Wikitech is the home of technical documentation of Wikimedia Foundation infrastructure and services. This includes production clusters, Wikimedia Cloud Services, Toolforge hosting, and the Beta Cluster.

To edit this wiki, you need a Wikimedia developer account. Wikitech does not use the Wikimedia Single Unified Login (SUL) (like on Wikipedia), and does not permit editing without an account.

An overview of the Wikimedia Cloud Services (WMCS) products and ecosystem.
Wikimedia Cloud Virtual Private Server (Cloud VPS) provides a cloud computing infrastructure powered by OpenStack for projects related to the Wikimedia movement.
Toolforge is a hosting environment for developers working on tools (bots, webservices, scheduled jobs) that help maintain and support Wikimedia wikis.
Wiki replicas and offerings for analysis, Tool building, and exploration. Both Cloud VPS and Toolforge can be used to access Data Services.
The main namespace of this wiki contains internal technical documentation from the SRE Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team for the Wikimedia Foundation. Documentation is available on most aspects of the technical operations of the production infrastructure as well as information on how to become involved in improving the underlying infrastructure of Wikimedia projects as a volunteer.
