The Leading Observability Pipeline Company Recognized in 2021 Cool Vendors in Monitoring and Observability Report

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14, 2021— Cribl, the leading Observability Pipeline company, today announced today it has been named a Cool Vendor in Monitoring and Observability by Gartner. The report evaluates new, interesting, and innovative vendors, products, and services to help I&O leaders accelerate business velocity.

“We are honored to be named a ‘Gartner Cool Vendor’, as we believe this is a huge testament to all of the work our outstanding team has accomplished,” said Clint Sharp, co-founder and CEO of Cribl. “Since founding the company in 2017, we have hit numerous aggressive milestones, increasing our customer base by 300% year-over-year and tripling the size of our team. This momentum is a clear indication that we are solving a fundamental problem, as companies continue to collect and process massive amounts of telemetry data. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve for the rest of 2021 and beyond.”

Cribl is taking an open approach to the flow of data in the enterprise. In its flagship product, LogStream, Cribl has invented an entirely new, vendor-agnostic way to parse and route any type of event data that flows through corporate IT systems. In doing so, Cribl’s LogStream has not only created an observability pipeline that offers unparalleled flexibility and control across IT systems — it gives companies the freedom to choose their own analytics tools and storage destinations based on where the data has the most value. Customers can choose from a diverse range of best-of-breed data solutions without fear of vendor lock-in, complementing tools such as Splunk, Elastic, Datadog, and Exabeam.
