Obsidian is a consulting company that specialises in Open Source based solutions for customers. The majority of our work revolves around web-based applications - dynamic websites with database backends.
Obsidian's two other focus points are Jet - an ISP/IP-based billing system; and a hosting facility providing custom hosting requirements for clients that need something special (for instance, Zope hosting).
Obsidian Consulting provides software and consulting services, specialising in Internet Service Provider (ISP) and billing systems, dynamic web site design, data driven web site design, and ecommerce enabled Internet applications. We also provide high quality specialist webhosting facilities. Our clients include national ISPs, government departments and businesses covering a diverse range of industries.

We can help you stay on top of the latest developments in Internet technology, and help you make better use of what the Internet has to offer.

Our hosting services currently provide quality hosting for over 600 clients. Obsidian is also currently involved in groundbreaking work around wireless networks and is providing consulting services and billing software to leading wireless internet providers.
In addition to software development, Obsidian provides product consultancy, training, system administration and support.
