Humio is the creator of the Humio live observability platform that enables data aggregation, exploration, reporting and analysis from a range of sources. The purpose-built logging tool features innovative data storage and in-memory search/query engine technologies

Christian Hvidtved and Kresten Krab officially founded Humio in 2016 in Aarhus, Denmark, when they brought on Geeta Schmidt as CEO. In early 2016, they released its first product, Humio.

They built Humio as an alternative to existing logging solutions that were missing key elements they needed to achieve results that couldn’t be done with traditional log management tools. Humio is about getting you back to feeling the hum of your systems by exploring, iterating, and understanding all logs.

Humio has had a total of $32 million in funding. The company has 70+ employees throughout San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Austin, London, and Aarhus, Denmark.
