Overall Satisfaction with Datadog

Datadog is used by couple of departments within the organization. We are using it to monitor our infrastructure such as the servers, containers, processes, storage health as well as to load and look into the metrics.
  • Single stop for monitoring various database types and their infrastructure.
  • Easier to look into metrics history.
  • Managing downtime for various resources is simple.
  • It would be good if there were a way to remove resources from Datadog faster.
  • 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
OEM and Vertica Management console are limited to their own databases whereas Datadog has the ability to monitor multiple types of databases.
We have gotten prompt support as and when we needed it.

Do you think Datadog delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Datadog again?


An organization that has multiple types of NoSQL databases and different applications can definitely use Datadog to have as a one-stop solution to monitor resources as well as metrics.
