Hi Emmanuel, I can only speak about the processes within WMCH which are know to me or where I am part of. So far these processes mainly use self-hosted IT ressources. On our four server instances we run a variety of services: * mail (SMTP/IMAP) * webserver / content management systems / wikis * shell / file access (ssh / sftp) * videoconferencing * groupware / calendars / address books / ActiveSync * file server / webDAV storage * backup server The servers for this are technically and physically under full control of WMCH (me as a member and contractor of WMCH) and located in a datacentre in Germany which I am paying for space, access control, power, a/c and bandwidth. Exceptions are the office and backup servers which are virtual hosts located on a physical server in our Lausanne office.
External services regularly used are: * phone / SIP lines via Swisscom * internet connectivity via Swisscom * mobile phones via Orange and Swisscom Other external services we don't use as infrastructure: * sometimes we use the WMF Etherpad for drafting text documents * social networks - G+, Facebook, Twitter for publishing news * some users of WMCH mail addresses redirect their mail to external services not under our control There might be processes which I am not aware of which make use of external platforms. /Manuel Am 10.06.2013 11:42, schrieb Emmanuel Engelhart: > The last PRISM scandal show us again how the american governement and > web companies don't care about our private data: > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_%28surveillance_program%29 > > On the other side, our members deserve a total privacy regarding their data. > > So, my question is pretty simple and for Manuel, who is certainly the > only one with the right overview: Which precise usage does the > association internally do of (American) cloud solutions (Facebook, > Twitter, Google, Dropbox, Skype...)? > > Setting-up a precise list of services with use cases would be IMO > extremely useful to evaluate our current dependance. -- Wikimedia CH - Verein zur Förderung Freien Wissens Lausanne, +41 (21) 34066-22 - www.wikimedia.ch _______________________________________________ http://wikimedia.ch Wikimedia CH website Wikimediach-l mailing list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediach-l
