Grafana was founded in 2014 by Raj Dutt. The company headquarter is in New York, however, it started to work remotely before the pandemic time. During 2020 the company experienced rapid growth. The reason is that more and more companies now depend on technologies. “We help companies like these build better software, make it more reliable, reduce downtime, troubleshoot issues,” Dutt said. “All of these things are getting super complicated and the importance is at an all-time high.”
