Datadog today announced the availability of Datadog Application Performance Monitoring (APM) to extend the company’s existing network monitoring platform.
Typically, Datadog has been used for cloud infrastructure monitoring, and customers have been asking that its platform include an APM offering, converging the two, and Datadog responded. The new offering will focus on cloud applications running at scale.
Datadog APM comes with customizable dashboards for metric correlation and graphs showing the most frequently used code paths. This will allow engineering teams to identify and compare changes in the infrastructure and code simultaneously.
In July, the monitoring company expanded its services onto Microsoft Azure following the release of Azure Resource Manager (ARM). ARM lets users deploy and manage applications on Azure, and now customers will be able to use Datadog APM to monitor those applications. Datadog also offers its services on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
However, the company touts dozens of cloud platforms that are integrated into its monitoring system.
