Maximum reliability and performance.

The Basics

What is Elixir?

Elixir is built upon Erlang, a language developed by Ericsson in the mid-1980s for telecom switches. Today it is estimated that 90% of all Internet traffic goes through routers and switches controlled by Erlang.

Elixir takes a great language and makes it even greater. With its elegant syntax, easy-to-use package manager, and powerful macro support, a developer can build world-class applications in a fraction of the time.

Once you start using Elixir, its hard to go back.

Ridiculous Performance

One server. Two million users.

Products like WhatsApp have seen incredible success with Erlang and Elixir, to the point of managing two million active users per server. Message passing is what it does best. Elixir is faster and more concurrent than almost every language in the industry.

Whether you're a small startup or a Fortune 100, your customers can always have a quick, responsive experience.

Amazing Reliability

99.9999999% Uptime. No, really.

The Elixir/Erlang ecosystem is the first to ever achieve "nine nines" of application uptime. That's 31.56 milliseconds per year. If you blinked you'd miss it, literally.

With robust process monitoring and isolation, failing components are quietly restarted without bringing down the whole system. And your customers are none the wiser.
