Honeycomb.io is a leader in observability solutions for modern developer teams to rapidly understand and better debug production systems.

Honeycomb provides full stack observability—designed for high cardinality data and collaborative problem solving, enabling engineers to deeply understand and debug production software together.

Honeycomb's mission to empower engineering teams to ask new questions of their production systems and gain a deep understanding of their systems to quickly resolve issues with minimal impact.

Honeycomb's difference lies in the way data is stored and queried, which helps cross-functional teams inspect and conduct real-time analysis on the state of production.
