About us

Vision

Our vision is to provide a simple cloud computing platform.

Mission

We’re on a mission to simplify cloud computing for humans so that they focus on building software that frees us, and makes the world a better place.

Who we are

In 2016, Cloud Matrix (that’s us) had the crazy idea to start offering cloud hosting, on top of a cutting-edge cloud computing platform.

One of the key benefits of the cloud is the opportunity to scale up affordably, in alignment with your business growth. With the power of the cloud, you no longer need to outlay massive amounts of capital for servers, IT infrastructure, or data centre hosting. Instead, you can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of cloud servers in minutes and deliver results faster.

Today, we provide a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of businesses in South Africa, and around the world. Hundreds of clients who trust our cloud platform with their sensitive business data. As we continue our expansion, we are constantly researching, developing, and improving our cloud platform and hosting environment.

With data centre locations in South Africa (Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town), New York, San Fransisco, Amsterdam, Singapore, Germany, Canada and India, people in all industries are taking advantage of our benefits.

Growth pillars

Low cost

We offer low, pay-as-you-go pricing with no up-front expenses or long-term commitments. We are able to build and manage infrastructure at scale and pass the cost saving benefits onto you in the form of lower prices.

Scalability

Scalability has been built into the foundation of our network architecture. Our entire network was designed to be seamlessly scalable. Our cloud infrastructure allows you to quickly innovate, experiment and iterate. You are empowered to deploy new applications instantly and scale them as your workload grows. You can also scale down instantly based on demand. Pay for what you need, whether that be one server or thousands. You have the power to create, scale and destroy instantly.

Security

We are constantly improving our security measures to protect your data. We have built a secure, durable technology platform. Our services and data centres have multiple layers of operational and physical security to ensure the integrity and safety of your data.
