What Platform Teams are saying

Vitaliy Shynkar

DevOps Engineer @ Element Science

"Nucleus is blazing fast to spin up Environments and clusters. They make handling integrations and environment variables a breeze."

Chinmay Rathod

Co-founder/CTO @ Forward

"We used Nucleus to containerize our services and quickly stand up multiple environments. "

Tim Blumberg

Co-Founder/CTO @ Pineway Health

"We spent 2 months trying to containerize our services and get EKS up and running and it still had issues. With Nucleus, we did it in less than 3 hours."

Jeff Wang

CTO @ Flex

"In the early days at Linkedin and Paypal, we had whole teams managing our platforms. I would have loved to use something like Nucleus to free those teams up to focus on customer value."

Arnold Villatoro

CTO/Co-founder @ SpecCheck

"Coming from Lyft, where we had a great internal platform to help us manage our services, I wanted to find something similar. As soon as I saw Nucleus I knew I found it. "

Karthik Ravi

CTO @ TryMata

"Nucleus has saved us literally months of devOps work and the team has been there every step of the way with help and support as we have needed it."

Alex Klippel


"Nucleus was able to containerize our services and give us on-demand environments whenever we needed it. Helped free up a lot of time for our team to focus on building features for our customers."

Armen Solakhyan

Co-Founder/CTO @ BioAccess Platforms

"We knew that we wanted to have the right infrastructure from day 1 so going with Nucleus was an easy choice. Everything just worked."

Ben Smith

CTO @ Emerald Cloud Lab

"It took us 3 years at Box to build what Nucleus provides through their platform. I wish we could have used them at Box, it would have saved us a lot of time and money."

Alan Messer

CTO @ Mojio

"What the Nucleus team has built is impressive and definitely in the direction of where the industry is going. Teams shouldn't be building everything from scratch internally. "

Real-world examples

Use cases

Developer Self Service

Developers using Nucleus can easily self-service integrations, environments, environment variables and more.
