OpenInfra projects have access to a wide range of services that are geared towards fostering a healthy, sustainable, successful open source project. The processes and tools we use, developed through years of experimentation and proven by open source success, can be scaled based on your project’s long-term aspirations.

- Thierry Carrez, General ManagerOpenInfra Foundation

Not a “One Size Fits All” Approach

After gauging the unique needs of your project and the resources available from the organizations involved, The OpenInfra Foundation will work with you to develop a combination of services that will produce the most effective results. While we will do our best to guide you through the process, your governing body will also have the ability to customize service packages as they see fit.
