NEW YORK, March 31, 2021 / PRNewswire / – 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 transparent network visibility into cloud environments, on-premises data centers and operating systems.
Datadog Network Performance Monitoring translates distributed traffic from complex network architectures into meaningful application dependencies, so customers can spot latencies or inefficiencies that negatively contribute to application performance, infrastructure load, and network costs. With this enhanced functionality, organizations can monitor their entire network on different operating systems, providing complete visibility.
“At Datadog, we push the boundaries of what it means to holistically monitor Windows Server workloads by analyzing every aspect of their health, from infrastructure, application, network to security,” said Ilan Rabinovich, VP, Product and Community, Datadog. “With this latest development, we are excited to create new opportunities for all Windows Server customers to isolate the root cause of their application problems, whether it’s upstream code errors, heavy network traffic or regional outages. “
“Evaluating the performance of critical application traffic in our Windows environment was previously very difficult,” said Alex Kanevski, Principal architect at Generali Global Assistance. “With Datadog Network Performance Monitoring, we can quickly determine whether our network is at fault for slow traffic or poor connectivity before our applications are impacted, so that travel insurance is a seamless experience for our customers.”
“At AWS, we strive to ensure that Windows applications can meet the digital transformation goals that customers have set for themselves,” said Fred wurden, Managing Director, Amazon EC2 Enterprise & Benchmarking, AWS. “Now, with Datadog Network Performance Monitoring, we can empower our mutual customers to manage their complex service dependencies, improving the digital experience for everyone. “
According to Gartner, Inc., “A strong network is critically important to digital business projects; however, the level of agility and visibility of the network often does not meet the requirements of these initiatives.1
Datadog NPM helps monitor distributed traffic in on-premises and cloud environments, so organizations can:
- Identify cost and performance bottlenecks: Identify unexpected or costly communications between services and cloud regions to quickly spot where network connectivity and latency issues are concentrated.
- Isolate the root cause: Determine when application and infrastructure issues are causing bad dependencies, misconfigured connection pooling, or cloud provider failures.
- Visibility for each engineer: Visualize connection data at the application layer, so it can be analyzed and understood by network, application and reliability engineers.
