### Tribily

13 14
Tribily was a startup within a startup where we did a project to run Zabbix-as-a-Service. This was using zabbix 1.4, which was still suffering from alert storms. While the project was self-financed and sustainable, it was shutdown in favor moving focus back to OlinData.

### Zabbix consulting

Along the previous Tribily project Walter and Krish Das did a lot of zabbix consulting, helping companies with their zabbix setups. There was a small foray where Walter started writing a zabbix book together with Rihards Olups, but quickly found out he wasn't made for writing books.
