Datadog Empowers DevOps Teams to Monitor the Performance of their Application Dependencies for Windows Server
Datadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced the extension of Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) to Windows. Datadog NPM now monitors the performance of network communications between applications running on Windows Server and Linux, providing seamless network visibility across cloud environments, on-premises data centers, and operating systems.
Datadog Network Performance Monitoring translates distributed traffic of complex network architectures into meaningful application dependencies, so that customers can spot latencies or inefficiencies that negatively contribute to application performance, infrastructure load, and network-related costs. With this enhanced functionality, organizations can monitor their entire network across varying operating systems, providing complete visibility.
“At Datadog, we are pushing the boundaries of what it means to holistically monitor Windows Server workloads by analyzing every aspect of their health, from infrastructure, application, network through to security,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, Vice President, Product and Community, Datadog. “With this latest development, we’re excited to create new opportunities for all Windows Server customers to isolate the root cause of their app issues, whether they be upstream code errors, heavy network traffic, or regional outages.”
“Assessing the performance of crucial application traffic in our Windows environment used to be very difficult,” said Alex Kanevsky, Lead Architect at Generali Global Assistance. “With Datadog Network Performance Monitoring, we can quickly determine if our network is at fault for slow traffic or low connectivity before our applications are affected, so that insuring travel is a seamless experience for our customers.”
“At AWS, we are focused on ensuring that Windows applications can achieve digital transformation goals customers have set,” said Fred Wurden, General Manager, Amazon EC2 Enterprise & Benchmarking, AWS. “Now with Datadog Network Performance Monitoring, we can empower our shared customers to manage their complex service dependencies, improving the digital experience for all.”
According to Gartner, Inc., “a well-performing network is critically important to digital business projects; however, the level of network agility and visibility often fails to meet the requirements of these initiatives.”
Datadog NPM enables monitoring of distributed traffic across on-premises and cloud environments, so organizations are able to:
- Spot cost and performance bottlenecks: identify unexpected or costly communication between services and cloud regions to quickly detect where network connectivity and latency issues are concentrated.
- Isolate the root cause: determine when application and infrastructure issues are the root cause of faulty dependencies, misconfigured connection pooling, or cloud provider outages.
- Visibility for every engineer: visualize connection data at the application layer, so it can be analyzed and understood by network, application, and Reliability Engineers alike.
