Features loved by our customers

Built with you in mind

Automate and simplify your workflow

Customize balenaCloud so that it works how you want it to by using our powerful API and SDKs

“We can scale much better and handle multiple devices instead of treating them individually - we don’t have to update the devices one by one. Moreover, the API is quite powerful and helps us automate quite a bit of our work. There’s no service we’re aware of that’s comparable."

Flavia Paganelli

Co-founder and Director of Engineering, 30MHz

Manage your fleet remotely

Save on engineering time by remotely updating your software, to as many devices as you have, through the balenaCloud dashboard.

“Being able to do software related tasks remotely, and managing and deploying to a large installed base are definitely the killer features of balena. This enables a very fast update cycle and therefore is a booster for the overall development speed of our services.”

Stefan Rauch

Software Engineer, Bosch

Proven in the field for over 10 years

Our solution to the challenge of IoT management has been tested in the field on our customer devices, we love hearing your feedback as we grow and develop our products.

"With balena, there’s a level of confidence that they’re making the right decisions and taking the right path in how they communicate and grow their platform. We’re closely aligned and we trust their approach and people.”

World class customer support

We do support a bit differently at balena: the same engineers who build balena day-in and day-out are the same people working to help you succeed on our support channels.

“I really love that balena’s support is well trained and technical. The first thing I do is reach out to technical support because I know they are going to figure it out. It really feels like balena is a collaborative partner in making our experience successful”
