Otta's take on Aiven

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Cloud computing presents massive implications for the way businesses use data, with cloud-based databases ensuring high uptime, frictionless scalability, and simple software integrations. However, achieving this requires setting up cloud databases in the first place, an obstacle that can be incredibly tough and prevent companies from migrating to cloud-based data infrastructure altogether.

Aiven provides an open-source cloud data management platform, allowing users to easily set up cloud databases, access cloud tool integrations, automate data infrastructural management, and control data security within a single platform. The platform integrates directly into open source data services such as Apache Kafka and OpenSearch, supports multi-cloud deployments, and includes built-in compliance, encryption, and end-to-end security features.

Whilst various companies are tackling the difficulties of setting up cloud databases, Aiven has smartly taken more of an all-in-one approach, tackling everything from the building and managing of databases to software integrations, multi-cloud hosting, and security. The company claims that its cloud data solutions can massively reduce the amount of time, money, and resources that businesses must spend to migrate to cloud-based data infrastructure.

Company values

  • We are open 💡 Open to any new idea. Open to inspiration from every colleague and experience. Openly supporting the open source community that helped make us who we are. At Aiven, we don’t just look ahead. We look around. Take it all in, and put ourselves out there. We think sideways, speak up and grow freely. Working in teams. Working with leaders. And leading ourselves. Left, right, forwards, upwards. We open up our industry in every direction.
  • We are owners 💯 Owning our decisions. Owning our mistakes. Owning the places they take us. Whatever we’re doing, we commit to the journey. It’s not always a straightforward path, and we often have to leap without knowing where exactly we’ll land. But that’s what thinking sideways is all about. With other Aiveners beside us, we take responsibility for our actions, and take pride in our achievements.
  • We are courageous 🧑‍🚀 The courage to take on any challenge. The courage to take calculated risks. The courage to drive changes, not resist them. Our future holds great opportunities . So we need to be bold, think sideways, and evolve. And when you’re surrounded by inspiring colleagues, fascinating problems and opportunities left, right and centre, evolution comes naturally.
