The Morpheus Story

As the first and only truly infrastructure-agnostic cloud application management platform on the market, Morpheus was built to solve problems nobody was adequately solving.

Morpheus was founded inside of Bertram Capital, a San Mateo-based private equity firm with more than $1 Billion in committed capital that targets control investments in lower, to middle-market companies. Bertram Capital developed a world-class team to rapidly implement IT solutions to fuel the growth of their portfolio companies. This group of more than 25 software developers and internet marketing experts became the core of Bertram Labs. The solutions that were developed found applicability across the portfolio. Demand for these initial solutions and others increased and Bertram Labs began building tools to increase the team’s productivity.

As the team became more prolific in their development activities it became clear that simple and powerful cloud application management was impossible with current offerings. While DevOps was growing in popularity at smaller companies, large enterprises didn't have the capabilities to utilize agile DevOps tools and strategies. So, Bertram Labs created the solution – initially for their own needs but more presently for the broader market.

Enter Morpheus Data

While Morpheus started by focusing on building a comprehensive tool to solve problems exclusively for Bertram Capital portfolio companies, the platform was so useful it quickly gathered steam independently until it grew to become what it is today, a stand-alone company serving a quickly growing client base.

Morpheus offers today's tech leaders capabilities they never thought possible: instant one-click application provisioning, fast and simple database management, easy workload migration, automatic monitoring, logging and backups, dynamic admin management, and much more. These features serve to help eliminate Shadow IT, unlock cloud portability and greatly simplify and secure the DevOps function. Morpheus is the most comprehensive DevOps platform in the market today.
