Dear Colleagues

Universities often has the required ICT infrastructure and skills to install open source software. If you however do not have the necessary expertise and server space, and if the ICT policy at your institution allows, an option is to host all in the cloud. See the following:

Hetzner self-managed servers: https://hetzner.co.za/dedicated-servers/ (they do the server setup, and your system admin can then install the software)
Hetzner managed servers: https://hetzner.co.za/managed-servers/

Host any open source software in the cloud, e.g. DSpace, OJS, Moodle, and more. If you know of other trusted cloud service providers, please share anytime. If you cannot afford the above on your own, maybe partner with others and share the expense.

Kind regards
