Loft Labs, founded in 2019, develops Loft, which is technology to let businesses scale self-service access to Kubernetes from 10 to 10,000 engineers. The company has created several open-source projects to support this mission, including DevSpace, vcluster, jsPolicy and kiosk. Loft ties these open-source projects together into a single Kubernetes platform that can be used to offer engineers secure and unimpeded access to cloud resources and help ease the switch toward cloud-native engineering practices. Loft provides enterprise-grade cluster access and management, secure multitenancy, collaboration and cost optimization.
Loft Labs in September 2021 raised $4.6 million in seed funding.
