Sysdig Provides Quby with Monitoring and Security for Mesos Marathon and Java Applications


Eases the pain of cloud migration and reduces effort 400%

, the cloud-native intelligence company, today announced
that Quby,
the Amsterdam-based developer of smart home solutions and maker of smart
thermostat and service platform ‘Toon,' has adopted Sysdig to help its
DevOps and DevSecOps teams keep pace with the company's rapid growth.
Quby selected Sysdig after moving to Amazon Web Services (AWS) with a
Docker-based cloud orchestrated by Mesos Marathon. Working with Sysdig,
Quby has simplified its application-level visibility and security in the
cloud, reducing the amount of time spent manually managing its
monitoring infrastructure. Quby uses both Sysdig
and Sysdig
, two solutions within the Sysdig Cloud-Native Intelligence

Companies are turning to Sysdig as they move to the cloud and realize
the need for a new way to capture the performance and security data
essential to effectively running business-critical applications. Sysdig
technology unlocks a completely new source of data, enabling Sysdig to
provide the deepest visibility into containers and microservices. Sysdig
has the only unified platform to offer security, monitoring,
troubleshooting, and forensics for containers and microservices.

"Keeping up with demand spawned our move to the cloud. Our customer
count was at 300,000, while our datacenter infrastructure was designed
to support a fraction of that. Running our own data centers was becoming
a bigger issue with each new customer added and it was holding us back,"
said Juan Morales, DevOps engineer at Quby. "After we moved our
applications to the cloud, we quickly realized that in order to optimize
our environment, we needed to change the way we monitored and secured
our applications. Monitoring at Quby used to be a two-person job. Now it
takes 15 minutes maybe once a month to keep Sysdig updated. We run a
container on the host and it's done. We get monitoring and security at
the container level, at the host level, and at the application level all
from a low-resource, single point of instrumentation. This gives us
access to far more data than we would get with other approaches."

Benefits from the adoption of Sysdig:

  • Labor and cost savings
    Since adopting Sysdig, Quby
    has reduced its monitoring system administration by 400%.
  • Out of the box deep Java application visibility
    monitors Java applications, providing Quby with deep insights and the
    ability to quickly determine where problems stem from.
  • Seamless AWS integration
    Sysdig Monitor imports
    Amazon metadata and presents Quby with an automatic view of the
    logical structure of its instances, microservices, and applications.
  • Empowered and better-informed stakeholders
    gives DevOps, DevSecOps, management teams, sales, and c-suite
    employees within Quby visibility into the environment at different
    levels of detail with a common language for cross-company information
  • All-encompassing forensics and post-mortem analysis for better
    decision making

    Sysdig records all activity, including
    commands, processes, network, and file system operations, enabling
    post-mortem analysis and forensics for Quby from the time of an
    incident, as well as pre-incident activity trails.
  • Sysdig helps Quby win Customers
    Quby uses Sysdig
    dashboards to demonstrate the reliability of its service. Dashboards
    visually show potential customers the stability of the Quby system
    over a given time period and its ability to quickly spot issues with a
    level of detail other monitoring platforms cannot provide.

"Together, Sysdig Secure and Sysdig Monitor ensure that our environment
is healthy and it automatically alerts the team when any possible issue
arises," said Morales. "Customers will often have concerns like, ‘You
will be tendering to a million of my clients, and if something goes
wrong, they're gonna blame me.' This could be detrimental to our
customer, so reliable service from a stable environment isn't
negotiable. With Sysdig, we have full transparency. We know exactly what
is going on in our environment and are confident our environment is rock

Moving application security, monitoring, and quality closer to the

"Today there's pressure to build and adapt as quickly as possible. We
find that enterprises often push security and monitoring until later in
the cycle," said Loris Degioanni, CTO and founder of Sysdig. "Quby came
to us after their move to the cloud because they felt that strain of
managing their own environment with tools that didn't handle a dynamic
cloud very well. I love our partnership with Quby because they are
growing so rapidly and we are able to take some of that burden off of
their DevOps and help them reduce the time spent manually monitoring and
securing their infrastructure."
