Primary functions (downloading software packages from network repositories and their installation) may be performed in parallel.

Rally assumes the Fedora project as a reference platform.
Repo-proxy is a package repository proxy. When a package manager is configured to use repo-proxy, all package requests will be copied and stored in a local cache directory for future use. If you have more than one machine on a local network, they can all share the same package download cache, saving bandwidth and lengthy download times. Repo-proxy can be run using several different methods to accept requests from clients (package managers such as apt-get or smart) for Release and/or Package files.
