Our Philosophy

Free and Open Source software is licensed to guarantee anybody rights to freely use, modify, and redistribute the software. If software is Free (as in Freedom) or Open Source, it facilitates choice. The choice to use the software, the choice to learn the software, and the choice to join, share, and participate in a community - a community full of enthusiastic partners that want to see the software grow and succeed.

Sirius emerged from the Free and Open Source software community. Our individual motivations come from different sources, both personal and professional, but ultimately we share the same goal: to deploy and support enterprise-class solutions based on the world's greatest software.

Our History

Sirius was founded in 1998 to bring organizations the high-performance low-cost benefits of Open Source software. An industry pioneer and expert in the field, Sirius is recognized by Government, the Technology Press and Conferences around Europe as the leading voice in Open Source solutions.

In 2001, Sirius became the first company to migrate a substantial business to an entirely Open Source infrastructure, subsequently repeated with companies like GE and Baker Hughes.

In 2005, Sirius became the first company to provide vendor-neutral support for the entire range of enterprise-class Open Source products.

In 2010, Sirius became advisors on Open Source policy to the UK Government in.

In January 2011, Sirius switched on its dedicated 24/7 customer service centre, and has since been providing uninterrupted monitoring, managed service and support to clients like SAP, the UK National Health Service, Baker Hughes, HID Global, RS Components and ABN AMRO.

In October 2012, Sirius was awarded its place on the UK Government G-Cloud program providing the full range of Open Source products and services through the Digital Marketplace.

In August 2019, SiriUS launched in the USA, bringing its unique Enterprise Open Source offerings to the American market.

Passionately dedicated to the intersection of customer service and advanced technology, Sirius provides clients with peace of mind through their 'stress-free technology' approach.
