Wikitech is the home of documentation related to the technical projects and infrastructure maintained by the Wikimedia Foundation. This includes production systems, the Wikimedia Cloud Services computing infrastructure (virtual private server (VPS)), the Toolforge hosting environment (platform as a service (PaaS)), and many other technical projects such as the Beta cluster which is used to validate new software before deployment to the production cluster.

This wiki is not a Wikimedia Unified Login (SUL) wiki, therefore editors must create a new account.
