Thanks to Catalyst and Rimu Hosting

The NZOSS would like to thank Catalyst IT for many years of website support and over two years of gratis website hosting (Catalyst IT continued managing and hosting this site after it acquired Egressive, who had hosted the site for many years prior). Catalyst provides excellent hosting services, including NZ's first OpenStack cloud service.

We have recently shifted hosting of the site to an NZOSS-managed virtual server generously sponsored by Rimu Hosting, who specialise in FOSS-based hosting infrastructure located onshore in NZ and overseas.

We are also trialling a number of new services on that infrastructure, including our own FOSS collaborative document editing platform (built on Etherpad-Lite) and a collaborative development repository for NZ-based FOSS projects, our own instance of GitLab.
