Founded in 2021 by Shahar Azulay (formerly ML Manager, Apple) and Yechezkel Rabonivich (formerly Chief Architect, CyberMDX), groundcover is a K8s application monitoring solution designed for modern production environments, which covers everything, stores only what that matters, allowing teams to go far without worries. The system uses eBPF* to provide deep observability of Kubernetes, using it to trace any type of event – ​​from network and infrastructure, to services and applications running in user space. By using eBPF to collect observability data directly from the Linux kernel, the company requires no R&D effort in the process.

*eBPF was first introduced in 2014 and allows programs to run directly in an isolated virtual machine inside the Linux kernel. Over the past 24 months, eBPF has evolved to solve new use cases, in areas such as network infrastructure, security, and observability.
