Our History

Caylent is a cloud native services company that helps organizations bring the best out of their people and technology using AWS. We are living in a software-defined world where technology is at the core of every business. To thrive in this paradigm, organizations need to empower their people and processes through technology.

Through a combination of expert advice and implementation, we see around corners and anticipate needs before they become challenges. We are forward thinking, exploratory in our approach and pride ourselves on true partnership with our customers. Being a partner means engaging together in a focused effort to drive our customers’ vision and achieve technical and business results.

As a cloud native organization with roots in building developer tools, Caylent was born in the cloud. Our mission from day one has been to help companies accelerate their cloud native journey. We recognize that there is  a shift in the way software is built, deployed and managed and that running applications in the cloud is challenging. Since our formation, we’ve been an active member of the open source community focused on helping companies at all stages of their cloud journey maximize the value of their technology investment through open source. 

Our commitment to the open source community includes membership in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and status as a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP). This dedication extends to our philosophy, mindset, and investment in our people and practices. Our commitment to learning and career development includes providing time for engineers and architects to study, train, and get certified on technologies that our customers value. This dedication to continuous learning enables us to have opinions grounded in experience and best practices, which are a strong value add to our customers who look to our team to solve the most complex technical challenges.

Caylent’s core practice areas include Cloud DevOps, Cloud Migration & Modernization, Cloud Data Management, Cloud Native Applications. 

Our Beginnings
