Mitchell Hashimoto and Armon Dadgar, HashiCorp’s co-founders, met at the University of Washington in 2008, where they worked on a research project together — an effort to make the groundbreaking public cloud technologies then being developed by Amazon and Microsoft available to scientists.
After graduating, they both moved to San Francisco. There — recognizing early on the impact this technology was poised to have on the world — Mitchell founded HashiCorp, with Armon joining him as a co-founder the next year.
As cloud adoption expanded, they recognized that organizations would eventually need to adopt multiple clouds, and would consequently require a consistent and reliable set of automation tools to seamlessly deploy and connect their applications to any combination of multiple cloud and on-premises environments.
