StackIQ
StackIQ

StackIQ, founded in 2011 by (from left) Greg Bruno, Tim McIntire, and Mason Katz, specializes in software used to automate datacenters used by big companies, telcos, and cloud/hosting providers. StackIQ’s technology has benefitted from the industry shift from three-tiered server farms (database, app server, and Web server) to flatter, but highly distributed server clusters. (OpenStack, Hadoop, Spark, are all examples of this trend.) So far, StackIQ has raised $10.5 million from Avalon Ventures, Anthem Venture Partners, Greyhawk Capital, and OurCrowd.
