Why We Exist

Why We Exist

Waterbear Cloud was created to ease the burden of building and managing cloud environments on AWS.

Small enterprises have always been forced to pick between two extremes of cloud infrastructure: inflexible, shared-resource platforms that don’t scale well, or to spend time on software developers to tackle a complex cloud setup from the ground up.

We saw a lack of services in the cloud market focused on helping companies manage AWS hosting solutions that didn’t involve crossing a chasm of steep learning curves, developer resources, or large amounts of capital… so we set out to fix that.
