Discourse Enterprise Managed Hosting & Services
Literate Computing Managed Discourse Hosting Services
Literate Computing provides professional installation, configuration, maintenance, hosting, and management of Discourse on your preferred infrastructure. Your DevOps team is already busy, so I manage Discourse and support to your community management staff.
Save Your IT Staff Time
Discourse requires management with Docker and Postgres, which is often unfamiliar to highly skilled system administrators familiar with PHP, MySQL, and cPanel. Consequently, it often makes sense to hire someone to handle Discourse to save them time of learning a new suite of tools.
Discourse Where You Need It
I recommend Discourse.org when their offerings align with your needs; their world-wide team is second to none. However, if your organization's needs require you to run Discourse on an infrastructure and hosting that you control, their services are not a match for you. I manage your Discourse server where you need it, so you maintain complete control.
Custom Plugins are No Problem
If you need for plugins that are not developed or supported by the Discourse Team, I provide a staging server so that upgrades can be tested before upgrading your production server. I am an active member of the meta.discourse.org community, so I keep track of new features as they are added and how they affect popular 3rd party plugins. When incompatibilities arise, I can provide helpful bug reports directly to the developers, many of whom I have known and worked with for years.
Because I come to Discourse from the perspective of a system administrator (and former professor of Instructional Technology), when clients seek a solution to a need, my solutions start with native Discourse features, so that stability and ease of upgrades are maintained. If you need deep customizations, I am in touch with a network of developers to get new functionality when you require it.
