Almost every member of FireScope has spent time working in IT ops. Hard time. We’ve all had the 3:00 AM call where the world is ending because email is down. We’ve all had vacations interrupted by that phone call that starts with “I’ve just got a quick question…” Some of us are hard-core linux fanatics, some feel a certain amount of comfort when clicking on the start button (we won’t talk about the brawling for now…). Some of us worked for large multi-nationals with IT staff spread across the globe, while others just wished they had a second person. And when we made the plunge and started FireScope, we made a commitment to ourselves to produce a solution we had all only dreamt about.
