Business profile: Stackdriver is the provider of intelligent management for cloud-powered applications, based in Boston and backed by Bain Capital Ventures and Flybridge Capital Partners. Since its inception in 2012, Stackdriver has focused on helping cloud-powered companies address performance bottlenecks before they impact customers while reducing the burden associated with patchwork monitoring solutions.
Stackdriver was founded on the belief that cloud hosting isn’t the future, it’s the present, and that monitoring needs to follow suit. Our founders, a pair of VMware alumni, experienced firsthand how difficult it is to monitor Amazon Web Services and other cloud environments.
In addition to the founders, Stackdriver is full of engineers who had to cobble together bits and pieces of existing monitoring products to create a Frankenstein’s monster capable of monitoring their cloud environments (but terrified of fire). The challenge of building a product that does full-stack cloud-native monitoring was too much to pass up, considering how many of them had banged their heads on walls trying to replicate the experience.
We believe strongly that DevOps is here to stay, and that traditional IT monitoring solutions don’t work in the cloud. AWS made Software-as-a-Service easy and accessible; Stackdriver was founded to make Monitoring-as-a-Service just as accessible.
