Our Investment In Sensu

by Ryan McIntyre

We are pleased to announce that we have made our initial investment in Sensu, Inc. Sensu is a modern and cohesive monitoring platform for the enterprise – it can monitor servers, services, application health, or business KPIs, enabling dev and ops teams to keep a vital, real-time view on the health of their infrastructure.

Sensu was originally created to replace an aging Nagios installation that couldn’t keep up with the rapidly evolving demands of a dynamic public-cloud infrastructure, and has been widely adopted due to its backward compatibility with plugins written for legacy monitoring tools Nagios, Icinga, Zabbix, and more. As software continues to devour the world, modern monitoring tools are vital to prevent costly downtime.

Sensu, Inc. fits in our Glue theme and fits in nicely alongside developer and ops oriented infrastructure companies in our portfolio like Pantheon, mLab, SendGrid, Mapbox, and VictorOps.

We were originally connected to Sensu by Nick Stielau, Director of Engineering at Pantheon. As we got to know Sensu, we found that numerous Foundry Group portfolio companies already made use of Sensu in their monitoring infrastructure. We are excited to be working Caleb, Sean, and the rest of team Sensu as they build out their vision for the future of monitoring.
