Monitor Azure Container Apps with Datadog

Azure Container Apps is a serverless platform that enables you to deploy containerized applications and microservices—regardless of their code or framework—without managing any underlying cloud infrastructure or orchestrators. By using serverless containers, Azure Container Apps can automatically scale based on HTTP requests or events supported by Kubernetes event-driven autoscaling (KEDA) in order to accommodate peak demand and meet your budgeting goals.

Continuous integration (CI) demands continous testing: shifting left helps prevent faulty code from spreading, which is one of the core aims of CI. Datadog’s new Azure DevOps extension enables you to seamlessly incorporate integration and end-to-end tests into existing CI/CD workflows on Azure Pipelines, a dedicated CI/CD service that automatically runs builds, performs tests, and deploys your services and applications via cloud-hosted pipelines.

Two years ago I wrote a piece in The New Stack about the Future of Ops Careers. Towards the end, I wrote: I described the second category as “operations engineering minus the infrastructure,” dedicated to evaluating and assembling a production stack of third-party platform providers, enabling software engineers to self-serve their services and own their own code in production.
