that services will get the resources  
they need to be faster.

I am certain by the new year, garage will feel quick and fast.
