Hello, world

After three months of beta testing, we're ready to launch our alerting and on-call rotation service. This blog will serve as a chronicle of some of our work and perhaps a place to share some stories from time to time.

Why another alerting service?

Aren't there already some products that do this?

First, as systems engineers, we're building the service we would enjoy using ourselves. Receiving alerts and going on-call don't have to be unpleasant or inhumane. We intend to improve the service each day.

Second, as owners of our own infrastructure, we're building what we need to ensure we stay on top of issues and remain accountable for problems that arise. Any error raised by our service flows into our service: we eat our own dogfood.

Last, we wanted to build a self-funded venture, accountable only to our customers, not to the fads or whims of some outside influencers. We'll try not to let you down.

We hope you like our service, and we look forward to working with you. Don't hesitate to say hi!
