About Us

We're working on some of cloud computing's toughest challenges.

Fugue is an easy-to-use system for operating the cloud as a global computer. Declare your infrastructure with Fugue’s clean, powerful programming language, Ludwig. Use its rich libraries. Then, relax and watch Fugue’s kernel-like engine make your declarations reality—enforcing them continuously and automatically. Initially available for workloads on Amazon Web Services, Fugue will support other cloud providers in the near future.

Our founders started Fugue in 2013 to face one of cloud computing’s most vexing challenges—the nitty-gritty management of cloud infrastructure operations for businesses large and small. Since then, we’ve invested the time, effort, and resources required to build a new kind of cloud-native operating system, designed according to cloud’s first principles. No short cuts. Our devoted team of more than 50 skilled engineers and talented creative professionals combine decades of experience with fresh vision and relentless quality control to deliver an innovative approach that works.

We’re based in Frederick, MD, Washington, D.C., and Silicon Valley, CA. But, we span the globe, with team members in New York and Atlanta and as far away as Zurich, Tokyo, and New Zealand, all collaborating daily. We’re venture-backed, having raised $74MM to date, with prescient, supportive partners at New Enterprise Associates, Future Fund, The Maryland Venture Fund, and Core Capital.

    Whether businesses are using cloud providers, on-premise data centers, or hybrid setups to host web services and backends, infrastructure failures are a fact of life.

The next five years will see the rise and democratization of centralized control systems for cloud ops with fault tolerance architected into the very fabric of those systems.
