Friend Software Corporation

Who are we?

Friend Software was founded in 2014 in Norway, concerned with both decentralised and enterprise network technology. We have customers and partners all over the world who see the need for flexibility in cloud solutions.

What do we do?

We offer you FriendUP - the internet OS - a cloud infrastructure technology (IaaS) with a (DaaS) Chrome OS like desktop environment and Android/iOS like smartphone environment (app). With this technology, you can integrate and consume your cloud services with more opportunities for customisation and mobility, at a low price point. FriendUP comes with several powerful features, like customised cloud storage, video conferencing, application access (Windows or web apps), user access and authentication and much more.

Why should you care?

Resources and services are increasingly fragmenting across the internet. FriendUP is your pivotal point where you access your cloud services on any device, for office work, integration and even entertainment - all with a single sign on. Friend brings in the freedom of open source, while offering professional technical support and know-how. With Friend, you can break free from silos and build your own cloud that is perfectly adapted to your needs.


Friend Software Labs was founded in Stavanger, Norway in March 2014 with the vision of building and distributing the Friend Unifying Platform, FriendUP. After having developed the prototype and initial documentation, the company was furthered by funding provided by a combination of government grant programs and private investors.

By the summer of 2014, the company moved its primary offices to Oslo, whilst keeping a local presence in Stavanger. The Oslo offices were established to gain access to the vibrant technology community in the capital of Norway as well as to expand the community of developers established in Stavanger to Oslo and abroad.

Today, Friend Software Labs is a fast paced, ambitious and rapidly growing young company, employing people both in Norway and abroad.
