The One Time Hindsight is 2019: A Look Back at Our Year
We’ve had an eventful year here at Grafana Labs. As 2019 comes to a close, here’s a look back.
2. Active installations of Grafana more than doubled, to 482,000.
3. Our team grew from 37 to 105 working in 22 countries (up from 11).
4. We raised $24 million in Series A funding, which will support our vision of building an open, composable observability platform that brings together the three pillars of observability – logs, metrics, and traces – in a single experience, with Grafana at the center.
5. We added three key team members: Douglas Hanna, Chief Operating Officer; Dave Kranowitz, Vice President of Global Sales; and Ryan McKinley, Vice President of Applications.
6. Less than a year after we introduced it, Loki reached GA with v1.0.0.
7. Our team members spoke at 28 events, including a keynote at KubeCon EU and 6 talks at KubeCon NA.
8. We published 177 blog articles highlighting engineering work, offering how-tos, profiling team members, and even showing our workspaces.
9. At PromCon, KubeCon NA, and AWS re:Invent, we introduced sustainable swag in the form of carbon offsets.
Here’s to an equally exciting 2020!
