We come from places like Facebook, Google, Yahoo!, VMware, Turn, Cloudera, and Quora to solve problems of building, scaling, and running modern infrastructure and applications. Our team has built these kinds of solutions before, to the scale of hundreds of thousands of systems serving hundreds of millions of users. We’re putting that experience to work in the belief that everyone, at every company, should have access to the same kind of capabilities as web scale organizations.
