Understand your software architecture like never before

Make better, faster design decisions. Identify hidden risks to system reliability.

Archium is an interactive architecture model of your distributed system, created automatically from your distributed tracing data.

a picture is worth
a thousand words

If your team is like most technology organisations, then you probably have some diagrams of your software architecture lying around somewhere.

But if you’re like most technology organisations, those diagrams are probably hard to find on your wiki, or they’re photos of a whiteboard sketch, or they’re out of date by 12 months, or they only include part of your system, or it’s not clear what a line between two boxes actually means, or…
all of the above!

Modern software architectures are getting more complex every day

Got microservices?

Most organisations with an investment in bespoke software are now building increasingly complex distributed systems. Tech teams can no longer be expected to remember all the details of their system’s design.

Important questions like “Which components need to be available for this feature to work?” often can't be answered without searching through masses of code or speaking to a lot of people.

Archium can help you understand your system like never before.

Visualise every data flow

Now, Archium can give you an interactive architecture model that shows exactly what’s going on in your distributed system and help you to answer your most important questions.

This isn’t just high-level dependency diagrams resembling spaghetti. You can browse around your whole architecture, seeing exactly where data flows through your system, how it gets there, and why each component is involved.

Get a comprehensive, up-to-date and interactive architecture model of your system

Using data you're already collecting with distributed tracing, Archium provides your team with detailed diagrams just like this one for each business process that flows through your system. You can focus the service map on any component in your system, and see an analysis of all its upstream and downstream dependencies.

Your whole architecture becomes browsable through a beautiful, intuitive web application, complete with fast search and sharing-friendly links.

How does it work?

Getting your team an in-depth understanding of your system could hardly be easier.
