Datadog and Microsoft

Datadog will be available as a first class service within the Azure Portal, enabling customers to accelerate their cloud journey

Datadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced a new strategic partnership with Microsoft Azure. As part of this launch, Datadog will now be available in the Azure console as a first-class service. This means that Azure customers will be able to implement Datadog as a monitoring solution for their cloud workloads through new streamlined workflows that cover everything from procurement to configuration. The improved onboarding experience makes Datadog setup automatic, so new users can start monitoring the health and performance of their applications with Datadog quickly, whether they are based entirely in Azure or spread across hybrid or multi-cloud environments. With the deepest integration and the easiest configuration, Datadog is now clearly positioned as the premier monitoring solution for Azure.

In addition to the integration enhancements, the new channel through the Azure Marketplace allows customers to draw down on their committed Azure spend to purchase Datadog. This makes it significantly easier for customers to find budget, and also aligns incentives for Azure and Datadog sales teams for better collaboration and engagement in co-sell motions with enterprise clients. As a result, this partnership will enable more Azure customers to leverage Datadog’s observability platform to drive successful cloud modernization and migration initiatives.
