Cribl said on Aug. 25 it raised $200 million in a Series C round of funding, bringing total funding to date for the vendor to $254 million.
Based in San Francisco, Cribl develops data pipeline technology that provides data observability to organizations to better understand and organize data. The vendor last updated its flagship platform on June 2 with the general availability of LogStream 3.0.
LogStream acts as a data router in that it processes the data it receives from the source in order to help provides more context and structure, before it is forwarded to a destination for analytics or business intelligence.
In this Q&A, Clint Sharp, co-founder and CEO of Cribl, details the challenges and opportunities for data observability and where the vendor is headed next.
