Proxy cacher for apt on Enough infrastructure


I will find useful to have an apt proxy cacher on Enough infrastructure to speed up installation of packages on Debian hosts. Software I have in mind is Apt-Cacher NG

In the past, I used a DebOps role to install and configure it.

I wonder if that would actually help. If running on a small VM the bandwidth is capped at 100Mb/s and if ansible is running apt-get update from 10 hosts with the same capped bandwidth, it may slower than the nearest mirror. Or am I missing something ?

I got your point @loic. I agree with you, I need to adapt my habits to a cloud environment.
