Grafana Labs develops the popular Grafana open-source data visualization and analytics platform for building data dashboards and visualizations for metric, log and trace data generated by IT infrastructure, networks, cybersecurity tools and other systems. The analytics and visualizations are used by IT and AppDev managers to monitor IT system performance and track users and events.

Grafana Labs, founded in 2014 and based in New York City, raised $220 million in a Series C round of funding in August that put the startup’s valuation at $3 billion.
