Beyond the IPO Hype – Why we decided to become a private company again

An IPO and a billion dollar valuation sounds like your company made it. Trust me, building a company from scratch and eventually selling it for a good deal of money, feels great. However, it also changes the game completely. We became a public company and after successfully growing and evolving our vision for how we could best continue to reshape the future of application performance, we decided to come full-circle… read more

SOA or microservices? (It doesn’t matter a pair of fetid dingo’s kidneys)

It doesn’t matter a pair of fetid dingo’s kidneys This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better… read more

The Right Way to UXP Evolution: Your Way

The simpler a UI is, the harder it is to design it. This post is about ruxit’s latest UI improvements and the philosophy that drives them. Being agile is about more than just pushing out bi-weekly releases and attending 15-minute daily meetings. Agile is about continuous incremental improvements. It’s about dropping good features in favor of great features. Being agile is an attitude. In fact, it’s our attitude, and a… read more

Why we built Ruxit

By now, you’re probably wondering why we built ruxit in the first place. After all, there are lots of monitoring products out there, from free to high-end enterprise. Why build a new one? We believe that application development and operations have changed a lot—continuous Deployment, DevOps … you know the drill—but monitoring still looks the same. Especially if you are a startup or leading-edge company using Cloud services, you might feel that application monitoring tools just don’t fit your requirements. There might be lot of reasons, but these are the ones we think are the most striking. Cloud Natives companies need different monitoring Cloud Natives? Who are they? These are companies that run their applications heavily relying on cloud services provided by Amazon and other vendors as well using Third Party Services wherever they seem them fit. They want the best tool for the job and they want it SaaS based. They favor fast value over the ability to customize to any possible scenarios. That’s why we focus on the 80 percent of functionality that people really need to get the job done, delivering it in a streamlined and easy-to-understand way. No unnecessary stuff here. Most tools assume you have time. Every monitoring tool claims it can be installed in minutes, it’s easy to configure and it’s extendable with plug-ins. But let’s face it: you’ll still have to modify some startup scripts and install plug-ins. With ruxit, you install one time and then you’re done forever. That’s right, forever. Just execute a single wget command and download the shell script and we’ll make the magic happen. You will never have to install any further plug-ins. read more
