Founded by Nishant Modak and Piyush Verma, Last9 is an operational intelligence platform for software reliability and helps engineering and DevOps teams track, measure, and improve software reliability and SRE.

The platform builds Google Maps and Search equivalents for microservices. A quick plug-in of their system allows Last9 to build a ‘Knowledge Graph’ for the microservices to take a distinct view of software architecture or zoom in to understand the most minute data.

Nishant Modak, Founder and CEO of Last9, said, ” Having been software reliability engineers (SREs) for over a decade, this platform is born out of our struggles. What firefighters are to civil engineering, DevOps, and site reliability engineers (SREs) are to software engineering. The world of microservices needs to have sprinklers and smoke detectors.”

“Last9 provides engineering teams with the control room and levers to manage their microservice environments, significantly reducing alert fatigue and MTTD,” he further said.

Harshjit Sethi, Managing Director of Sequoia India, said, “Last9’s value proposition is simple and very powerful. The cloud had led to an explosion of infrastructure data, which had made an engineer’s job of understanding dependencies to pinpoint a root cause much harder. Last9’s secret sauce of building a map of the company’s architecture allowing companies to do this quickly had seen strong reception from marquee customers. Nishant and Piyush are among the strongest SREs in their region, and they were excited to double down on their partnership with them and the Last9 team.”
