SignalFx Launches its Advanced Monitoring Platform

SignalFx, a start-up based in San Mateo, California, emerged from stealth-mode and launched its SaaS-based monitoring platform for modern applications.

The company's "SignalFlow" streaming and historical analytics technology is designed to scale to provide an interactive, system-wide view of applications and infrastructure. SignalFx aims to detect aggregate patterns and anomalies across their distributed applications in real-time.

SignalFx also announced $28.5 million in total funding from top tier Silicon Valley investors Andreessen Horowitz and Charles River Ventures.

“Today’s launch of SignalFx is just the beginning of our team’s work to reinvent monitoring for modern applications,” said Phillip Liu, Founder and CTO of SignalFx. “An analytics-based approach to monitoring is essential for modern applications—with SignalFx and SignalFlow technology, our customers can focus their efforts on interpreting operational metrics, discovering key patterns, and communicating insights with one another rather than building and supporting an undifferentiated metrics infrastructure. We plan to invest aggressively in our monitoring platform so that our customers can deliver well-built, reliably performing, rapidly improving applications time and time again.”
