Find Supergiant at the ATX Startup Crawl

Posted by Adam Vanderbush on March 10, 2017

The team behind Qbox.io and Supergiant.io will join other companies at the ATX Startup Crawl at SXSW to introduce their hosted elasticsearch product and their open-source container orchestration system on March 13 from 5PM - 10PM.

Join us as the Startup Crawl showcases the best in talent, startups, and more that Austin’s technology community has to offer. Last year had more than 90 companies and 12,000+ registered crawlers. This year is going to be just as awesome.


Supergiant is the first production-grade container orchestration system that makes it easy to manage auto-scaling, clustered, stateful datastores.

Supergiant began in 2015 when the team at Qbox.io needed a production-ready, scalable solution for their Hosted Elasticsearch Service. After massive initial internal success, it was refined to easily launch and manage any containerized application. Supergiant solves many huge problems for developers who want to use scalable, distributed databases in a containerized environment.


Come chat with us and pick up some swag.

Built on top of Kubernetes, Supergiant exposes many underlying key features and makes them easy to use as top-layer abstractions. A Supergiant installation can be up and running in minutes, and users can take advantage of automated server management/capacity control, auto-scaling, shareable load balancers, volume management, extensible deployments, and resource monitoring through an effortless user interface.

Supergiant uses a packing algorithm that typically results in 25% lower compute-hour resources. It also enhances predictability, enabling customers with fluctuating resource needs to more fully leverage forward pricing such as AWS Reserved Instances.

Supergiant is available on Github. It is free to download and usable under an Apache 2 license. It currently works with Amazon Web Services, Digital Ocean, and Open Stack, and GCE.  Supergiant is a member and contributor to The Linux Foundation and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
