What Aiven offers developers

Managing infrastructure takes time. Skilled developers shouldn’t have to spend thousands of hours maintaining data infra when their time would be better spent completing features or updating code.

At Aiven, we want to give developers that time back.

We’ve collected the most popular open source services and other tools you need into one simple platform that has everything you need and looks after itself.

It’s designed to make your life easier. You can deploy solid data infrastructure using multiple cloud providers in a matter of minutes – and get on with the job you were hired to do.

Data infrastructure that works for developers

Our founders and engineers are open source developers. We know first-hand the problems developers face each and every day. We’ve combined our experience, knowledge and belief in best open source practices, captured all that in code, and created an easy-to-use platform that gives you everything you need, and no unnecessary proprietary features that you don’t.

Designed by developers, for developers
