Datadog is a widely known monitoring and analytics platform for developers, IT operations teams and business users in the cloud age through which they integrate and automate infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring and log management to provide unified, real-time observability of our customers’ entire technology stack. Organizations employs the use of Datadog to fully accelerates the simple metrics of businesses which include driving digital transformation and cloud migration, drive collaboration among development, operations and business teams, and to accelerate time.

As such, its recent support announcement for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Formation’s new capabilities will enhance its capacity to manage third party resources. The AWS CloudFormation Registry provides a common framework for managing and provisioning all the infrastructure components in a cloud environment, including third party services and resources. Therefore, by working together, it is a lot easier to build reliable, repeatable processes for monitoring dynamic infrastructure.

“Companies are relying on CloudFormation more than ever to automate infrastructure provisioning on AWS. Customers want the same safety, predictability, and speed to manage non-AWS components too,” said Amjad Hussain, Director, AWS CloudFormation. “Users can now enjoy the ability to easily setup and maintain their Datadog resources as code, just as they do for the rest of their AWS services.”

According to reports; Datadog’s cloud monitoring platform brings together infrastructure metrics, application traces, log data, synthetic monitoring, and network performance monitoring, allowing organizations to scale their cloud environments, troubleshoot potential issues, and provide their customers with excellent digital experiences. Datadog supports a wide range of AWS services, and is a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN).

“We’re excited to support the new AWS CloudFormation features,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, VP of Product and Community at Datadog. “Providing repeatable steps for provisioning and setting up monitoring resources will help our customers with their critical AWS infrastructure.”
