About Us

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

Fugue automates cloud operations, eases public and private sector compliance, and simplifies lifecycle management of the AWS infrastructure service stack. To ensure customers can innovate faster, Fugue validates systems before they're built and continuously enforces them after. Fugue has eight patents granted and 16 pending. Gartner named Fugue a Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing 2017.

Our founders started Fugue in 2013 to face one of cloud computing’s most vexing challenges—the nitty-gritty, secure management of cloud infrastructure operations for businesses large and small. Since then, we’ve built a new kind of system for operating the cloud that automates infrastructure-as-code and policy-as-code from one source of truth. Our devoted team of more than 60 skilled engineers and talented creative professionals combines 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.

  • Validations Give Government Agencies Speed and Certainty in the Cloud

    Fugue now supports the Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud region, which means federal agencies, like enterprises, can automate operations in the cloud fast, while simultaneously meeting regulatory demands. Fugue deployments start with powerful, but easy-to-understand code declarations in a composition that governs a system’s infrastructure. By including select libraries in that composition with simple import statements, a particular agency’s compliance regime gets integrated from the start. This kind of fully realized policy-as-code provides a scalable protocol for agency cloud ops and increases speed to mission.

  • The Next Cloud Outage is Coming—What You Can Do To Survive

    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. They have to be on our radars as a matter of routine. This makes architecting for failure and for the future, from the start, among the most pressing imperatives for business IT departments. 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.
