The Antsle Story

What started with an idea in the summer of 2015, has developed into more than just a Private Cloud Server for developers. Today, geeks like us from around the world are using Antsle Private Cloud Servers to host their data from their home/offices. With it, they were able to outsmart corporate giants like AWS or DigitalOcean! We're very happy to do our part in creating that story - building an army of ants that takes pride in their work and takes back control over their data. 

Why Ants(le)? ants are social creatures. One ant by itself cannot accomplish much, but in large numbers they are extremely effective! They are also among the strongest animals out there respective to size and body weight. Just like an ant, Antsle has a small foot print but it surely packs a punch!

What We Do

Antsle was designed for developers & geeks like us, looking for a more affordable and private alternative to public hosting. Instead of renting, Antsle allows you to own both hardware & software as an integrated solution. Our focus is to create a product that is easy to use, keeps data under your control, and saves you money.

Please browse around and familiarize yourself with what Antsle can do and how it can fit into your development/production environment!
