Google Stackdriver was a cloud computing systems management service offered by Google. It provided performance and diagnostics data (in the form of monitoring, logging, tracing, error reporting, and alerting) to public cloud users. Stackdriver was a multi-cloud solution, providing support for both Google Cloud and AWS cloud environments.

Google ended use of the Stackdriver brand in February 2020.[1]


Stackdriver the company was created in 2012 by founders Dan Belcher and Izzy Azeri.[2] The company's goal was to provide consistent monitoring across cloud computing's multiple service layers, using a single SaaS solution.[buzzword][3]

Stackdriver secured US$5 million funding from Bain Capital Ventures in July 2012. A beta version of the product became publicly available on April 30, 2013.

In May 2014, the Stackdriver company was acquired by Google.[4] An expanded version of the product (adding support for logs analysis, hybrid cloud support, and deep integration with Google Cloud) was rebranded as Google Stackdriver and was launched to general availability in October, 2016.[5]

As of October 2020, the name Stackdriver has been deprecated to Google Cloud Operations.
