HashiCorp is a software company[2] with a freemium business model based in San Francisco, California. HashiCorp provides open-source tools and commercial products that enable developers, operators and security professionals to provision, secure, run and connect cloud-computing infrastructure.[3] It was founded in 2012 by Mitchell Hashimoto and Armon Dadgar.[4][5]

HashiCorp is headquartered in San Francisco, but their employees are distributed across the United States, Canada, Australia, India, and Europe. HashiCorp offers both open-source and proprietary products.[6]

History[edit]

On 29 November 2021, HashiCorp set terms for its IPO at 15.3 million shares at $68-$72 at a valuation of $13 billion.[7]

HashiCorp considers their 1,500 workers to be remote workers first rather than coming into an office on a full time basis.[8]

Open-source tools[edit]

HashiCorp was founded by Mitchell Hashimoto and Armon Dadgar

HashiCorp provides a suite of open-source tools intended to support the development and deployment of large-scale service-oriented software installations. Each tool is aimed at specific stages in the life cycle of a software application, with a focus on automation. Many have a plugin-oriented architecture in order to provide integration with third-party technologies and services.[9] Additional proprietary features for some of these tools are offered commercially and are aimed at enterprise customers.[10]

The main product line consists of the following tools:[3][9]

Security issue[edit]

Around April 2021, a supply chain attack using code auditing tool codecov allowed hackers limited access to HashiCorp's customers networks.[24] As a result private credentials were leaked. HashiCorp revoked a private signing key and asked its customers to use a new rotated key.
