Making the Autonomous Cloud dream to reality

We are entrepreneurs at heart and terrible salespeople, so we knew we had to come up with a product that would sell itself.

Since we can’t sell donuts (we’re terrible bakers), we realized that our best chance would be to develop an innovative solution where the value is easily measured.
We chose to focus our efforts on saving businesses money.

Leveraging our 40 years of combined expertise in cloud technologies, we had built a real-time, fully automated cloud cost management platform.

Our obsession for optimization fuels every decision we make, from the source of our data to our automated approach. We are now on a mission to leverage the cloud’s flexibility to the fullest extent by automatically adjusting resources based on the applications’ needs.

Proud to partner with world-renowned investors
