  • 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

  • Saved us (time & money) from developing our own monitoring utilities that would pale in comparison
  • Alerts allow us to remedy issues before our customers even know about them
  • Tracking resource usage over time allows us to better plan for future needs, before it becomes a pain-point.

  • Visibility into systems and performance gives us a go-to overview of all of our services.
  • APM provides additional context for which parts of our workloads are taking the most time from our servers, and gives us the ability to try to reduce these pain points.
  • Log management makes viewing logs from remote systems much easier, ultimately saving time and a lot of developer frustration.

  • Datadog's pricing model works very well with our software platform, in a much more cost effective way than it's competitors.
  • The ability to centralize/aggregate data in a single location and set up alerts with thresholds has proven invaluable in catching potential issues, allowing our team to fix small, inexpensive issues before they become large, very expensive issues.
  • The graphs and dashboards are used by stakeholders to understand key metrics and performance indicators, helping them make informed decisions when running the business.

  • Visibility into website issues and performance problems has improved our company communication.
  • Handling and detecting site issues faster has improved customer satisfaction and retention.
  • Configuration of the Datadog site can take a bit of time and we lost a bit of developer time during that process.
