Cloud application monitoring and security platform, Datadog (NASDAQ: DDOG), has earned Amazon Web Services (AWS) Government Competency certification. Datadog’s significant expertise working with U.S. federal clients to provide mission-critical workloads and apps on AWS has earned them this distinction.
The AWS Government Competency designation would acknowledge Datadog’s platform’s ability to fulfill the unique requirements of government clients in terms of security, compliance, performance, and operational metrics. According to the FedRAMP marketplace, Datadog has been given an Authority to Operate (ATO) by 12 federal agencies.
“Datadog is excited to achieve AWS Government Competency status,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, Senior Vice President, Product and Community, Datadog. “We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with AWS to support government agencies’ cloud modernization initiatives. In addition, the product capabilities that this designation reflects – such as the high availability of our service across multiple availability zones – benefits customers across all industries, not only those in government.”
AWS created the AWS Competency Program to assist clients in identifying AWS Partners with significant industry knowledge and expertise to enable the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions.

Datadog is an Amazon Partner Network (APN) member who supports a wide range of AWS services. Infrastructure metrics, application traces, log data, and synthetic monitoring are all included in Datadog’s cloud monitoring platform, allowing government agencies to expand their cloud environments, diagnose possible issues, and offer exceptional citizen experiences.
“Serving millions of California residents at scale has required us to modernize systems and adopt new cloud technologies,” said Jeff Garrett, Technical Product Manager, California Department of Health Care Services. “Datadog provides the visibility we need to monitor containerized microservices applications across the entire stack with confidence.”
