ElasticBox’s goal is to build a platform which will make it as easy as possible to develop, deploy, and manage applications for any cloud infrastructure. The company having around 50 employees, is pioneering a simplified, modular, service-based
application development process, where fully configured components of application architecture are encapsulated as “Boxes” and made available as a service.
\"Historically, a healthy tension has existed between developers, IT Operations, and the CIO. Developers need cloud resources on-demand; IT Operations seek to build best practices and streamline the application lifecycle; and the CIO wants to drive business innovation without compromising governance,\" says Ravi Srivatsav, Co- Founder & CEO, ElasticBox.
The ElasticBox platform was purpose-built to enable developers and IT operations to innovate new applications across private, public, or hybrid clouds, without worrying about implementation of the underlying infrastructure.
