About Cloudinary

Are you developing a web or mobile application?
Cloudinary is how you should manage your images.

Cloudinary streamlines your entire image management pipeline - upload, storage, administration, manipulation and delivery. We are here to cover every image-related dev work your service requires.

Our mission is to allow you to concentrate on building your application instead of spending time and money reinventing the wheel by trying to develop your own in-house image handling solution. In addition, you’ll be enjoying the best, most feature-rich online image management solution available.

Our Story

Throughout the years, we’ve experienced the evolution in web development frameworks first hand - from CGI programming in C and Perl in the 90s, through enterprise Java web containers and open source servers, to modern web-dev frameworks.

Nowadays, using frameworks such as Ruby on Rails, Django and others, in conjunction with innovative cloud based solutions, you can quickly build impressive, fast, scalable and affordable web applications you could have only dreamed of in the past.

However, we still found ourselves spending considerable R&D time managing our services’ images. We never managed to free enough time to perfect our image management solutions.

We’ve decided to make the time and build a service that would offer an end-to-end solution to an application’s entire image-related needs, by developers to developers. Exactly as we’ve always envisioned it.

This is how Cloudinary was born.

Cloudinary was founded in 2011 by a group of high-tech veterans who have worked on a huge variety of web projects during the past two decades and got tired of implementing the same image management solutions over and over again.

Today, Cloudinary is the market leader in providing a comprehensive cloud-based image management solution. Cloudinary is being used by thousands of web and mobile application developers all around the world, ranging from small startups to large enterprises.
