Helio is a Swiss technology startup that builds and provides a technology platform & software that allows for intelligent workload scheduling.

It can connect to any data centre with available computing resources and deploy any workload to almost anywhere in the world. Of course, this is not always feasible or efficient. Therefore, the Helio platform includes various measures to make intelligent decisions about which workload should be placed onto which hardware at which time to achieve optimal efficiency.
