Cloud-monitoring firm Datadog now supports Azure Resource Manager, Microsoft’s unified product for controlling all pieces of an application’s infrastructure from a single screen, Datadog said.
“Microsoft feels Resource Manager is a better way to build and control cloud apps, and we’re catering to that,” said Daniel Langer, a Datadog product manager, in an interview. Microsoft is urging Azure users to move to away from the so-called classic APIs to the more modern Resource Manager, earlier this month releasing tools to assist in that migration.
Datadog provides detailed stats and graphics reflecting metrics on application components and cloud usage, including CPU, network and storage use, Langer said. It’s also available for Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform.
Support for Azure Resource Manager is included at no extra charge for current Datadog subscribers. Subscriptions cost $15 per host.
