I like using Trello, but my company might block the site at any time so I am uncomfortable really depending on it. Is there anyway to buy a version to host within my company?

No, there is currently no ability to do that.

Additionally, there are no plans to offer a self-hosted version in the future. I'm a member of the Trello team. –  Rich Armstrong Oct 22 '11 at 19:57
    
@Rich Armstrong - do you know if there any open source clones that would allow self hosting. this is a big blocker for us –  leora Nov 20 '11 at 13:08

I'm not sure that asking someone who works on Trello for recommendations of open source clones is going to be very effective! :-) –  Clare Macrae Nov 20 '11 at 13:14

We don't mind! At Fog Creek, our commercial products compete with open source every day, so it's not a dirty word. We also contribute heavily to some open source projects (like Mercurial) If history is any guide, open source is not exactly synonymous with intuitive interfaces and beautiful design, so I'm not sure one will ever emerge for Trello, considering that's its main selling point. @leora, sorry this is a blocker for you! –  Rich Armstrong Nov 22 '11 at 16:48

Why don't you give Teambox a try? It's great! I personally find it better than Trello. It has an open source version as well, for you to host on your own private machines.

Note that the open source version of Teambox is only v3 which doesn't look anything like the site version (which is v4). It took me a few weeks to get it all setup. It was such a disappointment. –  Ian May 18 '13 at 18:46

There is an open source clone of Trello, that is actually quite good! It's called Kanban, and it is shockingly similar feel to Trello

https://github.com/somlor/kanban

Very cool. It only has the basic features at the moment (attachments, calendar, tagging, etc aren't there) but it does boards comments and cards very well, and that might be all you need.

It's also noticibly faster than Trello, and you can put it in your LAN
