Scaleway offers free video conference powered by BigBlueButton

Scaleway is a European cloud hosting company that targets both companies and developers. Their servers are fast, inexpensive, and well supported. The BigBlueButton project has been using Scaleway servers for years for testing and building releases of BigBlueButton.

Recently, they offered Ensmble.video (BigBlueButton), a free BigBlueButton session to anyone in the world affected by Covid-19. With this service, you can quickly create a BigBlueButton session and invite others to join.

“Scaleway has been a leading European cloud infrastructure provider for the past two decades, with strong ties to its ecosystem. Giving back is part of who we are. Within a couple days of Covid-19 confinement, we set up Scaleway Ensemble to provide free video conferencing to anyone in need during this crisis. BigBlueButton made this easy by providing a commercial-grade yet open-source web conferencing solution. People are loving it!” – Yann Lechelle, CEO, Scaleway

The free service is available until end of July 2020.
