Open Source Software is at the core of Hossted’s vision, mission and operations.
Not only does open source constitute an integral part of the services we provide and market to our customer base, but it also plays a critical role in our behind-the-scenes product development and engineering, ensuring that what we take to market has undergone thorough quality assurance, and can receive optimum maintenance and support.
Hossted’s embrace of open source technology is not simply a result of choosing the best business model and mechanisms to achieve our goals. Open source is a personal passion of each member of our team, from our founders, to our developers, to our product managers, and to anyone who taps into our environment and philosophy.
Our company was founded with the objective of advancing the potential of open source technology, and our people have deep open source experience since its beginnings. Open source practically runs through their veins. They come from varied backgrounds, but they all share a common aspiration: to make open source software as ubiquitous as possible, highly and easily accessible and fluidly maintained.
Hossted is indebted to a myriad of open source projects and the communities and developers behind them. Software such as WordPress, Wiki.js, Gitlab, Ubuntu, Harbor, OKD and Graylog, amongst many others, are crucial to our operations, and we simply would not be Hossted without them.
We envision that our commitment to open source technology will only grow stronger as its popularity continues to explode, and we fulfill our role in empowering users with the tools to benefit from it.
