About Us

The Rockstor Project, an open source community endeavour, is fostered by 2 discrete but co-operating entities:

Rockstor, Inc. (US) owned by project founder Suman Chakravartula:- Domain and trademarks owner/admin.

Philip Paul Guyton:- Current maintainer, project lead, packager, distributor, and subscription shop owner/admin.

Our website uses the “rockstor” domain, while support uses the “linuxlines” domain. We hope to further rationalise these ‘mixed’ domains as we work towards sustainable Open Source development.

Our Endeavour

To develop, maintain, and distribute an easy to use, flexible, Linux & BTRFS based DIY software appliance solution.

Open source and community focused. We develop on GitHub in collaboration with our users,

our community, and anyone who wants to help.

Docker based Rock-on Extensibility. Easy to roll your own and then contribute it back to the community.

Simplicity & Usability. Simple clear and intuitive user interface for what most folks do, most of the time.

DIY Personal storage. Provides ‘private cloud’ storage to all your networked devices.

Privacy, security, and freedom.

Simple Storage done Sustainably.
