Infrastructure monitoring start-up Server Density scoops $1.5m

Mashery co-founder Owen Michels has joined the London-based company’s board as part of the deal

Server Density, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) infrastructure monitoring start-up, has closed a $1.5m seed round led by Barnaby Terry of SP Ventures, alongside angel investors Christoph Janz, Dick Williams and Qamar Aziz.

London-based Server Density has created a tool which syncs with major cloud providers to allow its customers to monitor their websites and servers from a single console, API and mobile app so they can identify problems and optimise performance.

More than 1,000 customers, including the NHS’ Ambulance Response service, Algolia and ServerHub, use the tool to monitor their servers, collecting more than two billion metrics of data daily.

The funding will be used to fuel product development and build “world-class support capability” for the 90% of its customer base residing outside the UK.

Co-founder of Mashery, Owen Michels, has joined Server Density’s board of directors as part of the investment round.

David Mytton, CEO of Server Density, said: “I’m excited about this new round because it will allow us to invest in key areas while still maintaining the efficient, bootstrapped model that got us to where we are today.

“Raising money at this stage means we can continue our own style of running the business but with added resources to build an even better product.”

Michels commented: “I’ve known Mytton for six years and have watched him build an amazing product that customers around the world rely on for its quality, simplicity and design. I’m honored to join the Server Density board and help the company further expand its US presence from my base here in New York.”
