  • Tomer Glicksman

    Software Engineer

    It not only saved us days, if not weeks, of painstaking debugging but also provided a more streamlined and efficient approach to tackling complex issues in our production environment. In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, having tools like Lightrun at our disposal is what keeps us at the forefront of innovation and efficiency.

  • Danesh Q.

    Principal Software Engineer

    One of the best thing I loved about Lightrun is that the setup time is very minimal and then developers have full flexibility to take snapshots of heap or logs at any line of the code. This helps us move into a new direction of development wherein devs dont bother about putting a log statement just for debugging, which would often need a redeploy if log statements were missing.

  • Jacob Eckel

    VP | Gong R&D

    Leveraging Lightrun, our teams unraveled complex incidents that were challenging to solve and replicate locally using conventional debugging solutions allowing us to reduce the MTTR from Hours to Minutes.

  • Joe Larizza

    Director (UAT)

    Lightrun's direct integration into the production environment eliminates the need for back-and-forth emails and replication requests and enables us to swiftly identify issues, evaluate variables, and scrutinize expressions in real-time, all while the system functions seamlessly.

  • Thomas Haver

    Automation Architect

    The tool is user-friendly. It contains the features necessary for us to perform appropriate failure analysis. Our prior state (and current state for many teams) involves cobbling together from various sources and using individuals as oracles for past failures. Lightrun makes it easier to do root cause analysis.

  • Asaf Saar

    VP Product Management

    Lightrun has changed the way I approach debugging for my cloud-native applications. The ability to debug during runtime, directly from my preferred integrated development environment (IDE), has been a game-changer in my development workflow.

“Lightrun has been a game-changer for us. With Lightrun we shortened our development process significantly by skipping iterative deployment cycles when adding logs and metrics. A day’s work turned into just one hour. Lightrun provided us with new observability into our production environment that was not accessible to us beforehand. Lightrun is a key component in our developer toolset here at Taboola and one of our development best practices.”

Rami Stern R&D Infrastructure Team Leader at Taboola

“Drata’s main focus is to ensure we’re delivering value for our customers and addressing their most urgent needs; we embrace that approach across the entire organization. Leveraging Lightrun to significantly streamline logging has allowed us to remediate faster without shifting our focus away from critical business initiatives.”

Dave Knell VP Software Engineering at Drata

“Using Lightrun to debug an actual issue in production enabled us to react instantly. We were able to add the right logs and identify the root-cause in a real-time session, instead of waiting for redeployments.”

Tom Shapira Director of Software Engineering at WhiteSource
Fortune 10 company

“Lightrun is a strategic tool in our SRE & incident mgmt. playbook, and increases the organization’s capacity to respond to customer-facing applicative issues quickly. Lightrun empowers our developers with safe, real-time troubleshooting capabilities and has enabled them to debug mission-critical, complex applicative issues 50-60% faster.“
