Launched in 2019 by Vishwa Krishnakumar and Ankur Rawal, Zenduty helps engineering teams recover from downtime faster.

Ankur Rawal, CTO and Co-founder of Zenduty said, "Recovering from downtime is tough and requires multiple stakeholders across different teams to come together to solve a complex problem. Having seen incidents closely from the lenses of production engineers, support teams, business owners, and end-users, we built Zenduty with a focus on collaboration, transparency, intelligence, automation, and post-incident learning.”

According to the startup, many large enterprises that traditionally have a high uptime are now rapidly adopting site reliability engineering (SRE) practices within their teams, along with implementing incident management processes that scale with their businesses.

Zenduty aims to be an essential part of their site reliability engineering stack.

Vishwa Krishnakumar, CEO & Co-founder of Zenduty, said, “We have been doubling every five months for the past 18 months. This round of investment along with our great set of strategic investors will help us increase our growth momentum and our market share in our key markets of North America and Europe. We are also looking forward to building a world-class, inclusive, and diverse team and accelerating product research and innovation.”
