Valued at $1.6 billion, the observability platform continues to outpace the market with an eye on profitability

NEW YORK – March 6, 2024 Chronosphere, the leading cloud native observability platform, had another record-setting year, raising $120 million in Series C funding at a $1.6 billion valuation since February 2023. The company also enhanced its product capabilities with its first-ever acquisition of observability pipeline solution Calyptia, a new partnership and integration with CrowdStrike, and a new user experience for developers and engineering teams.

With cloud native adoption on the rise, the demand for Chronosphere’s one-stop observability solution has gained increased traction among top brands, adding customers in the fields of healthcare, fintech, and AI. Observability enables quicker and more decisive actions, reduces customer-facing incidents, and accelerates release velocity, ultimately resulting in better business outcomes.

“The need for efficient and effective observability has increased significantly with the rise in outages and the millions being wasted on lost developer productivity,” said Martin Mao, CEO and Co-Founder, Chronosphere. “Over the past year, we’ve added new logging capabilities to our platform, added a new observability pipeline with the Calyptia acquisition, and expanded the situational awareness of engineers with Lens. The goal continues to be finding ways to help customers gain insights from their observability data in order to solve problems more quickly and easily, while still reducing costs.”

For Chronosphere, the past year has been filled with many company and product milestones, including:
