Across the world, start-ups are leveraging the power of Cloud to build and deliver innovative solutions for their market segment and target customers. However, in the face of prevailing macroeconomic conditions, it is tough for start-ups to devise and implement the right technology stack for their growth. This is primarily because of the significant engineering and human talent pool required to undertake and implement it.
Addressing this challenge is a new developer tools start-up, Amnic, founded by experienced entrepreneurs and ex-Ola leaders, Ankit Bhati, Sathya Nagarajan and Nimish Joshi in 2021. Amnic enables start-ups to modernize their applications through a unified operating platform for engineering teams to enable them to take their code to the cloud seamlessly.
Amnic derives its name from ‘amniotic fluid’ – a protective liquid that surrounds the unborn baby during pregnancy. Amnic’s founders identified a felt need within the start-up industry – to make cloud adoption and migration seamless, enhance developer productivity and empower start-ups at any stage of their lifecycle to make the best use of the cloud – all built on a universally adopted open-source technology.
Just like Legos, Amnic packages cloud services that would be most beneficial for start-ups and offers them as a simple software. Amnic uses AWS managed services like Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to enable start-ups to take advantage of all the performance, scale, reliability, and availability of AWS infrastructure. Additionally, they use AWS services such as Amazon ECR (Elastic Container Registry), AWS Secrets Manager, Amazon OpenSearch, as well as other AWS services for observability and cloud security.
Amnic’s solutions leverage AWS as their technology backbone. This helps them to enable start-ups to focus on building their product and growing business, without investing in and deploying resources to build and scale the infrastructure stack on the cloud. For Amnic’s customers, this has translated into enhancing their developer productivity by upto 25% and reduction in costs by upto 20%. This approach helps start-ups move to the cloud, go-to-market and innovate faster. As start-ups continue to focus on emerging technologies like machine learning and serverless technology, Amnic plans to work with AWS and expand their portfolio to include more products.
Recently, Amnic also participated in AWS’s SaaS mentorship program that was held in-person in USA. This program was aimed at providing the selected early-stage SaaS startups insights on topics such as product market fit, go-to-market strategies, team building, marketing opportunities, among others, to build and scale in the US market.
