We are run by real human beings who care and love open source.

-- About Us --

The project is managed and coordinated by our founding owner, and a group of highly talented volunteers. We provide and offer a range of professional hosting services to assist projects. We believe in sharing our infrastructure and making both our service and support accessible and available to all eligible and active projects.

We do not host server farms in cupboards under stairs or garages. Our open source infrastructure is housed in professional data centers, globally and is maintained by our volunteers and hosting supporters who kindly donate infrastructure to the project.

The project has an appetite to indirectly assist other projects who offer hosting services by sharing our infrastructure, resources and automation technology.

Those open source projects eligible for our services, typically apply for a virtual private server (VPS) with the the following minimum specification, however these can be increased, on request.

6 vCPU
8GB Memory
400GB Storage
IPv4 / IPv6 connectivity
Full Remote SSH Access

We support most operating systems including CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, ArchLinux, Fedora and FreeBSD. We even have a bring-your-own-operating-system option available on request.

Other services we provide to the community include database clustering, audio and video conferencing, storage and dedicated instances.
