84codes is a Swedish tech company dedicated to simplifying cloud infrastructure for developers. We provide a set of high quality cloud-hosted open source services: CloudAMQP, CloudKarafka, ElephantSQL, and CloudMQTT. By doing so, we are helping thousands of companies to build distributed systems that process millions of messages per second and to build IoT services that have millions of devices pushing sensor data over the Internet. But above all, we help developers to focus on building new applications and not having to spend time on managing their specialized servers.
84codes was founded in 2012 by Carl Hörberg. He saw the need of a hosted RabbitMQ solution when he was trying to use RabbitMQ in combination with Heroku and AppHarbor at the consultancy company that he worked for at the time. He believed that cloud-based messaging would increase the speed of getting an application to the market. Where developers could focus on the core part of their applications, instead of managing and maintaining servers and queueing infrastructure, like updates and mirroring of clusters.
Since our launch in 2012 we have added thousands of server instances under our management in several different clouds around the world, helping more than 20,000 happy customers in over 100 countries.
Our vision is that developers should never have to set up or maintain servers. That's why we've made it our mission to let developers focus on their applications by offering a growing set of high-quality cloud-hosting services.
