About

Our mission at Coiled is to increase access to scalable computing. We do this in three ways:

  1. Coiled Cloud, managed one-click Dask deployments for everyone
  2. Coiled Enterprise, support and training for scalable Python and Dask
  3. Community outreach, with continued support of open source software

Coiled is led by open source community maintainers located around the globe.
