    Datadog

    Datadog is a no-brainer for any environment that relies on multiple servers. Even for one server, it's so much better to use for monitoring and alert capability than anything else I remember looking at before we started using Datadog. Teams can even use it to track their progress of investigating an alert so multiple people aren't unknowingly looking into the same exact issue unnecessarily.

    Easy to set up in all environments. With this tool, the company is now able to measure both well-functioning data and data that needs immediate intervention. This early detection facilitates decisions about actions to correct the disorder and improve indexes. Stackdriver is now essential for the company's security and monitoring team and we plan to expand to other branches.

    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

    Google Cloud Operations Suite (formerly Stackdriver)

    • All the application error reporting available at a single place.
    • You will get the real-time application error and alerts.
    • It's really easy to use and no need to worry for the setup.

    Cons

    Datadog

    • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
    • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
    • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.
    Kevin Van Heusen | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Cloud Operations Suite (formerly Stackdriver)

    • For searching and filtering the logs the system is slow sometimes.
    • An agent needs to be installed in each VM to monitor specific metrics.
    • The pricing model is confusing.

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

    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.

    It is also a great problem detection tool, and this is extremely important for General Motors.
    The user can count on the ease of flexible panels and advanced visualization tools that help to identify problems. Among the most common, we can mention:
    - containment of hosts;
    - cloud provider limitation;
    - hardware wear.
    And also Stackdriver Integration with other Google Cloud data tools such as BigQuery, Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage and Cloud Database.

    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.

    Return on Investment

    Datadog

    • One of our critical production databases went down a couple of weeks back. Just because we had the Datadog monitoring enabled for that database, Datadog sent the alerts to PagerDuty and we were instantly notified via pager and email alert. We could act right away and bring up the database within a few mins.
    • Ability to create custom screenboards have allowed us to track the critical and warning alerts in front of our eyes all the time
    Rajeshh Raghavan | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Cloud Operations Suite (formerly Stackdriver)

    • We completely depends on Stackdriver for error monitoring and reporting.
    • Stackdriver is very simple to use and available at default.
    • Stackdriver is the key part for our business to get the insight of our application behavior.
