Shaping the future of computers

Blade was born in 2015 with an ambitious vision: create a computer free of hardware constraints. From desktops to smartphones, technology attempts to give users more and more power while making devices smaller, resulting in a limited lifespan. Facing this technological and ecological disaster, Blade's solution was to transfer all the processing power in data centers, and take advantage of high-speed internet to end obsolescence. That's how Shadow was born. After raising more than €60 million from private investors in 2 years, Blade officially launched Shadow in France in November 2017. In 2018, the international development started in the USA and Europe. In September, Blade had over 150 employees and two offices in Paris and Palo Alto (California).

Driven by technology

2 intense years of research led to Shadow's success. From servers hosting high-end computer components, to homemade encoding software and decoding information, Shadow is the result of a unique development, mixing a number of talents. Our team accepted the impossible challenge of providing a cloud computing experience equal or better than the one you get on a high-end local machine. But the work doesn't stop there. In 2018 and beyond, Shadow will see many improvements and innovations to perfect its features and overall experience.
