Free software at the heart of the creation of Opensides

Opensides was created in 2001 with the idea of promoting Free Software as a full solution for enterprise computing, at a time when the Free Software was not as widespread. Our credo: “Regaining control of its computer.” The qualities of free software, its efficiency, durability also make simpler and more efficient and robust than proprietary software.

We made our first big step in this direction in 2004:  OpenSides becomes the open source provider of the data center of the Brussels Capital Region (CIRB).

Opensides is primarily a European company. We get our first contracts in France, starting in 2006 with EDF R&D.  In 2007, we started the implementation and monitoring tools deployed on the cluster test at EDF R & D.

Besides our main activities, we also try to be  socially active by financing associations that help the promotion of free software, but also digital freedoms, the press or even local actions (eg Restaurant du Coeur).
