Wavefront adds Bill Coughran to its Board along with raising $11.5m in Series A investment led by Sequoia

– USA, CA – Wavefront, to help software-based companies thrive in the age of big data and maintain high performance at scale, announces the launch of its powerful data analytics platform. It allows users to visualize and query a wide range of metrics, including computing load and performance data. Across every layer of the enterprise, Wavefront unifies and processes millions of data points per second, delivering insights at the speed of thought.
Like a 21st-century control room, the Wavefront platform helps enterprises optimize digital services and eradicate software failures. Wavefront is a query engine, a language, and a hosted platform serving everyone from small-scale startups to massive organizations with complex, hybrid, and cloud infrastructure.

As digital companies grow, they encounter an accelerating stream of information from servers, clouds, and applications that can quickly overwhelm. Wavefront offers the user the ability to harness big data with a powerful analytics language, turning suspected data set connections into confirmed incidents, reducing false alarms, and avoiding degradation. The query language is intuitive, easy to learn, and empowers the user to perform complex correlations, loading millions of points and computing on them in a second. Dashboards and key charts promote collaboration and are easily shareable across the organization.

The platform also offers unprecedented precision of analysis. Dips and spikes in data can be filtered by their shape over time, allowing complex patterns of behavior to surface. Data is kept at full resolution for years and never down-sampled, allowing precise anomaly detection and long-term trend analysis.

“The basic trending and aggregation functionality that most analytics platforms have been offering don’t help you manage a modern, dynamic stack — much less offer real-time insight,” said CTO and Founder Dev Nag. “Wavefront offers a single pane of glass view into all of their data points, all of the time. Like a magnet pulling needles from a haystack, Wavefront allows the user to identify outliers in a jumble of noise to track events, detect anomalies, alert on them, and pinpoint their causes. With improved insight, companies can dramatically improve productivity and reliability, resulting in superior customer service.”

“In the previous decade, the engineering team at Google faced operational challenges driven by growing complexity,” said Bill Coughran, Sequoia partner and former Google SVP of Engineering. “Today a whole new generation of companies are operating at scale and running into these same issues. At Google, we needed to build our own solution. Now companies can just use Wavefront.”

Wavefront has raised $20.5 million to date from Sutter Hill Ventures, Sequoia Capital, and the Webb Investment Network. Bill Coughran from Sequoia Capital joined Sam Pullara from Sutter Hill Ventures on the board as part of their Series A investment.
