Support and Consulting

OpenBSD has attracted a critical mass of developers, support organizations, and consultants such that it is now safe to commit to using OpenBSD in your projects. The following individuals and organizations have indicated that they are able to provide support as indicated. However, the OpenBSD Project does not necessarily endorse any of these. Please contact each site directly.

These entries are arranged geographically, so that you can find a consultant near you.

If you want to submit your own entry, the format is quite rigid; please use this template (do not just copy and paste plain text from your browser!). When you think it's ready, mail it to me, ian at openbsd.org, with a Subject: line containing at least the words "support update".
