Servers and Web Resources

VHS Operates many servers inside our space and rents a few Virtual Servers for external operations.

Virtual Servers

We currently rent some virtual servers from GreenQloud, an Icelandic VPS provider. (100% Renewable energy, wooo!)

* - used for projects that need to be up all the time * - mail server and mailing lists machine


VHS API is a simple HTTP interface to store values from various sensors. VHS API has a notion of a “Hackspace” which may have various “Datapoints”. Each “Datapoint” has a current value, a time it was last set, and a full history of changes.

The code is up on Github: Read the README for more information on how to hack on this software.
