Our vision is to turn the world’s business data into information. Our mission is to become the market leader in observability.

FoundingObserve was founded and incubated by Sutter Hill Ventures at their Palo Alto office. Our founders came from companies that specialized in working with vast quantities of data – Snowflake, Splunk and Wavefront.
Early DaysThe product vision of building one Observability product, with one language, one consistent user interface and all the data in one central Snowflake database was set. Customer pain was squarely in the world of logs and metrics, distributed tracing was still in a state of flux.
Company LaunchObserve came out of stealth and was unveiled to the world on October 7th 2020. Our first commercial contract – for $1500 from Golden West Telecommunications – was signed just one month earlier.
PresentObserve introduces The Observability Cloud – a single product that enables engineers to troubleshoot distributed applications 3x faster, at one third the cost. Observe scales beyond 1 PB / day of data for a single customer with sub-second latency and has over 60 customers including Capital One, Topgolf and F5 Networks.
Jacob Leverich, Jonathan Trevor, Philipp Unterbrunner, Jon Watte and Mike Speiser talk about Observe’s approach to Observability.
