About Datadog

Datadog is a monitoring service for scaling cloud and on-prem infrastructures that bridges together data from servers, databases, apps and other tools. We provide Dev and Ops teams with insights from their cloud, on-prem or hybrid environments that keep applications running smoothly.

Datadog provides:

Real-time monitoring with advanced dashboarding and alerting
Correlation analysis that allows you to see when one system impacted another (events from one system over metrics from another)
Data at full granularity for up to a year for comprehensive historical analysis
Configuration changes, alerts and manual intervention event tracking with the ability to collaborate on those events with an entire team and send the data into other systems such as chat platforms, like HipChat and Slack and alert management systems like Pagerduty, OpsGenie and VictorOps
