Somos una startup latinoamericana (Miami, Santiago, Bogotá y Lima, próximamente en Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Ciudad de México), formada por ex ejecutivos de Google y Cisco, dedicada a traer a las mejores soluciones de Cloud Computing, y adaptarlas al mercado latinoamericano (un mercado GIGANTE, de unos 20.000 millones de dólares, al año).

La piedra angular de nuestra tecnología es la plataforma Openstack (desarrollada por la NASA, y que se usa en datacenters de todo el mundo).

Como buena startup, somos relajados en el estilo de trabajo, pero muy comprometidos con alcanzar nuestros objetivos con alto nivel de excelencia. Queremos ser los líderes a nivel regional en esta nueva tendencia de la industria, y estamos dando pasos importantes esa dirección.

Nuestro equipo tiene a ejecutivos altamente reconocidos en la industria, participando en negocios importante, y coders nativos (sabemos desde Assembler, hasta REACT) con mucha experiencia.
