Cloud Underground

About

Cloud Underground is more than just a business – it’s a movement to revolutionize the internet by making cloud-native technology accessible to everyone.

How do we do that? By spreading the knowledge through our podcast and the DevSecOps Dojo community. And by building insanely affordable single board computers (we call them cloudlets) and dual-board clusters (our supercomputers), powered by Raspberry Pi and NVIDIA Jetson PCB lines.

We also deploy containerized software solutions based on the open-source Olympiad platform, which was created by our very own COO Nato Riley.

Mission

Cloud Underground exists to share knowledge that MAKES DEVELOPMENT EASIER FOR DEVELOPERS, MORE SECURE FOR COMPANIES & MORE ATTAINABLE FOR INVENTORS as well as to PROVIDE A PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY FOR DEVELOPERS.

Long-term Vision

The vision of Cloud Underground is to HOST A THRIVING COMMUNITY OF INNOVATIVE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPERS & HOST AN APP STORE OF THEIR TOOLS AND CREATIONS. And to GROW THE CLOUD UNDERGROUND PODCAST to expand knowledge of edge computing, safe and secure networking, and general cybersecurity to the greater public.

"The mainstream comes to you, but you have to go to the underground."

Singer/songwriter, non-conformist

If we had to describe Cloud Underground using three adjectives, we’d pick the three listed above – cutting-edge, savvy, and inclusive. As industry titans, we lead by example. This means not only fostering creative and industry-changing new technologies, but also aligning ourselves with the cultural and global changes necessary to create a better world for everyone – no matter what your race, socioeconomic standing, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or political affiliations.
