Datadog Valuable Features

Their interface is probably one of the easiest things to use because it lets non-developers and non-engineers quickly get access to metrics and pull business value out of them. We could put together dashboards and give it to people who are non-technical, then they can see the state of the world. They have a very good ecosystem for their integrations. They have a lot of different integrations, and we use a lot of them. We have integrations with Amazon for ECS, RDS, and all of the subsystems of Amazon. We also have Docker and Splunk integrations. The integrations are great because they're definitely vetted and not third-party integrations. They're part of the Datadog ecosystem and seamless. View full review »

Its most valuable feature is the monitoring, such as all the custom metrics that Datadog imports from AWS. In addition, the specific monitoring where you can set up an alert to a bunch of different services. View full review »

It is incredibly easy to do common monitoring actions: * Excellent autocomplete for everything in the UI. * Using tags is very intuitive (in contrast to the cumbersome regex-like based querying in Graphite). * Going from viewing a metric to creating a monitor alerting on a metric is very easy. This is very important as the easier it is to create monitors, the more monitors will be created by people. With Graphite and Sensu, the effort required to create and test a monitor was so great that we had only a handful of monitors. We now have over 300 monitors. View full review »

It's hosted. We don't have to do it, and they handle a large amount of data with backups and all of the other things that we no longer have to manage. View full review »
