What is Xtreamlab?

XtreamLab provides managed traditional and cloud Internet services running on purely Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) to a range of organisations in the UK with particular emphasis on small to medium sized ethical businesses, community groups, co-operatives, and social projects.

We don't have a social contract per se, but we'll host you if we like you, and we reserve the right not to provide you with services if we don't feel we can, or we don't agree with what it is that you do. No offence, it's just the way it is.

In a previous incarnation, XtreamLab focussed on providing Internet streaming services and received funding from the (now defunct) South-West Regional Development Agency for two ground-breaking events, VENN 2007 and D.R.O.I.D. Prior to this XtreamLab was also involved in streaming for events in London, Bristol and Barcelona. This site is not directly linked to the old versions of XtreamLab, but some of our experience is drawn from them; if you're looking for streaming, we can still do it. Peruse the microsite for D.R.O.I.D: Reality isn't everything.
