We make complex software run by itself.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make complex, cloud-native software run by itself. We accomplish this by separating application development from operations and building tools focused on automating operations. The vast majority of software tooling, to date, has been focused on making developers more efficient. We make operators more efficient.

About Us

We are a group of passionate builders that created Mailgun and open source libraries like Teleport, Vulcand and Flanker. At Mailgun, we fully embraced the DevOps and Public SaaS movements and discovered the challenges of both. We also came across numerous large customers that wanted Mailgun to run on the their own infrastructure and realized the daunting task of running application installations across multiple infrastructures.

Mailgun was acquired by Rackspace and during our careers at Rackspace, we encountered enterprise customers that are desperate for third party operators ("managed service providers") to help run applications on their private infrastructure.

Through these experiences, we came to believe in a new and better model that allows developers to focus on building applications and operators to focus on running applications. At Gravitational, we build applications that automate the operational tasks of running complex, cloud-native applications.
