Venture Capital-Backed OzCode Unveils Debugging-as-a-Service

Israeli startup OzCode has announced the launch of its Debugging-as-a-Service solution, while being funded by Israeli venture capital company RDC and TPY Capital. These two venture capital companies led OzCode’s funding round to support the production of debugging product development with $3.5 million in seed capital.

Accessible through the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, OzCode’s Azure DevOps solution provides collaboration, root cause analysis, and patent-pending time travel, allowing developers to pinpoint the exact moment of failure in a distributed cloud environment.

Key features of the production-debugging toolset being launched include:

  • ‘Prebugging’ allowing developers to see into the future and fix bugs before they happen
  • Automatic redaction of personally identifiable information (PII) to comply with regulatory constraints
  • “Live coding” to obtain instant verification of changes before re-deploying
  • Fast, intuitive analysis of crash dumps
  • Automated tests from production use-cases
  • Full traceability that integrates into the existing bug tracking DevOps workflow

“Studies show that roughly 50 percent of a software developer’s time is spent debugging. OzCode’s DaaS solution reduces that time significantly and makes it possible – for the first time – for coders to find the problematic source code easily and quickly,” said Omer Raviv, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of OzCode. “Our goal is to drastically reduce the amount of time spent on debugging, and thereby improve the lives of our fellow developers.”

With product features supported and tested by a community of outside developers and engineers, OzCode was first created as an integrated development environment (IDE) extension for Visual Studio, now used by more than 1,000 customers and 5,000 developers. The next release of OzCode’s Azure DevOps would provide more robust production debugging capabilities and integrate with any developer, on any cloud.

Following the funding round, Yaron Elad and Kobi Katz from RDC, and Guy Yamen from TPY Capital will join OzCode’s Board of Directors.
