Monitor ECS applications on AWS Fargate with Datadog

AWS Fargate allows you to run applications in Amazon Elastic Container Service without having to manage the underlying infrastructure. With Fargate, you can define containerized tasks, specify the CPU and memory requirements, and launch your applications without spinning up EC2 instances or manually managing a cluster. Datadog has proudly supported Fargate since its launch, and we have continued to collaborate with AWS on best practices for managing serverless container tasks.


Save on your cloud spending: Five essential cloud cost management strategies that work

Simplify NFV adoption - Charmed OSM and Managed Apps

Charmed OSM and Managed Apps let telecom operators accelerate adoption of NFV. This is needed because the way we consume data has changed. We want data at a cheaper price with faster speeds and in larger quantities. To meet the challenge, telecom operators are changing the underlying network infrastructure that delivers data. Software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualisation (NFV) are enabling this by lowering costs and improving infrastructure flexibility.


Falco Support on AWS Fargate

Today we’re very excited to announce a partnership with Amazon to support Fargate in Sysdig’s product line. We are also announcing that Falco, the world’s most popular runtime security tool for containers, will soon be able to work on Fargate. This is an important milestone. For the first time, Fargate users will enjoy the benefit of deep instrumentation. This will make their workloads more secure, reliable, and efficient.
