Tool Labs (or Tools) is a hosting environment for community developers working on tools and bots that help users maintain and use Wikimedia wikis. Tool Labs provides access to replicas of Wikimedia databases and other services that allow developers to easily compute analytics, do bot work, and create tools to help editors and other volunteers in their work. The infrastructure is supported by a dedicated group of Wikimedia Foundation staff and volunteers.
Wikimedia Labs (or Labs) provides a cloud computing infrastructure powered by OpenStack for projects related to the Wikimedia movement. Much of the configuration for Labs projects is managed using OpenStackManager provided special pages on this wiki. The environment also provides auxiliary services, such as shared NFS storage, and access to live replica databases of Wikimedia Foundation wikis.
The production part of this wiki, also known as Wikitech, contains internal technical documentation for the Wikimedia Foundation.
