Prevent Risk and Monitor Kubernetes with Fairwinds & Datadog

Written By: Kendall Miller

What does Datadog do?

Datadog seamlessly aggregates metrics and events across the full DevOps stack so you can see all of the information you need in one place. By providing insight into what’s happening across systems, apps, and services, your DevOps team is empowered to act quickly based on real-time information. Datadog delivers this observability through over 450 built-in integrations.

Fairwinds Insights adds proactive observability

While Datadog already offers visibility into the health and performance of a Kubernetes environment, when you add the Fairwinds Insights integration to your Datadog deployment, it adds focus on your Kubernetes cluster and helps you identify issues before they turn into an alarm going off in your Datadog dashboard.

Why Datadog and Fairwinds Insights

Datadog helps you monitor what’s happening, providing comprehensive visibility into modern applications and helping you analyze log data in context and monitor the user experience (and much more). Datadog offers great real-time monitoring and observability for reacting to system issues, so you know when something is going wrong. Essentially, it acts like a fire alarm, alerting you to what’s going wrong right now, and helps you fix it quickly and keep your customers happy.

  • More reliable and efficient applications
  • A single pane of glass that you already live in (the Datadog dashboard) that includes Fairwinds Insights alerts, warnings, and cost analysis
