Growing the Team
Elastisys kicked off the year with a focus on the most valuable asset - the team. The team did not only increase in numbers, adding 10 new employees to a total of 46 team members during 2023, but more importantly, we expanded in skills, fostering a culture where every member contributes to the collective success. We love technology, but we also believe in people over technology. That is why the people behind the technology are, and will always be, the most important factor for us.
"Our great team is the most valuable and important part of Elastisys."
Johan Tordsson, CEO
The Funding - An Important Milestone
Elastisys reached a crucial turning point with a notable funding raising achievement, securing 30 million SEK just before the summer. This injection of capital will help us accelerate the journey towards our vision: to enable organizations across Europe to accelerate innovation through open source cloud-native technology while ensuring security and regulatory compliance.
We are truly grateful for the trust and belief shown by our investors. This support, combined with positive feedback from customers, fortified the confidence that what we are doing together is truly great.

Product Updates and Research
In our continuous pursuit of creating innovation, we've made significant strides in enhancing our platform and operations to better serve our customers and contribute to their security and innovation. Let's delve into some key features for 2023.
Auto-Scaling GPU - A Vinnova Project
To stay at the forefront of technological innovation, Elastisys, together with our partner Elastx, contributed to a project researching possibilities with auto-scaling GPU capabilities, which was supported by Vinnova. Idle cloud resources waste energy, money, and other resources. The goal of this project was to find a way to reduce this waste. It is done in two ways that work together. First, we dynamically scale resource allocation to resource needs. Second, we shift usage from electricity load peak hour times. This makes better use of electricity during off-peak hours. During the autumn of 2023, this project was successfully finalized.
Advancements in Argo CD and Jaeger
We are excited to announce the significant advancements in our additional managed services for the Compliant Kubernetes platform, Argo CD and Jaeger. These tools have evolved into powerful preview services, providing our clients with enhanced capabilities for seamless deployment and comprehensive tracing.
Self-Managed Software Development
As a step of developing the new Self-Managed offering, we have been setting the focus on creating more self-managed opportunities for our customers. Our customers can now manage popular software like Kafka and MongoDB via their official Community Operator, SealedSecrets and Flux. This creates a higher level of flexibility for customers with critical infrastructures to manage their environments themselves while gaining the benefits of our Kubernetes platform, Compliant Kubernetes, to keep their applications secure.
Looking Ahead - What’s to Come in 2024
With eyes set on the future, we are excited about the upcoming year. We are committed to fostering an environment where the team flourishes and each member contributes to the collective journey towards our vision and mission.
“Looking ahead to 2024, our focus is on team growth, market expansion, and maintaining an open dialogue with partners and customers – building a foundation for mutual success.”
Johan Tordsson, CEO
