Grafana Labs Open Source
Open Source is at the heart of what we do at Grafana Labs. We believe building software in the open, with permissive licenses and thriving communities, helps leave the world a little better than we found it.
The company started with our flagship open source project, Grafana. Since then we have gone on to launch multiple open source projects ourselves, such as Metrictank and Loki, and also contribute to successful projects in this space, such as Graphite and Prometheus.
If you are interested in working on open source projects, we are always hiring! If on the other hand you would like to get involved and contribute to any of these projects, dive right in! Try filing a new issue or commenting on an existing one, that is always a good place to start.

Graphite is an open source monitoring system first developed by Chris Davis at Orbitz in 2006, and has since been adopted by various other contributors.
Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate.
Metrictank is a multi-tenant timeseries engine for Graphite and friends developed by Grafana Labs. Metrictank powers Grafana Cloud’s Hosted Graphite platform.
