Sensu, a provider of open-source software for organizations to monitor critical applications and other enterprise infrastructure, raised $10m in Series A financing.
The round was led by Battery Ventures with participation from existing investor Foundry Group. As part of the financing, Battery General Partner Dharmesh Thakker is joining Sensu’s board.
The company will use the funds to grow sales and marketing operations, fund product development, and continue expanding the community of open-source developers contributing to its technology.
Founded in 2017 and led by Caleb Hailey, CEO, Sensu provides open-source software that enables organizations to monitor critical applications and other enterprise infrastructure. The company maintains the free and open source Sensu Core framework as well as the commercially-supported Sensu Enterprise, which enhances the open source framework with features to simplify operations, governance, multi-datacenter support for companies to run monitoring at scale.
Sensu currently operates as a fully distributed team, with 20 employees in the United States and Canada, and will soon open their first office in Portland, Oregon.
