We are Elestio, a managed open-source software services provider.

Elestio was originally built by our founding technical team as an internal tool to manage thousands of virtual machines running open-source software in production environments used by millions of users, Fortune 100 companies, as well as startups, web agencies, and freelancers. Our proven team has been developing and refining Elestio's core technology for over 15 years, deploying and maintaining over 12,000 production services.

Elestio supports open source initiatives by creating a reliable source of income for developers all around the world.

We share revenue with open-source authors participating in our program. This is a win-win to us. Open-source developers and communities get more resources to improve their softwares and our customers, staff and other stakeholders know that they are helping to support something really positive.

The goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem where open-source authors can focus on improving their software without any DevOps responsibilities, and without going into B2B/SaaS business models.
