About Elastisys

Elastisys provides products and services for scalable and responsive IT systems. Our customers come to us to get worry-free cloud operations. We deliver by professional services (consulting) and software solutions, centered around automation. We have patented predictive auto-scaling technology with multi-cloud capabilities. Our products and services are based on decades of internationally leading research in distributed systems, high performance computing, and cloud automation. Our company was founded in 2011 and is a spin-off company from the renowned distributed systems research group at Umeå University.

We believe in the power of intelligent automation

We believe that machine learning and AI should be more extensively applied to automate IT operations. Just like we can build self-driving cars, we should build self-driving computer systems.

Skilled technicians get more time to deal with problems that matter when systems manage themselves. Their time should not be wasted with manual and boring routine tasks. Instead, they should focus on the issues that bring actual benefit to their companies. Let computers deal with the boring problems, so your team can bring more value!

Our team consists of expert devops engineers and data scientists. They are available as consultants to help you reach success sooner. We are Sweden’s only Kubernetes Service and Technical Partner. We also have great partnerships with RedHat and Canonical, too. Let our experienced team help accelerate your agility with Kubernetes and Cloud Native technology.
