Datadog, a monitoring service for dynamic cloud infrastructure, announced expanded support for the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. After the release of Microsoft Azure Resource Manager (ARM) – the latest way to deploy virtual machines on the platform – Datadog will now support Microsoft Azure SQL Database as well as cloud servers deployed through ARM. This will empower large enterprise companies running their infrastructure in the cloud to correlate metrics from these new services with application performance.
With a unified view of the applications that run at scale in the cloud with its SaaS-based monitoring platform, Datadog's monitoring services are deeply integrated with Microsoft Azure. A new Azure Extension for Datadog brings data from Azure Diagnostics along with more than 100 cloud and application data sources together.
"Microsoft Azure enables developers to build and manage applications using the tools and frameworks of their choice," said Vibhor Kapoor, Azure director of product marketing. "We look forward to providing our customers real-time insight into the health and performance of their Azure applications, built with the rich ecosystem of technologies that Datadog supports."
