The cloud service providers of today run their interfaces and services with control planes. They’re able to enable self-service and flexibility to their customers without letting go of control, governance, reliability or security. Meanwhile, enterprises continue to run their cloud infrastructure with config — resulting in instability, security risks and low productivity.
Upbound is democratizing the best kept secret in cloud computing — the control plane. By leveraging custom APIs, cloud engineers are no longer hindered by configuration drift, multiplying workspaces and frustrated developers. With Upbound, platform engineers get centralized control, governance and stability and developers get freedom of self-service.
Upbound is the creator and maintainer of the popular open source project Crossplane, a framework for building cloud native control planes. The company is a Series B startup and has raised $69M in total funding. Upbound’s backers include GV (formerly Google Ventures), Altimeter Capital and Intel Capital.
