We started Koyeb as a team of three founders, Edouard, Bastien and I, Yann. Edouard is currently in charge of the product, ensuring we fulfill all our users needs, while Bastien takes care of the heavy duty of envisioning a rock solid technology for our platform. Koyeb is our second venture and here is a bit of our history to understand our motivations.
Working in the cloud industry since 2011 and former executives at Scaleway, the 2nd largest Cloud Service Provider (CSP) in Europe, we've seen the rise of Cloud Platforms from the inside out during the last decade.
At Scaleway, we have been part of the founding team at the time when 2nd generation Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers came to market. We've seen our users easily migrate their Compute services between CSPs and use multiple Compute services thanks to a rich ecosystem. We've also seen users struggle to migrate their data between CSPs due to complexity and vendor locking.
The adoption of the cloud as now risen to a point where nearly all companies use the cloud to store all or part of their data. A large part of them end up locked with one particular cloud vendor for the storage and management of their data, in effect making them captive of their CSP. We believe we can support these companies, enable simple migration between CSPs and allow users to easily leverage the power of multiple CSPs.
Our mission is to provide a third generation Cloud Platform, leveraging the power of installed infrastructure providers.
