We Build Your Infrastructure.
We implement everything you need from your cloud platform using Infrastructure as Code.
You Own It.
You achieve it in just a few months. We show you how to ride it along the way.
You Drive It.
Customize everything or anything you want. It's your infrastructure.
Your business is growing. You need to own the infrastructure behind it, in order to be able to respond to all the unknowns and curveballs thrown your way. Make it your competitive advantage. Otherwise, when the unicorn falls, the rider will go down with it...
To be able to get to the next level that your business is headed to, you need to step up your game.
We’ve helped companies just like yours get to where they want to be with their cloud infrastructure and platform in record time because this is what we do. We have a very specific mission with a laser focus, that’s why we have such a high success rate. It's what we call SweetOps™.
Who This Is For...
We’ve been around the block a few times and seen what works and what doesn’t.
Let's make sure we can help you.
You're a tech-savvy startup founder who wants to achieve BIG things fast. You can't move fast enough because of your infrastructure and general lack of automation.
You're a venture-backed Startup aiming for unicorn status (e.g. Series A-D). Investors are putting pressure on you to take ownership of your infrastructure and there's no other way out.
Complex Software Architecture
You're a business with complex requirements where Heroku just won’t cut it. You started with an MVP and now have a full-blown micro-services architecture and developers need what AWS offers. You have to level up before bad things happen.
Moving Very Fast
Technology-driven and moving very fast (e.g. you know what you’re doing!) Overwhelming amount of things you want to achieve in a short amount of time.
You're a CTOs or VP Engineering who has been pushing off owning your platform infrastructure and now need to act fast. This is a big problem for you right now.
Can’t Ship Features Fast Enough
You can’t ship features fast enough, and everyone is frustrated. You have smart teams who lack cloud expertise or bandwidth to master it. You need it done yesterday and the right way.
SOC2, HIPAA, PCI Compliance Requirements
You may have strict HIPAA, SOC2 Type II, PCI/DSS compliance requirements. Deals are hung up on meeting them. You're far from reaching it today. Competitors will eat your lunch if you don't get it.
Need Shortest Path to Success
You need the shortest path to owning your infrastructure. You want someone to show you the ropes and help you get there FAST!
If this sounds like your situation, then you can’t fix any of this because of your infrastructure. You are now the blocker, and it's probably the last thing you want. If you're getting pressured on delivering a solution, then you know that you need to act, but fast thinking & acting is what got you here.
People within your company might be telling you it’s easy, but your experience tells you otherwise. As someone with an engineering background, you have a hard time believing claims that you can have your infrastructure built in about day. And we agree.
You would love to get a handle on your platform situation and come up with a gameplan, but you can’t spend forever researching it. You have enough on your plate already. Maybe your team has been floating ideas around about moving to kubernetes and introducing CI/CD, but the amount of information and conflicting opinions is frankly overwhelming. On top of that, you tried to do this yourself in-house, but that has also gone nowhere because everyone is slammed, and you might not even have the right skill sets in-house.
So maybe you’re trying to hire the team right now which you can entrust to architect your new platform, but discovered it’s so insanely competitive out there (not to mention expensive!)
You know you need to take the next step. That’s why you’re here.
If any of this sounds like you, the first thing you should know is that you are not alone. We’ve helped companies just like yours get to where you want to be with your infrastructure in record time because this is what we do.
So scroll down to find out how, by partnering with Cloud Posse, you will achieve Sweet Ops™.

Points of Differentiation
We are not like any other DevOps company. Cloud Posse does just one kind of engagement: we work with your engineering team virtually to implement our reference architecture, and then stick around for as long as it takes to see you succeed.

Cheaper and Faster Guaranteed Outcome
You will be hard-pressed to achieve a better outcome with consultants/freelancers and building it in-house
You might be able to achieve similar results in-house, given a solid team with the right experience. But consider if this is a core competency you need to own at this stage of the game? Would it provide the same level of assurances?
Our solution is 100% open source.
Our projects have been forked hundreds of thousands of times. We receive dozens of PRs every week. This is validation that we're providing is of immense value and works for others, not just us.
It also means our licensing is straightforward. Nearly everything is licensed under APACHE2 - a popular and well respected permissive license that lets you pretty much do what you want, just give us some credit where credit is due.
We offer total transparency.
We are transparent by nature. You will not be able to find a single other company that has put more “proof of work” doing-what-we-do on their GitHub than us. Period. We are so confident about our quality of work that we put our money where our mouth is: literally everything you need to get started is on our GitHub.
Since the work we showcase is public, it undergoes greater scrutiny, plus everything is peer-reviewed and tested.
BONUS: We also specialize in integrating paid solutions like Sumologic, Teleport, Datadog, Splunk, Pagerduty, Codefresh, PagerDuty, Cloudflare, etc into your stack. Our configurations for all of these integrations are still free and open-source.
