Our Story

Having met at Microsoft almost a decade ago, Martin Mao and Rob Skillington reunited at Uber to help the company scale up its infrastructure. There, they experienced massive growth in the volume and complexity of monitoring data being produced and consumed. It became obvious that the open source and commercially available solutions could not keep up with the pace of growth, performance and cost.

The only course of action was to build their own custom solution - M3 - which was developed in open source from day one for the benefit of the community at large. Over the course of three years, Rob and Martin scaled M3 to one of the largest production metrics systems in the world. This provided Uber with comprehensive insight into its infrastructure and applications for engineers, and real time visibility of the overall business for operations teams.

After recognizing that other high growth companies struggled with the same challenges, Martin and Rob founded Chronosphere so they could bring the benefits of M3 to enterprises everywhere while continuing to support the open source community.
