Datadog has announced deeper integration with Microsoft Azure Resource Manager and Microsoft Azure SQL Database. The company is a major cloud-monitoring service that already uses Microsoft's cloud integrations. Now Azure will be used by the company on a deeper level, giving customers more performance.
Until today, Datadog used Microsoft's integrations for a number of services. The company collects metrics from Windows Management Instrumentation and Event Viewer.
Datadog will now also use Azure Resource Manager (ARM) and offer support for Microsoft Azure SQL Databased. ARM is a deployment tool for virtual machines on Azure and cloud servers. The company says the deeper integration will give large enterprise customers more control over their cloud output.
“We make it a top priority to build out integrations for new services from major cloud platforms as they are released,” said Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer, Datadog. “By utilizing Datadog, enterprise customers are now able to effectively manage the performance of their large scale Microsoft Azure-hosted applications.”
Datadog is associated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a chief third party monitoring providers for that cloud service. However, the company says it recognizes the need to expand with the growing demands for Microsoft's Azure platform.
“Datadog is a key monitoring tool for enterprise companies embracing the cloud,” said Eduardo Enciso, Global Business Strategist, Microsoft Corp. “Their new integrations with Microsoft Azure allow our mutual customers to use the capabilities in Microsoft Azure VM and Microsoft Azure SQL Database, with full visibility across multiple Azure services and applications.”
Earlier today it was revealed that the company was a victim of a significant AWS data breach. Datadog confirms that multiple servers breached and data leaked. The company sent an email to users over the weekend asking them to reset their credentials and create new ones.
