About Metafor Software
Metafor Software automates anomaly detection so that it only takes minutes for data center operators to identify inconsistencies that create errors and downtime. We are dedicated to hunting down anomalies in computing infrastructures where change is constant and continuous, to prevent downtime, improve performance, and reduce risk. Our unique anomaly detection engine is based on advanced algorithms that apply machine learning to high-speed anomaly detection, with the goal of providing system analytics that alert DevOps staff to anomalies before they turn into problems.
The team made Jenny the CEO so she can do all the things they don’t want to do. Luckily, Jenny has an irrational desire to take on challenges, like learning to code in machine language or trading in a comfortable VC life to experience the startup grind. Before she started on the Metafor quest, she had many wonderful adventures at BDC Venture Capital, BCG, Bain, Nortel, and Telus.
