"Cyber week has been extremely boring for us. Zero incidents and we didn’t have to operate a huge Cassandra cluster this year. We sat there and let Lightstep do its work. 100% delivered and not a single hiccup, and we are very happy about it."


Heinrich Hartmann, Principal Software Engineer

Built for OpenTelemetry (and everything else)
