MetricFire was founded in 2012 in Dublin, Ireland. MetricFire was originally branded as “Hosted Graphite” and offered Hosted Graphite and StatsD services. Hosted Graphite saw constant development since it was first founded, and by 2019 it was also offering Hosted Grafana and Prometheus tools. The number of integrations also grew, and users can now amplify with plugins like GitHub, PagerDuty, Slack, Heroku, CircleCI, and more.
As a result of this development, the name ‘Hosted Graphite’ no longer applied. MetricFire was launched to incorporate the broad set of solutions available on our platform.
The MetricFire platform runs on-premise and on-cloud, with support from engineers for alerting design, analytics, and overall monitoring. MetricFire is a suite of open source monitoring tools, such as Hosted Graphite, Prometheus, and Grafana that come together as a complete application, infrastructure, and network monitoring platform.
Hosted Graphite announced its expansion with a new service: MetricFire, it adds Hosted Prometheus to the platform offered by Hosted Graphite
