How do we work with you?
We can provide our Datadog experts as part of a cloud engagement on AWS or Azure. We have the knowledge built over many years of both Datadog and the AWS & Azure platforms.
Our UK-based consultants can work with your in-house team in an on-demand way for support and advisory needs around Datadog for AWS & Azure.
Datadog provides a range of functionality but the three areas that come up for our customers the most are:
Selection & Set up
Datadog has a range of tools with many different configuration options, all of which have a licence & cost implication. Helping you navigate this is one area that continues to come up, either for a new install or for a change to add more functionality.
Once you have chosen the tool set you want to set up the process for log ingestion and retention configuration is complex. If this is done incorrectly it can lead to problems with getting the real value from Datadog when you use the data for troubleshooting or analysis.
Cost of log analytics for processing and retention
For troubleshooting and analysis, you need a set of historical metrics to refer to. However, businesses can often get caught out by the sharp rise in cost as logs are retained for longer.
The cost of processing logs is low, and storage is quite low as well. But over your entire cloud estate if you want to retain everything for more than 30 days then you will need to agree on this with Datadog directly.
At IG CloudOps we can help you find the balance between the retention time you need to be able to troubleshoot issues and analyse performance and the costs associated with it.
Many DevOps teams have had to balance retention time and cost, but as your business scales, this can become even more of an issue.
With scale, Datadog can seem more expensive and harder to use. Separating out and defining your reports and the sources to show within them can seem like an impossible task.
We can help you balance scale and cost and cut through the noise to help you get the management information you need from Datadog to manage your cloud infrastructure.
Why choose IG CloudOps as your Datadog partner?
