Zero instrumentation serverless observability with AWS SAM and CDK integrations

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.

Monitor your Windows containers with Datadog

As cloud providers and infrastructure technologies grow their support for Windows containers, developers who use the Windows ecosystem are more and more able to enjoy the benefits of containerization. It’s quicker and easier than ever to modernize and deploy applications that use Windows-specific frameworks like .NET. Plus, Windows developers can use orchestration services like Kubernetes, Amazon ECS, or Docker Swarm to manage the complexity that containerized environments introduce.
