The company was founded by Ozan Unlu and Fatih Yildiz in 2018. After having experienced the challenges and limitations of traditional monitoring technologies from two different perspectives, their knowledge and experience combined with recent advances in technology allowed the founding team to take a novel approach to solve immediate needs for DevOps, IT/Ops, SRE, and Security teams.
As a Dev Lead at Microsoft working on Azure and Security teams and a tenured Senior Solutions Architect at Sumo Logic, Ozan had the opportunity to work with hundreds of organizations from small startups to large enterprises to help implement and improve their architecture and observability infrastructure. Fatih, a highly respected and seasoned software engineer at Microsoft and Twitter, developed and operated highly complex distributed systems at petabyte scales.
Through their experiences they both arrived at the conclusion that centralizing, indexing, and storing all raw observability data, at all times, is a model that needs to be improved upon to support real time and operational use cases. Their history working on projects together as engineers at Microsoft brought them back together. Today, they are passionate about working with engineering teams across the industry to learn and understand how the Edge Delta platform can most effectively solve prevalent problems in logs, traces, and metrics data sets.
