Heya! Here Fabio from GlobaLeaks, i’ve a couple of questions.
In the current, going to finish, latest GlobaLeaks’s OTF grant we’ve implemented and released Multi-Tenant (multisite) support in GlobaLeaks along with some basic provisioning APIs exactly and specifically with the goal to foster diffusion of “Whistleblowing SAAS providers” as a way to increase adoption and narrow the deployment complexity and costs. That has been announced at IFF and there are many “demo” activated on the self-signup system https://try.globaleaks.org/#/signup .
We’ve too setup in 2016 a Social Limited Company (Whistleblowing Solutions Social Enterprise Ltd), owner by the Hermes Center, as a juridical vehicle to provide managed services to end-users, to aggregators and professional services to service providers too, with the statutory binding commitment to invest whatever earning into the long term vision of GlobaLeaks project.
Looking at the RFP i feel that what we may offer to do at service of Internet Freedom Community, with Whistleblowing Solution Social Enterprise Ltd, is:
On Objective 2: Support easier deployment of internet freedom technology
Provide Whistleblowing Software as Service directly (based on GlobaLeaks)
With existing infrastructure we would be happy to provide a Whistleblowing SAAS service to all communities at risks, providing few-click-activation services along with an advisory services.
That could be provided on a professionally run, DDOS protected infrastructure (integrating with existing providers providing those service to internet freedom community), that can be activated entirely trough a web-activation-process in a self-service manner.
We could work to enable self-learning trough Totem infrastructure as a way to provide serious scalability in terms of advisory and training, usually a key human resource impacted tasks.
On vertical area (such as community at risk in specific area/sectors) we could work on focus group and joint training session to make need-capturing with the goal to adjust the software (provided as a service) to better suit and service those group of users.
(nb: we need to provide the service that’s already configured and customised to be suitable for that specific community)
- Make and maintain ready-made images for deployments for easier self-managed infrastructure across the following:
- Google Compute Cloud
- Docker Cloud
- Digital Ocean One-Click-Apps
- Amazon EC2
That would enable direct self-hosting and self-deployment of the whistleblowing platform.
- Provide Whistleblowing SAAS Integration services to Service Providers
We want to enable the enabler, so we can service the provider that are already part of the internet freedom community to let them autonomously and easily provide WB SAAS services to their audience and communities (enabling the enablers).
Many providers already have management and provisioning platforms, such as WHMCS or others, that are used to manage users, services and billing.
We would love to help those providers to integrate those services, making the integration on the globaleaks side and on the “provisioning platform” side as a way to get the activation and deployment process straightforward and immediate.
Those are kind of technical services that as GlobaLeaks’s social enterprise we could provide to the direct and indirect benefit for the internet freedom community.
Do you this those would be a suitable path for the RFP Objective 2 and Objective 3?
