Unleash the Raygun on software exceptions

Wellington, NZ, February 8, 2013 - Mindscape is thrilled to announce the launch of Raygun.io – the best way to track, manage and report on software errors automatically.

Raygun is a hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product, designed to assist companies in improving the reliability of their software by providing timely and manageable feedback on software errors. Raygun ensures that teams get sensible notifications, rather than one per error, that gives trend analysis and keeps them updated as an error progresses. The website gives instant insight into the overall health of the software it is monitoring – outstanding errors, grouped lists of errors, how the software errors are trending and more. Once an error occurs Raygun records as much information about it as possible to help developers resolve bugs more quickly.

Raygun has been running in private beta for several months and it is already processing more than 1000,000 software errors per day. “We’re excited to see the volume of use that Raygun is already receiving. Even more satisfying is the feedback from end users – one customer had Raygun help them discover an issue that was costing them thousands of dollars a day and they had no idea it was happening!” said John-Daniel Trask, co-founder of Mindscape.

Raygun customers integrate a small component into their software. This often takes fewer than 5 minutes to do and can start seeing results immediately after that.

The Raygun service has been under development for six months and has a dedicated team actively evolving the product at Mindscape – both in terms of the hosted application and in adding support for new programming languages and frameworks. Currently there is support for .NET, PHP, Java and WinRT, with support for Objective-C, Ruby and JavaScript coming very soon. Developers can of course use the REST API directly to post messages into Raygun from any source.

Raygun is debuting with payment options ranging from $9 per month to $199 per month depending on the needs of the team. All data is hosted securely and all communication with the Raygun service is done via 256-bit SSL encrypted connections.
