Our story

Pioneering innovation’s journey began in 2013, as a Silicon Valley-based technology company that offered an innovative, hyper-converged Kubernetes platform for IT and business initiatives involving big data and databases. Over the years, it evolved into a full-fledged product suite that delivered cloud-native capabilities to automate the deployment, scaling, and lifecycle management of enterprise, 5G, and Edge applications on Kubernetes. The core technology uses application bundles and application pipelines, which are automated through patented infrastructure and application-topology awareness technology.

Today, our products are used globally by Fortune 1000 companies including Rakuten Mobile, 1&1, Orange, BNP Paribas, Palo Alto Networks, SAP, Sabre, and USAA. Its three major product lines are custom-built for the enterprise and telecom sectors. These products enable hyperautomation, and they orchestrate and manage the lifecycles of bare-metal infrastructures, 3rd party appliances, Virtual Network Functions (NVFs), Cloud-native Network Functions (CNFs), and services, with built-in logging, monitoring, and policy engines, for closed-loop automation, managed through a single pane of glass. Together, they provide intuitive and declarative interfaces that auto-discover and auto-configure resources for the service’s entire lifecycle, reducing deployment complexity, timelines, and human error.

Celebrating new beginnings

As a company, we have always prided ourselves in being at the forefront of innovation. Our accelerated success has stemmed from our ability to solve the real-world challenges in automating deployment, scaling, and lifecycle management of enterprise applications and 5G rollouts using the power of Kubernetes and cloud-native services. Our competitive positioning, backed by differentiated technology, a world-class team, outstanding partnerships, and 75+ IPs, reinforce our standing among the undisputed leaders in the cloud-native space. As of November 2022, we are excited to continue this journey as part of Rakuten Symphony’s Unified Cloud business unit. Our products are rebranded as Rakuten Cloud to reflect our positioning as an integral business unit of Rakuten Symphony, in line with the company’s broader vision and global perspective.
