APM isn't just for Ops: Shifting Left and supercharging your developers

When we were rethinking what an Application Performance Monitoring product could be, we did what we always did. We thought of developers, and the ultimate users that they serve.

Datadog on RocksDB

Datadog is a monitoring and analytics platform that ingests trillions of data points per day, coming from more than 8,000 customers. Each of those is associated with metadata, mostly in the form of tags, and it can also be part of streams of related data points, which can then be explored, queried, or aggregated. RocksDB is used by many services at Datadog that are part of that metrics ingestion, aggregation, query, and index pipeline.
