Initial State is a data platform for the Internet of Things (IoT). We make it easy for anyone, from novice to enterprise, to send data from sensors and applications to a cloud where that data can be accessed anytime and instantly turned into something awesome - interactive real-time dashboards, charts, statistics, notifications, webhooks, etc. We are focused on creating a fantastic experience from the instant data is created until the moment data is consumed.
Founded in 2012 and based in Nashville, TN, Initial State is an investor-backed startup. You can read what the press has to say about us here.
Our technology stack was developed to deliver a consistent, secure, and fantastic experience for our users at large scale. RESTful APIs (accessed over HTTPS/TLS) provide a simple means for users to send and retrieve data to and from our high-performance, high-reliability back-end service (i.e. database, data store) in real-time. Our back-end service is both cost and performance optimized for time-series data and automatically scales to handle huge bursts in either data ingestion or consumption around the planet.
A set of interactive, real-time data visualizations were built from the ground-up to provide a unique and powerful way to visualize data. Each visualization is accessible via a modern web browser. When paired with our high-performance back-end, users can stream data from their applications and have a near instant transformation of that data into dashboards, waveforms, charts, etc. Our solution can be easily embedded into other websites.
We have an entire page dedicated to some of the fun, quirky, and semi-useful things that we created on the side (e.g. videos, slideshares, tools). This page is just a small reminder that we don't take ourselves too seriously.
