Who We Are

Founded in 2018, Upbound is the creator of open source Crossplane – the modern, cloud native alternative to Infrastructure as Code (IaC).

We created Crossplane to harness the power of the Kubernetes operating model, and to extend the benefits beyond container orchestration.

Among enterprises that use cloud, 84% have a multi-cloud strategy for their mission critical applications. But every cloud provider has its own proprietary control planes, APIs, controllers, tools, and UIs. As a result, workloads are not portable across different cloud providers, which causes problems for developers and IT teams.

Crossplane customers’ can modernize their IT operations with a single control plane across any resource — cloud, container, VM, serverless — and all the applications that use them.

Our Advantage

Crossplane solves the complexity of managing multiple cloud services, by:

  1. Reducing complexity through a unified, self-service approach to provisioning cloud-native infrastructure and applications. Empower platform teams with a universal control plane and organize around APIs.
  2. Speeding up development cycles and improve developer productivity because developers can deploy applications in a more automated and streamlined way. Free up their time to focus on building great apps.
  3. Accelerating business velocity with a modern, self-service operations strategy that injects speed and efficiency into the way you provision infrastructure. Increase mean time to release software and innovate faster.

Don't just take our word for it

Upbound Cloud automates and simplifies how software developers manage the lifecycle of their applications, allowing them to innovate more quickly.

How does our solution work?

Upbound makes tools that help organizations transition from manual scripting processes and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to modern, self-service and GitOps practices.

Platform teams can assemble infrastructure from multiple vendors and expose higher-level, self-service APIs for application teams to consume, without having to write any code.
