Overall Satisfaction with Datadog

We use Datadog for monitoring our public cloud. We integrate it with some of the AWS components and monitor our instances on the cloud. It's a great solution for cloud-based monitoring with APIs.
  • Dashboards are so great.
  • Rest API functionality makes this one of the best monitoring tools on the market.
  • With the integration it provides with cloud watch, there is an option to monitor even without the agent installation.
  • We need to automate the agent installation, otherwise, it's a tedious job to do manually.
  • The integration with AWS had some issues in the past, but that seems better now.
  • This product has a steep learning curve at the beginning.
  • All positive. A great tool that fits our needs in the cloud. The alters and metrics are very useful to react before our customer can sense any issue.
The pricing, the customer service and it most importantly it does the job we expect.
It's well suited for monitoring instances in the cloud. Good pricing. But I feel that the performance monitoring and instrumentation is still better in New Relic.
