What is open platforms?

Open source platforms (open platforms) are a new paradigm shift for government and industry. An open platform is essentially an enterprise-grade, cloud-agnostic hosting platform that’s completely built using open source components. More about open platforms

Salsa’s open source platform services

Salsa has teamed up with open platform experts amazee.ioExternal Link to enhance and deliver open platforms to our government and non-government clients. Specifically, amazee’s open source platform project (distribution) LagoonExternal Link is a platform built and optimised for Drupal and supports other open source CMSs based on the LAMP/LEMP stack such as Wordpress.

Together with, Salsa is at the forefront of delivering and managing enterprise-grade open source hosting platforms to government, following the recent delivery of a fully managed open source hosting platform based on Kubernetes, OpenShift and Lagoon, for Victoria’s Single Digital Presence program led by the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet, and the launch of the new GovCMS platform, also based on Lagoon. In addition Salsa is delivering the open source content management system based on Drupal 8.
