Company Details

Update

Founded in 2011, Piston makes Piston OpenStack™, a software product that automates the orchestration of an entire private cloud environment on commodity servers. Companies building web, mobile, and big data applications use Piston’s secure and cost-effective AWS-like capabilities to bring new products to market faster. By managing a group of servers as a single pool of elastic and scalable computing resources, Piston OpenStack improves datacenter efficiency thereby accelerating the application development process.

Created by several of the founders of OpenStack, Piston drives the OpenStack project forward via code contributions, thought leadership through the OpenStack Project Policy Board, and in support of the OpenStack developer community. We willingly share our expertise, leadership, guidance, vision and code with the community and the other companies working to make OpenStack the industry standard in cloud.

The company is headquartered in San Francisco and funded by True Ventures, Hummer Winblad, Swisscom Ventures, Cisco Systems, Inc., Data Collective, and Divergent Ventures.
