Datadog and Microsoft Strike Partnership

Datadog has announced a new strategic partnership with Microsoft Azure. As a result Datadog will now be available in the Azure console as a first class service. This means that Azure customers will be able to implement Datadog as a monitoring solution for their cloud workloads through new streamlined workflows that cover everything from procurement to configuration.

Datadog reports that the improved onboarding experience makes Datadog setup automatic, so new users can start monitoring the health and performance of their applications with Datadog quickly, whether they are based entirely in Azure or spread across hybrid or multi-cloud environments. With the deepest integration and the easiest configuration, Datadog is now clearly positioned as the premier monitoring solution for Azure.

In addition to the integration enhancements, the new channel through the Azure Marketplace allows customers to draw down on their committed Azure spend to purchase Datadog. This makes it significantly easier for customers to find budget, and also aligns incentives for Azure and Datadog sales teams for better collaboration and engagement in co-sell motions with enterprise clients. As a result, this partnership will enable more Azure customers to leverage Datadog’s observability platform to drive successful cloud modernization and migration initiatives.

Datadog’s native presence represents a first-of-its-kind integration of a third-party service into Azure.

“Azure is the first cloud to enable a seamless configuration and management experience for customers to use partner solutions like Datadog. Together with Datadog, we are enabling customers to use this experience to monitor their Azure workloads and enable an accelerated transition to the cloud,” – Corey Sanders, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Azure

“Observability is a key capability for any successful cloud migration. Through our new partnership with Microsoft Azure, customers will now have access to the Datadog platform directly in the Azure console, enabling them to migrate, optimize and secure new and migrated workloads.” – Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer, Datadog

Through the new experience in the Azure Portal, customers can:

  • Purchase a Datadog plan and consolidate billing through the Azure Marketplace
  • Start sending Azure logs and metrics to Datadog with a few clicks
  • View and manage which Azure resources are monitored by Datadog
  • Easily deploy the Datadog agent to Azure hosts and web applications
