DigitalOcean is the much-loved cloud computing platform that has been a long-running supporter for our online infrastructure. With the backing by DigitalOcean for all of our 2018 hosting and infrastructure fees, and the commitment to continue this through to 2018-2019 fiscal year as well, Open Labs will be able to continue being always online, with no alarms and no surprises.
So lots and lots of <3 from our community to our friends at DigitalOcean.
We use the DigitalOcean services to host our websites (openlabs.cc, osc.al) where we share the news about the events we organize, our Nextcloud installation which helps keep our organizations documents shared in a secure way, our Discourse forum where we share ideas, suggestions and discus various topics related to free open source software culture, our wiki where we document everything related to our hackerspace, the Tirana geo-portal and other open source services that help us with our daily operations like the Open Labs Etherpad, and our Attendize installation so, it’s almost vital to the health of the Open Labs community to be able and operate this services on a stable environment.
Without this support it would have been very difficult for us to set up the infrastructure that makes it easy to share what we do and let others get involved.
We just want to show how extremely thankful we are for the consistent support to the Open Labs community and how great it is to work with companies that contribute in growing a healthy tech ecosystem.
