Making Kubernetes as easy as using your mobile phone
We empower organizations to confidently pursue cloud with products that make Kubernetes secure, cost-effective and scalable.
Founded in 2016 with a vision to make cloud delivery simple and secure, Appvia is a trusted partner to organizations worldwide, from financial services to government entities.
2016 — Founding Story
The very beginning
The founding team behind Appvia was working with the Home Office to transform the way it delivers digital services. With more than 700 developers working on 400 apps, the stakes were high.
Kubernetes had recently emerged as a viable solution to the problem of getting developers to use containers consistently at scale. Drawing on our extensive experience of software engineering for large organizations, we decided to build a system, the precursor to Appvia, to harness the abilities of this new technology.
2017 — Our Goal
Turning confusion into clarity
We wanted engineers to be empowered, but we also wanted security and speed. This meant scrutinising how Home Office teams worked, giving them the ability to self-serve while improving oversight, and making extremely complex technology simple to use. Plus we needed an approach that would work for any size of team, from two to 40 engineers. No pressure.
In the end, the impact was profound. Our system helped the Home Office speed up development and reduce the use of specialist resources. This resulted in a huge cost reduction, measured across the 40 projects we were involved in.
2019 — Appvia
Experience becomes a valuable product
While wrestling with the challenges of government-scale work, we realized it might be possible to turn our experience into a product. Then we could help other organisations deal with similar issues and steer clear of the potentially damaging alternative: building a system from scratch. From that realization, Appvia was born..
