Librato Silverline is an application resource monitoring and management service that helps DevOps and Operations teams monitor and manage the resource consumption of their apps for troubleshooting, automated handling of unexpected situations, performance and availability management, capacity planning, and server utilization improvement. The Silverline API provides access to all of the Silverline monitoring and management functions and all of the data stored within the service.
Librato hits the sweet spot for late adopters. Developers that are not willing to host their systems in the cloud, but need to implement reliable, automatic scaling should find Librato to be a realistic way forward. It allows for existing applications to be wrapped in “containers” and “templates” which transform them into monitored processes that produce performance metrics. Now with the Librato APIs, developers can now fully manage their process configuration set programatically. This company makes a serious offering to the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) space with technology driven on an excellent strategy and backed by 12 million in funding.
