Primarily to support Hackweek, but also to gain experience for a potential future corporate use, I like to run the open source Jitsi in a SUSE context and within a setup that is close to what SUSE IT is doing.
The service will be built in AWS/EKS within the SUSE E&I space and should be up and running on day 1, but will need love during the 5 Hackweek days to
- serve other projects such as Workadventu.re at SUSE
- fully integrate into SUSE's Rocket.chat and allow audio/video chats and conferences from there
- be available as general purpose conferencing solution for lightning talks and such
The team meets in the channel #hackweek-jitsi. It's internally public, feel free to join.
Deployment related configs can be found in the internal GitLab
Everyone using the service should be aware it's a Hackweek project and not supported by IT but a group of volunteers. It is subject to be shut down after Hackweek.
Goals: gain experience and prepare technical details on how to run Jitsi in a SUSE IT compliant environment, to finally approach SUSE IT along with a business case to establish Jitsi as a open source and user friendly conference system alternative to MS Teams.
