Operations is harder than most people think. Every day you come in and there are more deployments, more resources, and more microservices to manage.
Environmental complexity is rising and the ticket queue is growing.
Customer expectations are higher than ever. We saw this while operating systems with millions of nodes and millions of customers.
Customers now expect 24x7 availability with no maintenance window, jitter, or downtime.
Manual operations isn't an option anymore. Ticket volumes are too high and staff volume too low.
Every day some new DevOps tool is announced, but they require changing your entire environment when you're already strapped for resources.
We set out to solve this problem
Fix things once and for all
You spend your days staring at dashboards and grinding ticket queues, knowing they will just return tomorrow. Shoreline enables you to automate scanning for known issues and performing mitigations. We've seen this reduce tickets and improve availability by 10x.
Orchestrate across clouds, on premises, virtual machines, and containers
Operational complexity grows with every machine, microservice, and cloud technology you deploy. Shoreline orchestrates across clouds and on premises, providing equivalent service across all platforms. Shoreline integrates with any cli, linux command, or shell and python scripts that you already have. No expensive rewrites needed.
Rock solid foundation
You figure out what you want to get done on a single host. Shoreline handles determining how to run across your fleet, out to millions of nodes, transparently handling failures, performing retries, and minimizing resource utilization. Your entire fleet can be operated like a single host.
Who we are
Shoreline was founded to reduce operational pain. We have experience building and operating mission critical databases, cloud services with millions of hosts, and self tuning feedback control systems. We want to reduce tickets and improve availability by an order of magnitude through automation. We are well funded and based in Redwood City, California and Iasi, Romania.
