After a long time of being involved with various communities & projects, we are very excited to announce the launch of Cloud68: your open source tech infrastructure service.
Our goal is to make it easier for individuals & SMEs to use services, to empower them have control over their data, instead of using services provided by tech giants only because that's a more comfortable choice.
Take a look and feedback is welcome ๐Ÿค— cloud68.co/
