Datadog, a monitoring service for dynamic cloud environments, has announced the release of a new Application Performance Monitoring (APM) extension to its platform. This APM solution is specifically built to help devops teams quickly troubleshoot issues in complex, distributed applications that use hybrid clouds, microservices or containers.

“Most APM tools on the market today are designed to troubleshoot coding issues in isolation,” said Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer, Datadog. “However, in modern cloud-scale applications, quickly resolving problems requires examining changes in both the infrastructure and code simultaneously.”
