Datadog’s more than 400 integrations collect monitoring data from across your entire stack, giving you full visibility into the health and performance of your applications and infrastructure. Alerts are a crucial part of any monitoring workflow, as they draw your attention to problems in your system before they affect your users. But whether you’re migrating to a new environment or integrating a new technology into your stack, it’s not always clear what data you should alert on.

Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) are major inhibitors for organizations moving to the cloud—and for good reason. Cloud environments are complex, and even a single misconfigured security group can result in a serious data breach. In fact, asset misconfigurations were the leading cause of cloud security breaches in 2019. This puts a lot of pressure on developer and operations teams to properly secure their services and maintain regulatory compliance.

When your application experiences an outage, the tools your team uses to manage its response can make all the difference in how quickly they resolve the problem and avoid it in the future. An effective incident management workflow depends on accessible, integrated tools as well as clear, direct channels of communication. And, even after the matter’s been resolved, documentation and analysis of an outage is vital to ensuring it never happens again.

When your applications raise errors, you need a way to make sense of them so you can set priorities, start troubleshooting, and gauge the success of your efforts. Errors can appear within the thousands of browser sessions and backend hosts running your software, making it difficult to find meaning within the noise. This is especially true of frontend errors, where seemingly endless permutations of browser version, location, and other environmental details can make it hard to spot trends.

Testing within the CI/CD pipeline, also known as shift-left testing, is a devops best practice that enables agile teams to continually assess the viability of new features at every stage of the development process. Running tests early and often makes it easier to catch issues before they impact your users, reduce technical debt, and foster efficient, cross-team collaboration.

As organizations build out their serverless footprint, they might find themselves managing hundreds or thousands of individual components (e.g., Amazon S3 buckets, Amazon DynamoDB tables, AWS SQS queues) for just a single application. At the same time, performance issues can crop up at any of these points, which means that having access to detailed observability data from your serverless functions is crucial for effective troubleshooting.

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.

Terraform allows you to efficiently manage complex infrastructure environments, and Datadog is an important piece of those environments. With the Datadog provider, you can use Terraform to manage your Datadog resources as code, allowing you to create and edit resources with the same tool you’re already using for your infrastructure. This video will show you how to do just that through the example of creating a Datadog monitor.
