  • Automation


    Kangaroot has developed a number of "rootstacks" these are open source, automated environments that deliver you a Platform of integrated open source components , ready to be used by a developer, application owner, etc ... You can find our code on

    These stacks will offer you a cloud-provider independent software stack, that can be run anywhere - with the ease of use normally found in public cloud services. And they can also be deployed on your own hardware, in your own datacenter. Additionally, a managed service model of these rootstacks will be available soon on

  • Managed Services

    Managed Services

    Many of today's open source technologies have become very complex to operate and maintain, which sometimes is a reason not to invest in knowing the ins and outs of the technology underneath, and focus on using it and getting the value for the user or organisation immediately.

    That's why more and more customers choose our managed services model, where Kangaroot installs, runs, maintains and updates your open source components, so you can focus on using it. This can be either on on-premise infrastructure or on public cloud resources.

    We do this for most of the partner technologies and for a fixed price per month.

  • Automation Factory

    Automation Factory

    Build > The automation factory is a set of advisory intakes, workshops, employee trainings, best practices and ongoing code assistance and coaching for your team with only one goal. Automate your server, cloud, network and security infrastructure. All based on Ansible technology.

    With good engineers always in short supply, automation will be a key enabler to keep your business running and growing without growing your technical teams. Additionally, the team you have will able to work on more valuable and non-repeating tasks.

    Convert > for organisations that have already invested in other automation technologies, the Convert Factory helps you keep (and update) the logic that was already in place, but translate it to easier-to-read Ansible playbooks, allowing more teammembers to work with and on these automation tools.

How we work

Information technology is critical, your business cannot operate without it. At Kangaroot, we ask the right questions so we can develop a technical solution based on your long-term business requirements. We are passionate about open source technology, but we are realistic. If a solution to your problem requires proprietary software, we will use that too. 

  • Local people for continuity

    Our experts are local people who have been helping businesses with open source software since 2000. They are always just a phone call away. There are no language barriers, cultural barriers or different time zones. The expert helping you today will be the same person who is helping you next month.

  • Tailor-made solutions

    We solve technical business problems on a case-by-case basis. We can use all the technology open source has to offer to improve your business agility, performance and cost reduction. If necessary, we use proprietary software too: we're passionate about open source, but we're also realistic and flexible.

  • Fixed fee & avoid vendor lock-in

    With open source software, you improve your operational efficiency and lower your total cost of ownership. Additionally, you avoid vendor lock-in. We are confident in our skills, so we can offer you a solution for a fixed fee.
