Today StackStorm exits stealth mode.
For those that have been following developments in our corner of OpenStack, we were never really in stealth mode since the StackStorm team is helping our friends at Mirantis and elsewhere in a couple of projects including Mistral, or Workflow as a Service.
However, until today we’ve never told our story. We’ve never put our contributions into context. And we’ve never even admitted we all work here or that we are funded or that we have a snazzy logo.
Here goes. “Hello world.” This is the beginning of our introduction of StackStorm to the world. Thus, I’d like to share five drivers that led me to help found StackStorm. I’ll cover one observation for each of the next five days.
Before I get to that – some context. StackStorm’s vision is to deliver self-driving, self-learning operations automation so that all of us can enjoy the kind of massive productivity lift that the top handful of operators already enjoy when they develop and operate software.

Team with deep expertise in automation and strong advisory board will focus on creating new generation of SaaS for self-driving data centers
Palo Alto, CA – StackStorm, a software company leading the third wave of operations automation, today emerged from stealth mode to introduce a private beta program for the company’s first product. Focused on delivering the increased productivity of DevOps approaches to a broader market, StackStorm’s vision – and how it defines the third wave of operations automation – is to make self-driving data centers that learn how to operate more efficiently. StackStorm is currently focused on enterprises deploying OpenStack.
“Succeeding in DevOps approaches to operations is critically important and yet extremely challenging,” said Mike Kavis, analyst at The Virtualization Practice. “Done right, DevOps leads to a step function improvement in operational efficiency and in the ability to meet the real needs of IT users. StackStorm’s vision of automating the automators, improving the ability to create and manage operations automations, is a leap in the right direction for DevOps to be more broadly adopted.”
