Buoyant gives enterprises the tools to operate their cloud native applications safely, reliably, and effectively.
Buoyant builds practical tools to identify, mitigate, and prevent production incidents in microservices and cloud native apps—all without affecting the pace of product development.
Founded by ex-Twitter infrastructure engineers William Morgan and Oliver Gould, Buoyant is creator of Linkerd, the open source resilient service mesh for cloud-native applications. Created in 2016, Linkerd builds upon Finagle, the high-scalable library that powers companies like Twitter, Soundcloud, Pinterest and ING. Linkerd brings scalable, production-tested reliability to cloud native applications in the form of a service mesh, a dedicated infrastructure layer for service communication that adds resilience, visibility and without requiring complex application integration. In January 2017, Linkerd was voted into the the Cloud Native Computing Foundation as its fifth project, alongside Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing and Fluentd.
