Lucid Software engineering duo raise $400K from investors for better logging


Herriman, UT — Matthew Barlocker and fellow Lucid Software alumnus Mark Siebert, cofounded Blue Matador, Inc. and have raised $400K from angel investors to create better application monitoring solutions.

Barlocker led the DevOps team at Lucid Software for 5 years. He used a lot of different monitoring tools in that time to debug and alert on the availability and security of terabytes of user data. Barlocker and Siebert set out to make a product that fits the needs of users like them.

“We’re starting with the logging product, but that’s just the beginning,” notes Barlocker. “Our focus is uptime, and when your monitoring tools get out of the way, it’s easier for you to get your five nines of availability. If you get an alert, and spend more than 10 seconds finding the relevant data, something has gone wrong.”

They plan on launching a server logging tool into beta this year with more tools to be announced in the future.
