Using a VPS network to store your company data is a cost-effective decision. However, finding the right VPS applications can be tough. Many companies will explore a variety of options and then settle on a vendor. In today’s blog, we’ll take a look at three open source apps that you can use to cultivate the perfect custom VPS cloud solution using a Linux operating system.


The first open source app that we’ll look at is called iRedMail. The iRedMail app makes it easy to house your own email system completely on a private network. What sets iRedMail apart from other more traditional email systems is that it’s easy to install, manage, and deploy to your team. 


Another open source app to consider is Matomo. Matomo is your go-to stand-alone tool for monitoring analytical data. Having a stand-alone analytic system can be particularly helpful if you don’t want to invest in a larger group of applications like what Google offers. Small organizations will still be able to track key performance indicators including site-speed tests, geolocation reporting, goal tracking, and other important productivity data.


The third and final open source app that we want to discuss today is Nextcloud. Nextcloud is the ultimate option in open source office management. Some of the landmark features include quick file sharing and user friendly collaboration between your team members. These features are made more accessible through Nextcloud’s desktop and mobile friendly client versions.

Get Exactly What You Need and Want

Now that we’ve taken a look at three open source applications, it’s important to remember that you are building a VPS solution that meets all of your organization’s needs and some of the wants. While a lot of VPS vendors will provide software packages, the drawback to these solutions is that they may not provide everything that your company needs to thrive. Don’t be afraid to build your own VPS solution with these open source apps and more.
