ABOUT THE COMPANY
The rise of cloud technologies and microservices has enabled enterprises to cut down the time it takes to delight users with their applications and services. The demand for new applications is hitting remarkable scale as entire industries get revolutionized with new use-cases.
However, delivering modern applications and services in a reliable, secure and performant way remains a monumental challenge especially when using modern abstractions such as Kubernetes and Docker containers. Distributed applications are seen as a network of interconnected services where the complexity has shifted to the interplay between various services. They also tend to be polyglot (written using many languages and frameworks) which adds to the chaos and operational challenges.
Netsil is addressing these challenges by providing unprecedented and out-of-the-box visibility into modern distributed applications. We are committed to making the lives of DevOps and SRE teams drastically easier by speeding up their workflows for incidence response, deploy management, capacity planning, service-level objective management and distributed application performance management.
Netsil originated as a collaboration between researchers and industry practitioners. We are a multidisciplinary team with extensive research and operational experience in web-scale applications, network stream processing, declarative languages and large scale data analytics.
