Underground Nexus

The Secure Asset Management Platform

All online companies depend on software, which means managing assets in today's digital era starts with software. Build a more capable business with Underground Nexus.

Underground Nexus is hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) designed for rapid data center construction and software factory implementation. This fully automated architecture allows you to copy/paste the equivalent of two years worth of critical security and governance focused configurations to make asset management a breeze.

 How It Works

Before we get into how we built Underground Nexus, the following video from TechWorld with Nana provides an excellent summary of why you might need the platform engineering that Underground Nexus provides with its stack.

Now that you understand why Underground Nexus is important, let's get into how it works, at a high level.

How is the Underground Nexus copy/paste data center possible? It is built on the backbone of two first-principle concepts – Git and BIOS. We ran with the reality that all systems have inputs and outputs while working through the supposition, could we make one giant data center that lives literally anywhere and everywhere? Better yet – what if we could run an entirely new operating system on top of this Git-powered input/output system?

These questions ultimately led to the creation of Underground Nexus engine as well as the Nexus0 operating system. Git-BIOS is the secret ingredient that ties the whole thing together. We wanted to limit any barriers to the Nexus’s ability to scale, and Git-BIOS removes those limitations.

It also drives cloud hosting costs down significantly because copy/paste data centers are significantly cheaper than physical buildings filled with thousands of servers.

Building scalable virtual environments has never been easier and more affordable!

What is a cloud-native DevSecOps software factory?

As we said before, Underground Nexus is a copy/paste data center and a cloud-native, DevSecOps software factory. But what does that mean, exactly? Let’s break it down.

  • Cloud-native. Pretty straight forward. This essentially applies to any apps that are fully hosted and built in cloud environments, i.e. they are native to the cloud.
  • DevSecOps. If you follow us on our socials, then you probably know that, in our minds, DevSecOps is basically the end-all-be-all of modern security. Short for development security operations, this philosophy implies that the ‘sec’ is built into your development at all levels of the operation. We like to think of it as putting the sec into your DevOps.
  • Software factory. As the modern wave of DevOps, the software factory model is meant to allow you to get quality products to market more efficiently and, therefore, faster. Though once thought to be only achievable by the FANG (MANG?) companies of the world, Underground Nexus allows small teams to create quality software factories with a fraction of the resources.

If it sounds too good to be true… it’s not! We’ve been building the Nexus – and developing inside of it – for years now. Our small team uses it, and now it’s refined and ready enough for you to use it, too.

Underground Nexus Across Industries


Those teaching cloud-native DevSecOps already know that cloud computing and data science skills – especially security – are typically the most expensive skills to teach and learn because they require access to expensive hardware and secure data centers.

However, Underground Nexus solves the problem of excessive costs because it can be deployed on just about any hardware – including a Raspberry Pi 4B. You can also scale hosting to hundreds of students, or more.

Small Business

Increase the power of your hosting choice and take back control of your cloud bills with Underground Nexus.

Small business owners can reach significantly more customers at much lower cost than traditional solutions (such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), GCP or Azure) when they migrate development to the Nexus software factory.

The Nexus also enables businesses to build new solutions with more universal compatibility quickly and at a much reduced cost to increase your customer reach.


For enterprise businesses, Underground Nexus presents a safer way to migrate to the hybrid cloud model. Dramatically increase your cloud scalability for the cost – save hundreds of thousands of dollars each year by making the switch.

Underground Nexus also gives software factory or business significantly more control over developer resources at cost. It was designed to apply great developer security by default for improved DevSecOps. And its centralized toolkit provides a massive productivity boost for development teams – all your tools are in one easy-to-use desktop environment.
