San Francisco-based Pixie Labs has emerged from stealth with its first product, Pixie. The company, founded by Google AI and Apple Siri engineers, also announced $9.15 million in Series A funding led by Benchmark with participation from GV.
Pixie is claimed to reduce the complexity and cost for developers to observe and troubleshoot their application’s performance.
With Pixie, developers don’t need to change code, manually set up ad hoc dashboards or compromise on how much performance data they can observe.
Early access customers range from early-stage startups to internet-scale streaming content teams who are all already running Pixie in their production Kubernetes environments.
As Pixie runs entirely inside a developer’s own Kubernetes platform, development teams are extending their in-house or managed SaaS monitoring footprints to get instant and automatic visibility inside their very own production environments.
The product’s public beta starts today and will be showcased at Pixie Demo Hour on October 8.
