Cloud Engineering

We master the hardest challenges. We can help you with yours.

Our seasoned cloud engineers embed within your team as subject matter experts on all things Kubernetes and DevOps. We help them tackle targeted problems and provide the judgment and expertise they need to de-risk high-profile and challenging projects.

"SuperOrbital really stood out. They quickly understood the problems we faced, and they had deep business and technological expertise and a partnership-based approach"

David Smith, Director of Operations, AMG

Our customers include financial institutions such as Bloomberg and Discover, crypto-based startups like Hedge, BitGo and m10, federal agencies such as 18F, GSA and and security companies like Bastille Networks.

How We Work

We’re a small, 100% remote company focused on helping our clients with Kubernetes and DevOps practices.

We’re partners, not contractors. We teach by doing. We embed within your team, work the way they work and use the tools they use. We communicate constantly and document with zeal. We favor simple and consistent over clever and unique. We build for sustainability and strive for continual improvement.

"SuperOrbital was incredible. They really put in the extra effort to ensure our infrastructure was simple, stable, secure and maintainable. We couldn't be happier!"

Chris Metcalfe, Co-founder, Hedge

Our Solutions

We’re seasoned experts in tools like Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform, Packer and Vault and all of the major cloud providers, but we’re not beholden to any technology or vendor. We’ll always steer you toward the simplest solutions that will work for your team now and in the future.

We favor combining tried and true off the shelf products. But when bespoke code is called for, we’re more than comfortable developing test-driven and production grade solutions in Python, Go, Ruby or (gasp) Bash.

Even as the options for DevOps-related tools improve, it still feels like assembling IKEA furniture. So SuperOrbital made a lot of sense. They could sort out the mix of open source software and hosted tools that were the best fit for our needs and assemble our build, metrics and monitoring systems.

Christian Sepulveda VP Engineering, Bastille Networks

We charge $2,640/day and work on engagements four days a week.

We're happy to offer discounts to non-profits, OSS projects, seed-funded startups, and companies founded by BIPOC, womxn, and non-binary leaders.

Our engagements are zero-commitment. We believe in retaining customers through stellar execution, not contractual obligation.

Know you need help, but too overwhelmed to think?

Here are some examples of projects we can rock for your team:

On-premise Virtual Appliances

Enterprise sales can transform a company, but enterprise requirements can drown a team. We've been there.

We can work with you to migrate your product to a virtual appliance to suit customer needs in a way that’s sustainable and improves your operations and reduces friction.

GitOps Pipelines

The old days of point-and-click operations are long gone. If your team isn't deploying infrastructure through a GitOps pipeline, then you’re losing out on the promises of repeatability, accountability and security that Kubernetes provides.

We can help you choose, install, and configure a cloud-native CI/CD system that will get your features to production faster, remove gobs of developer friction, and increase your security posture.

Multi-Cluster and Multi-Cloud

Are all of your eggs in one large cluster? Spreading the load across many smaller clusters decreases the blast radius for incidents and avoids cluster scaling limitations.

Once you're multi-cluster, being multi-cloud is just a short hop away! Provisioning your clusters in separate clouds can help with availability and allows you to arbitrage compute costs.

Production-Grade Controllers

In concept, custom controllers are simple. In practice, building a production-grade operator in Go that deals gracefully with failures, handles CRD upgrades, and won't overwhelm the API is much harder.

We don't just build operators; we pair with your developers, teaching them our best practices and hard-won insights.

Kubernetes Adoption

Migrations are arduous, time-consuming and ultimately distracting. Let us take the lead and guide you around all of the bumps and pitfalls that we've already had to fall for. We know all of the ins and outs of building efficient Dockerfiles, managing production-grade Kubernetes clusters, and automating secure environments in AWS, GCP and Azure.

Operational Visibility

Fight fewer fires and sleep better at night.

Giving you the visibility you need isn't as simple as signing up for Datadog (though that’s a great service). It also requires a plan for instrumenting your code and business intelligence through metrics, monitoring, alerting and logging. We’re true DevOps - we’re just as comfortable writing Python as we are tweaking the kernel.

Still don't know where to start?

We're amazing at talking with your team and identifying the issues that're holding them back. Reach out for a free consultation.

"We've seen other companies make the mistake of using AWS like the traditional infrastructure they're already used to.

SuperOrbital steered us toward cloud-native techniques that made AWS simple, easy to maintain, resilient to failure, and incredibly secure."

Daniel Hoffmann, Co-founder, Hedge
