The observability company Honeycomb has announced that it closed a $50 million Series C funding round. The round was led by Insight Partners with participation from Scale Venture Partners, Headline, Storm Ventures, Industry Ventures, and NextWorld Capital.

It will use the new funding to work on delivering more features, launching customer programs and outreach programs, investing in its OpenTelemetry distributions, expanding internationally, and continuing to grow its partner ecosystem. 

“We are very pleased to have Insight Partners join our existing investors as we scale to meet the demands for observability,” said Christine Yen, CEO of Honeycomb. “This infusion of capital accelerates our roadmap and international expansion, and helps ensure that observability and high-performance engineering practices are accessible to all teams—from SRE to product engineering, from novice to expert, from backend to client-side, and from startups to established enterprises going through digital transformation.”
