Ten years of FOSS hosting at the OSU Open Source Lab

ramereth's picture

For the past ten years the Oregon State University Open Source Lab (OSUOSL) has provided hosting for 150 open source projects from around the world. Some of the projects we provide hosting include the Linux Foundation, Drupal, Python Software Foundation, Apache Software Foundation and Freenode. This session will cover a historical background of the past ten years, an overview of the types of projects we host, what types of hosting we provide, what tools we use and how we provide the hosting. I will also cover the impact of our student workforce who provide most of the work to power the lab.

Our environment is very heterogeneous with limited resources which creates interesting challenges. I will highlight some major accomplishments we've had and future ideas we’re planning on implementing. Our audience should be people interested in what's going on at the OSUOSL lately and how we provide hosting for all the projects. They should have a medium level of expertise in linux system administration.
