In a bid to enhance observability for complex, distributed environments, Microsoft announced that an integration between Azure Arc and Datadog is now generally available. Building on an existing partnership between the two companies, the new capability allows observability of resources in Datadog dashboards.

Customers will be able to monitor connection status and the agent version of Arc-enabled servers, add Azure tags, spot Arc-enabled servers with the Datadog agent installed, and unify billing between Azure and Datadog. Microsoft first integrated Datadog’s ISV offering with Azure in September 2020, incorporating 600 unique integrations for large-scale app observability.

“For many customers, hybrid deployments are a durable and long-term strategy due to factors such as latency and compliance requirements, and we are committed to meeting customers wherever they are. With Azure Arc, we provide a consistent set of tools and services for customers to extend cloud technology across your distributed infrastructure. More than 12,000 customers are using Azure Arc, double the number a year ago. By partnering with organizations like Datadog, we are unlocking even more innovation and bringing Azure services into the tools our customers are already using,” wrote Pang Ngernsupaluck, Director of Product Marketing for Azure Hybrid.
