Application performance and analytics solution provider Tracelytics has just closed a seed round of $600,000 from Battery Ventures, Flybridge Capital Partners, Google Ventures, and several prominent angel investors. The Tracelytics solution, currently in a limited release, is a SaaS-based application performance management (APM) tool that’s used to provide visibility into complex, distributed Web applications written in PHP, Ruby or Python.
As any startup can tell you, ensuring that your Web applications stay up and running is critical, but it’s not an easy task. It can also be a big, expensive time suck, especially when many of the current siloed solutions don’t give you the full view of what’s going on. Tracelytics attempts to make that process easier by handling the data collection across layers and machines, then presents it to you in an easy-to-read dashboard interface, so you can see what’s going on, where and why.
The service provides end-to-end tracing, data filtering, machine-level metrics and error reporting. At present, it works on Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat and CentOS, and supports the HTTP and Thrift protocols.
The Providence, Rhode Island-based company was founded in June 2010 by Spiros Eliopoulos, Dan Kuebrich and Chris Erway. Eliopoulos and Kuebrich previously worked together at Amie Street, while Erway was previously at IBM.
The company is currently offering discounted pricing to early users via its website.
