LightStep’s mission is to cut through the scale and complexity of today’s software to help organizations stay in control of their systems.
Its first product, LightStep [x]PM, provides an accurate, detailed snapshot of the entire software system at any point in time, enabling organizations to identify bottlenecks and resolve incidents rapidly. [x]PM cuts through the scale and complexity in today’s software systems to help organizations tie system performance to business objectives.
The LightStep founders built global-scale monitoring technologies at Google, including Dapper, an always-on distributed tracing system that analyzes more than 2 billion transactions per second. Now they’re bringing that expertise to LightStep.
LightStep is backed by Redpoint and Sequoia and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
