The Morpheus Story
As the first truly unified ops orchestration platform on the market, Morpheus was built to solve problems nobody was adequately solving.
Morpheus was born out of necessity and architected by DevOps and Cloud Computing practitioners for their own use. The platform originated inside of Bertram Capital, a San Mateo-based private equity firm with more than $1 Billion in capital and investments in dozens of portfolio companies.
Bertram Labs is a world-class team of software developers and ops professionals whose sole purpose is to rapidly implement IT solutions to fuel the growth of the Bertram portfolio. In 2010, that team needed a 100% infrastructure agnostic cloud management platform which would integrate with the DevOps tools they were using to develop and deploy applications for a range of customers on an unpredictable mix of heterogeneous infrastructure. Such a tool didn’t exist so Bertram Labs created their own solution…
Enter Morpheus Data: Hitting the ground running in 2015 as a high growth company with years of development history, plenty of funding and a software platform already proven in thousands of application deployments.
Morpheus was spun-out of Bertram and has quickly grown to what it is today, a stand-alone company serving some of the largest Fortune 1000 companies and Service Providers in the world. We offer IT leaders, CloudOps and DevOps teams capabilities they never thought possible: instant self-service provisioning across bare metal, VM, and containerized deployments spanning on-premises, hosted, and public clouds.
With built-in analytics, automation, and best-in-class integrations Morpheus provides a systematic solution to optimize resources, enable governance, accelerate workflows, and modernize applications.
