Software & Technologies
AO Industries uses and supports a variety of open source technologies in the hosting and development environment we provide. Open source software has many inherent benefits over normally licensed software. Open source software is cheaper than conventional software to use and to maintain. At the same time, it loses none of the reliability or functionality that conventional software possesses, often surpassing conventional software in both usability and effectiveness. For more information about open source software, you may visit the Open Source Initiative Homepage. A brief listing of some of the packages we employ appears below. For a searchable database of every supported software package, please see our Package List
