About Aiven

We help organizations fuel the continuous innovation needed to create awesome, data-intensive applications by using the leading open source technologies.

Aiven's founders built their expertise managing mission-critical data infrastructure for companies like F-Secure and Nokia. They noticed that cloud adoption was increasing but infrastructure solutions were either proprietary or difficult to translate into business results.

They struck out on their own and built a true, open source data cloud that organizations could use to build a modern data infrastructure. With Aiven, companies could grow from prototyping to world-wide scale at greater and greater velocities.
