Metrist, a Portland-based startup designed to monitor the reliability of cloud services and products from Amazon Web Services, Microsoft’s Azure and others, launched on Tuesday with $5.5 million in funding.

The company was co-founded by CEO Jeff Martens and CTO Ryan Duffield, whose experience in DevOps traces back to roles at PagerDuty, New Relic, Netdata, and Server Density.

Metrist says most digital businesses use more than 100 cloud dependencies to power their products and businesses. The startup says its tech gives organizations real-time visibility into those dependencies so that they can address outages more effectively.

The goal is to keep businesses from having to turn to social media or sites such as Downdetector for information, and to eliminate wait times while vendors update status pages.

Duffield said in a blog post Tuesday that Metrist “uses end-to-end functional testing and in-app monitoring to create unmatched visibility.” The company’s dashboard allows users to see statuses, performance and reliability of any and all of their cloud vendors in one place.

Investors in the seed round include Heavybit, Morado, PagerDuty co-founder Alex Solomon, and StatusPage.io co-founders Scott Klein and Steve Klein.

Metrist employs a distributed team of 12 full-time employees.
