When Rabah shared his idea with Younes and Imed, they were immediately excited about the potential of this platform.
They saw the growing demand for edge computing and knew that a solution like this could be transformative for businesses. So, the three friends decided to leave their corporate jobs and focus on building the Namla platform. They knew it would be a lot of hard work, but they were determined to make it a success.
They named their company Namla, which is the Arabic word for ant, a tiny creature that can lift up to 5000 times its own body weight. The name was chosen as an analogy to the edge, which is a powerful and resilient force that can be leveraged to drive innovation and growth.
Inspired by the determination and strength of ants, the team set out to build a platform that would make it easy for developers and network administrators to deploy and manage applications at the edge. They leveraged the power of Kubernetes and SD-WAN based networking technologies to create a solution that was both powerful and easy to use.
