Testimonials

Here at Shuttlers we are into making mobility cheap and affordable, therefore ease of payment is key to the whole operation. We have been having many complaints regarding our payment flows from users but it's been difficult identifying the bottleneck until we started using Akita for monitoring and alerts. Akita analytics helped us resolve the issue in record time. Integrating Akita into our Kubernetes environment was also super easy compared to other solutions we have tried.

David Jaiyeola
Engineering Manager, Shuttlers

I lead product and engineering at zMatch, an early-stage electric mobility and clean energy startup. For us, quickly understanding and taking action upon possible bottlenecks is more important than perfect observability. Akita's API maps and per-endpoint monitoring have given us the visibility we need into our systems, without the work of setting up our own custom dashboards. Setting up Akita on Fargate was fast, easy, and more straightforward than alternatives we considered.

Guilherme Mori
CTO, zMatch

I had heard of eBPF, but I never thought it would be that easy to drop Akita into Kubernetes. I just redeployed with a different deployment template and Akita as a sidecar. It was really valuable to just put Akita in our cluster and look at the traffic right away.

David Gomez-Urquiza
CTO, Deal Engine

Akita has been really easy to set up for API monitoring compared to other APM solutions. No outdated SDKs or endless pages of install instructions for one tool after another.

Kunal Kundu
Software Engineer, Verak (WC21)

I was doing some API testing today in one of our test environments. I thought I had no way to verify that a newly-updated k8s resource (a Prometheus Service Monitor to be specific) was passing in basic auth credentials to our /metrics endpoint...until I looked at our traffic in Akita and was able to see the Authorization header being passed! So, pretty cool. Thanks!

Tim Wolford
Software Engineer, Commonwealth Charter Academy

Akita gives us a unique kind of observability that lets us see what our API is really doing, knowledge that our engineers can use to cut through years of legacy and rapidly make improvements.”

Akita will be very impactful for teams that need to understand software systems built by large, evolving teams. At UKG, we have observability issues common to companies who have been around for a while. I’m excited about how Akita provides drop-in observability, without needing to change code."

Ken Barclay
Lead SRE, Ultimate Kronos Group

The Akita set-up experience has been a breeze. I used to work for Splunk, and tried a bunch of other tools, including Sumo Logic and Datadog, before. Akita is literally just plug and play.
