Datadog Database Monitoring now supports all SQL Server and Azure database services from Microsoft.

Datadog Database Monitoring finds slow queries, bottlenecks and incorrect indexes. Microsoft and Datadog recently collaborated to support SQL Server and Azure database services in Datadog Database Monitoring. Joint customers now have a quick way of monitoring databases with Datadog.

SQL Server and Azure

Microsoft Azure provides multiple managed database services. The tech giant takes care of database security, maintenance and updates. In addition, Microsoft develops SQL Server, one of the world’s most popular database management systems.

Datadog Database Monitoring allows users to monitor the databases of multiple environments in a central location. It generally doesn’t matter where the database is located. A cloud database managed by Microsoft can be monitored in the same dashboard as the database of an on-premises server.

Datadog monitors better than Microsoft

The solution is interesting for organizations with a diverse infrastructure. In addition, Datadog offers comparatively deep insights into database performance. If you want to find out where bottlenecks arise, the solution has an answer.

Some insights are more valuable than the statistics from database service providers like Microsoft. Hence, Datadog is equally valuable as a monitoring tool for the databases of a single site or service provider.

“We launched Database Monitoring last year because we wanted to help our customers reduce database costs, troubleshoot performance inefficiencies and increase collaboration between engineers and database administrators”, said Omri Sass, group product manager of Application Performance Monitoring at Datadog.

“By adding support for SQL Server and Azure database services, Microsoft users are better able to accomplish these goals and discover and implement the right database improvements while saving time communicating and reconciling information.”
