About Aiven

Our mission is to remove the pain from managing databases and help our clients refocus on their core business.

We accomplish this by providing services that are usable, reliable, relevant, and secure at competitive price points. Aiven hosts and manages open-source database and messaging systems for business clients around the world on all major cloud platforms.

How we started
How we started

After building expertise managing mission-critical databases for companies like F-Secure and Nokia, Aiven’s founders wanted to expand their impact by striking out on their own.

In 2010, and over the next six years, they started an open-source database management company to help small and large-scale organizations solve complex database cases.

They began to notice that cloud adoption was increasing despite an ecosystem that was fragmented into closed and open-source solutions offered on one or two cloud platforms.

Their vision? One open-source cloud database hub that serves all database needs wherever needed. The first step toward that reality was taken in 2016 with the start of Aiven.

Beginning with a managed PostgreSQL service on AWS and GCP, Aiven has grown quickly, and now offers seven open-source services on all major clouds worldwide: making us the first true open-source cloud database hub.
