Rewriting the rules of infrastructure monitoring

Back in 2013, a significant percentage of cloud-based transactions weren’t going through at the company where Costa Tsaousis was COO, massively affecting the performance of their business.

To try and uncover the cause, Costa and his team tried all the monitoring tools then available, to no avail. Not one could even come closer to pinpointing the issue. At the time they couldn’t believe that monitoring systems provided so few metrics and with such low resolution, scaled so badly, and cost so much to run.

In frustration, Costas started to build his own tool. From the ground up.
