Datadog Review

It has enhanced the performance of my team

What is our primary use case?

We use it for notifications, alerting, and capturing most of the information from Amazon, such as EC2 instances.

How has it helped my organization?

It has enhanced the performance of my team.

What needs improvement?

The product could do better with its notifications. 

I want more technical support than conferences because technical support helps with setting up the product much easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

So far, it has been pretty stable. After we stand up and configure it, it works well.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have managed to get up to 350 hosts in one of the clusters, and it works fine.

How is customer service and technical support?

Datadog's support is pretty good.

How was the initial setup?

The integration and configuration of the product in our AWS environment was easy. This was one of the many things that I liked about Datadog.

What was our ROI?

I have not seen ROI out.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We chose Datadog over the other products that we evaluated because it had better features: notifications, alerting, and metric capture. Also, Datadog had the skill sets that we wanted at the time.

What other advice do I have?

Try out some of the other products in comparison. This is a good product if you are looking for notifications and custom metrics.

We have always used the cloud version of this product.

This product also integrates with Slack and PagerDuty.
