Cloud Monitoring Provider Datadog Adds Support for Microsoft Azure Storage

Datadog, a monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, has expanded its support for Microsoft Azure with a new integration for Azure Storage. This would empower large enterprise companies running their infrastructure on Azure to gain knowledge into the storage services powering their workloads and applications. 

The Azure Storage integration provides insights such as network errors, connection latency, and storage utilization, enabling customers to keep closer tabs on a vital part of the Azure stack.

“We’ve seen 100 percent growth of Microsoft Azure among our 5,000 enterprise customers over the past year,” said Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer of Datadog. “By utilizing Datadog, enterprise customers running cloud environments can effectively manage the performance of their large scale Azure-hosted applications.”
