<h2>What is Matrix?</h2>
<p><a href="https://matrix.org/">Matrix</a> is a modern and decentralised,
open-source chat solution backed by a dynamic community. It provides many
advanced user-focused features such as end-to-end encryption, bridging or audio
& video calls.</a></p>

<ul>
<li>
The strongest point of Matrix is <b>federation</b>: a Matrix homeserver - which is
what we offer - allows to manage your own community... and to join the whole
Matrix network. You will be able to exchange with users on any other Matrix
server without any special configuration!
</li>
<li>
End-to-end encryption (E2EE) means that - when enabled - only the sender and
intended receiver(s) will be able to read the messages: even ungleich, who
manages the matrix server, will not be able to access the content of E2EE
messages.
</li>
<li>
Our Matrix servers are provided with a TURN server, meaning that you'll be
able to use voice and video calls out of the box.
</li>
<li>
We support bridging to other networks such as Mattermost instances, IRC,
Slack, Telegram and more via <a
href="https://github.com/42wim/matterbridge">Matterbridge</a>.

feature1_text:
The evolution of Matrix is managed through an open governance process,
supervised by [The Matrix.org Foundation](https://matrix.org/foundation).
Moreover, all the software backing the network is [Free and Open
Source](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_and_open-source_software), which
guarantees quality and security.

feature2_title: Secure & decentralized
---
feature2_text:
Both end-to-end encryption and federation are *built-in* into Matrix. The
former will be enabled by default in the near future, making it a valuable tool
for activists and privacy-minded people all across the world.

feature3_title: Zero Carbon

feature3_text:
We host your Matrix homeserver in our [own
datacenter](/u/projects/data-center-light/) in Switzerland, which we believe to
be as ecologically-friendly as a datacenter can get: we use old buildings,
second-hand hydroelectric, passive cooling and are directly plugged into a
hydroelectric power plant.

<h2>Growing fast!</h2>
<p>As of February 2020, the Matrix network supports ~13.5M visible
accounts, ~5.0M messages a day, ~40.000 federated servers and even <a
href="https://archive.fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/matrix_french_state/">governments</a>!</p>
<p>A lot of privacy, security and usability work is going on... which
means that Matrix will get even more awesome in the coming months!</p>
<p>You can follow the <a href="https://matrix.org/blog/posts">Matrix.org
blog</a> to get frequent updates on Matrix's development, and chat with
us on <a
href="https://matrix.to/#/%23matrix:ungleich.ch">#matrix:ungleich.ch</a>!

<h2>Hosted Matrix Chat</h2>
<p>We will provide you with your own dedicated Matrix 'Home Server', as well as
a hosted web client. Matrix requires a domain name in order to join the global
networks, which will appear in your username (e.g.
<i>@penguin:example.0co2.cloud</i>): you can either use a subdomain of
<i>0co2.cloud</i> (e.g. <i>example.0co2.cloud</i>) or your own domain name. We
will deploy a <a href="https://github.com/42wim/matterbridge">Matterbridge</a>)
instance (bridging to Mattermost, IRC, Slack, Telegram, ...) on demand.
</p>
<p>There are <a href="https://matrix.org/clients/">many Matrix
clients</a>, although we <b>strongly recommend</b> <a
href="https://about.riot.im/features">Riot</a> which is the most
advanced at the moment. Be aware, however, that you might be a bit
confused with its UI/UX at first (there is ongoing work to improve
onboarding): we encourage you to <a href="https://riot.im/app/">try
Riot/Matrix</a> first if your are not already familiar with it.
</p>
</div>
<div class="col-md-6">
<h2>Transparent Costs</h2>
<p>The cost of our Matrix-as-a-Service offer is divided between a base maintenance
fee and the price of the dedicated Virtual Machine (VM) we deploy for you in
our <a href="/u/projects/data-center-light">own datacenter</a>. There is no artifical
restriction on the number of users or size of rooms: the only limit is the
resources we allocate to your node. We will extend them on demand, following
the pricing model (CPU, RAM, Disk) of our <a href="https://datacenterlight.ch/">VM
offer</a>.</p>
<div class="alert alert-info">
We also offer custom-sized deployment. You can discuss our offer with us by
email or even on matrix, via <a
href="https://matrix.to/#/%23matrix:ungleich.ch">#matrix:ungleich.ch</a>!
</div>
</div>
</div>
<p style="text-align: center; font-weight: bold;"> You will find more details
on our <a href="https://redmine.ungleich.ch/projects/open-infrastructure/wiki/Ungleich_Matrix-as-a-Service_(MaaS)">Matrix-as-a-Service FAQ</a> and on <a href="https://matrix.org/discover"> Matrix's official documentation</a>.
</p>
<div class="alert alert-secondary">
You might be also interested in our <a
href="../zero-carbon-chat">Mattermost-based chat offer</a>, which might be
closer to what you expect for a enterprise team chat at the moment. We use both
at ungleich, since Matrix is especially convenient to reach out to the world!
