Ridge is building an edge cloud that empowers developers to effortlessly deploy and scale any application in any location

IT is Getting More and More Complex

Huge quantities of data are being generated all over the network. Application developers have higher performance standards than ever before. And new applications require real-time insights.

The Latency Challenge

Today’s centralized cloud architectures are not optimized for an increasingly latency-sensitive world. While applications have become more complex and performance-sensitive, the amount of time it takes data to get to the centralized cloud has not changed.

A New Architecture

The increasing demands of applications will require that the world shift to a distributed computing model. Compute must be physically closer to end users and endpoints. We believe that this shift is necessary for the cloud of the future to keep up with developer and end user requirements.

A Costly Trade-Off

Today, developers need to choose between the ease of use of a public cloud and the performance of building their own distributed infrastructure. Ridge gives them the best of both worlds.

Ridge's Mission

Ridge eliminates the need to make a choice between ease of deployment and performance. By successfully combining the flexibility and ease-of-use of the public cloud with the geographic distribution and low latency of the highly distributed approach, we will not only power the cybersecurity, IOT, and gaming companies of today, but also the flying taxis, robot waiters, and virtual reality systems of tomorrow.
