      How we see the world of Internet & Cloud Operations

      Unified Tools

      Too many separate tools

      We hate having dozens of tools to do our jobs, especially when none talk to each other, nor share data, nor have any unified interface. We prefer to do the heavy work to integrate it all, for unity and ease of use, but also to unlock the power this brings when you connect things.

      Model All the Things

      Models at the Core

      Models are hard to do right, but when they work and model reality, they unlock tremendous power and flexibility.

      Manage Everything

      Don't leave the customer in the lurch

      We hate systems that don't do all the core things we need, i.e. they do 20% of what we need. This is like building half a house because you don't do bedrooms, or washing half a car. In the end, the buck stops here as we don't expect any other system or team can do more, so if don't or can't do it, then who ?

      Assume Chaos at all Times

      By and For Experts

      Service the Ops Professional

      Most of us have decades of experience in large-scale operations across many industries and technologies, so we are building professional tools for experienced teams. At the same time, we want to make them easy to use, especially for people new to Ops, Clouds, and advanced tools.

      Trust but Verify

      Always Cross-Check

      We never know what is true as we expect chaos, dynamics, and manual changes everywhere, all the time. So we cross-check against models, other data, best-practices, and on-server facts, all the time.
