We’re a small group of engineers based in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a rich history of developing observability tooling by engineers, for engineers. At observIQ we’re laser-focused on developing powerful, high-performance, and simple-to-use tools and platforms.
What we’ve found after years of specific focus on the monitoring space and talking to hundreds of customers is that there’s a gap in the log management space. The growth in log data has been exponential and the tools to monitor logs haven’t kept up with that expansion. Some of the largest organizations in the world are struggling to solve the challenge of shipping terabytes of log data every day, or every hour.
The bottleneck is often at the agent level. We worked hand-in-hand with some of our largest customers to develop a new, high-performance, highly configurable, open source log agent capable of meeting their needs. This is the foundation of observIQ.
Starting a new company is often an unforgettable adventure with unique challenges.
observIQ was born in the middle of 2020, when the launch and new journey started over Zoom, and not at a world-renowned craft brewery in Grand Rapids as we had originally planned. So, more than ever, we are extremely grateful for this hardworking team and excited to deliver disruptive Observability solutions to the IT community.
