Why Open-Source?

You may be asking yourself why build on open-source software?


That answer is simple.  Where many companies invest heavily in expensive software products, as a small firm we made the decision to invest the R&D time into making open-source products work as well as costly commercially available products without the exorbitant per-user license costs.  


If you care about data sovereignty, open-source is the way to go.  You can see the entire code, to make sure that there are no terms that include selling your data.  Stack peering connectivity with our DACS-IX, and never advertise your data to the world wide web.

We decided not long ago to offer our experience and expertise to many of these network management and business continuity products and help other firms with enterprise needs without enterprise budgets.  

We are official partners of:
