Rookout, a Tel-Aviv-based developer-first observability platform, has secured a $16M Series B funding round led by Fort Ross Ventures.
Existing investors, including TLV Partners, Emerge, Cisco Investments, and new investors LIAN Group, Mighty Capital, and Binder & Partners, also participated. To date, the company has raised around $28M in funding.
Unlike traditional monitoring tools and APMs, which tend to focus on metrics that DevOps engineers and SREs care about on the infrastructure level, Rookout is built from the ground up for developers, who care more about the actual code and business logic of their applications.
“Rookout’s mission is to get to the heart of what developers actually care about,” said Shahar Fogel, CEO of Rookout. “Every engineering organisation today is seeking to optimize velocity. Our solution offers code-level data extraction from any type of cloud-native environment. This funding round will further accelerate our product development towards our vision of developer-first observability.”
Finding data instantly
Led by Shahar Fogel, Rookout is a developer-first observability platform that provides an ability to collect any piece of data, from the deepest levels of live code, on-demand.
The platform empowers engineers to instantly find the data they need and deliver it anywhere to understand and advance their software. With Rookout, software teams save work hours and reduce debugging and logging time by 80% — with zero friction, overhead, or risk.
The platform help engineer solves customer issues 5X faster, improve development velocity, and reduce MTTR (Mean Time To Repair).
“We’ve been impressed with Rookout’s execution of its groundbreaking solution, alongside the rapid trajectory of its growing customer base and significant expansion momentum within the enterprise,” said Sharin Fisher Dibrov, partner at Fort Ross Ventures. “We are coming to the third wave of observability tools which shifts everything further left, and we’re excited to support Rookout’s journey and backing Shahar, Liran, and the team as the category-defining leader in developer-first observability.” Sharin will be joining Rookout’s board with this round.
