Robin Systems is an enterprise containerization software company offering container-based computing and storage management software. Founded in 2013, Robin addresses the growing trend toward use of containers – stand-alone lightweight packages that provide an isolated environment for software applications[1] – by enabling IT organizations to utilize commodity hardware as an agile, elastic, and high-performance operating platform for mission-critical enterprise applications, such as databases and Big Data.[2]

Awards received by Robin in 2016 include being named a winner of the 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award[3] and being named a Stevie Award winner by the American Business Awards.[4]


Robin Systems was founded in 2013 by Krishna Yeddanapudi.[5] As CTO, Krishna built the company and the product for the first 3 years. Silicon Valley entrepreneur Rajeev Madhavan was an early angel investor in Robin and assumed the role of chairman.[6]
