Datadog is a monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, providing monitoring of servers, databases, tools, and services.

What can Zenduty do for Datadog users?

With Datadog’s Integration, Zenduty sends new Datadog alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the Datadog alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

Whenever Datadog triggers an alert based on a predefined condition, Zenduty will create an incident. When that condition goes back to recovered state on Datadog, Zenduty will auto-resolve the incident.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific Datadog alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
