About Rely.io

🚀 Our mission is to simplify the reliability journey for cloud native companies.

Rely’s goal is to empower cloud native companies to foster a positive culture of reliability and ownership, make informed decisions to enhance reliability, quality and performance, and ultimately achieve business-driven reliability.
