About Us


Like the night sky, distributed systems are vastly more complex than what meets the eye. We founded Vortella with a singular focus: Enable enterprise IT operators to identify unseen connections amid the billions of events that occur every day. But our story doesn’t stop there. With recent advancements in machine learning, we're automating contextual understanding to predict and avert issues before they even happen.

Vorstella was founded in 2016 by Matt Stump and Avinash Mandava. Matt and Avinash previously collaborated on some of the world’s largest distributed system deployments, helping Fortune 500 clients such as Netflix, Walmart and Sony operationalize their data infrastructure plans. In their roles as technologists and DevOps operators, Matt and Avinash discovered they could save time and money — with lower risk and effort — by building intelligent, purpose-built software. Vorstella took shape shortly thereafter.
