Datadog
DataDog Is well suited to all of the Infrastructure Monitoring Solutions, DB monitoring, and other Network monitoring also. It's not well suited because it cannot give perfect Infrastructure recommendations for our use case but also For example: If we are using AWS DB to monitor performance insights then Datadog is less effective there because AWS gives very niche recommendations.

I think that if your organization is network-oriented (such as telecom or ISP) deploying Entuity should be considered a mandatory step. Big organizations will benefit from the ITSM (ticketing, monitoring and CMDB) integrations.
However, if your goal is to ensure that the server layer is monitored in great level (process and service monitoring, log parsing etc.) then Entuity will not suit your needs.

Pros
Datadog
  • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
  • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
  • Lightweight agent on hosts

Cons
Datadog
  • We had a couple "integrations" that had some issues during setup, but Support addressed them very quickly
  • Unnecessary alerts about DataDog components...by the time I see them, they're almost always also fixed
  • I wish there was a DataDog mobile app that would have dedicated alerts (configurable per alert to override Do Not Disturb setting) instead of relying on emails notifications that could be overlooked in the midst of many incoming emails around the same time.

Usability
Datadog
The user interface is quite intuitive with the exception of the network map. As a deployer of software, it is trivial to setup.

Support Rating
Datadog
The support team usually gets it right. We did have a rather complicate issue setting up monitoring on a domain controller. However, they are usually responsive and helpful over chat. The downside would be I don’t think they have any phone support. If that is important to you this might not be a good fit.

Entuity support has always been quick to respond and the majority of the calls I had were resolved on the first call. In addition, the product documentation is easy to read and goes into great detail of how the product works. This is probably a reason why a support call is literally the last call for Entuity (no pun intended).

Alternatives Considered
Datadog
We are still trying other products, but people still like Datadog. After setting up a dashboard, it's great for monitoring instances on Datadog. Also, the DevOps team had a good time setting up Datadog. It means Datadog was way easier to set up compared to those others.

The list above shows you some of the products that Entuity replaces.
The good product and excellent support behind it make it a better choice from the admin's and EA's perspective. My customers have praised the short learning curve and the swift and professional support staff. From my own experience I can tell that this product is delivered with one of the finest sets of documentation I have ever seen.

  • Reconciling multiple tools (netflow, configuration, monitoring and discovery) into one tool simplified the support agreement.
  • Root cause analysis (RCA) time has been greatly reduced thanks to having all information in a single interface.
  • Security of the network devices has improved thanks to the discovery provided by Entuity.
