New Relic was a good tool but had really pushy salespeople. They also released a product called infrastructure recently, and it was worse than their previous product (servers). The previous product was also free! Needless to say, we will not be going back to New Relic any time soon.

Easier to set up and integrate with other auxiliary tools. The cost was also a benefit along with self-service capabilities. We could set up Data Dog by ourselves, versus needing to bring additional consulting efforts to setup Dynatrace. Reliability of results (less false alerts and more real alerts when systems were down) were a plus.

Ultimately, Datadog had the most already-built bridges into our existing infrastructure -- third parties that we're using for certain services are far more likely to work with Datadog than other systems. This means that, while expensive, Datadog has done a tremendous amount of work for us and leaves us with a greater ability to see what our systems are doing and why.

Datadog has been harder to setup out-of-the-box compared to its alternatives, although it's graphs and dashboards have been more useful. Other tools handle individual tasks better. For example, Splunk has been the best logging tool I've used, and New Relic is great for CPU and browser monitoring, but DataDog is the best-packaged solution. It has the best pricing model when you have many applications/micro-services and once set up, integrates very easily with other tools.

It has been easier to work with Datadog for all our business needs and get things on their roadmap if we found it lacking. Currently we use a mix of various tools as they were existing prior to Datadog came. We are evaluating new offering like Datadog's latest log management to see if they meet our expectations.
Its definitely growing & maturing at a rapid pace to make it more useful.

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.

Geckoboard has nice dashboard options, however their third party system support isn't as strong as Datadog. Geckoboard did not support all the various server and development systems we use, whereas Datadog did. Also, Datadog has better alerting and monitoring options than Datadog. Geckoboard was mainly geared toward dashboards and we needed more.

Datadog empowers us to create dashboards and visualize the state of our infrastructure in real time. It gives us control over what we want to view and how. The graphs provide deep insight into trends and anamoly detectives. These features are lacking in some of the other monitoring solutions out there.

Datadog visually is up there with the rest of these products. For some projects I use datadog and others I use different open source tools. For our production environment we use datadog and with Puppet the installation on each of our servers makes it quick and easy to install. For non-production servers we use other tools.
