Datadog achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Education Competency.

This status recognizes that Datadog has demonstrated technical proficiency and success in building solutions that support mission-critical workloads of customers in the higher education, K-12 primary/secondary, research and publishing sectors.

“At the Center for Translational Data, we leverage AWS to develop and operate large-scale data platforms to support research for cancer, cardiovascular disease and veterans’ health, to name a few,” said Bill Winslow, Director of Platform Engineering at the University of Chicago. “We operate a data ecosystem comprising over a dozen data commons that make over 10 PBs of data available to the research community. Datadog is a key component of our mission to have our data readily accessible by providing our team with the insight and visibility required to efficiently and effectively monitor our distributed and complex systems. Platform Engineering practices DevOps, SRE and SecOps, and Datadog is a critical tool to help maintain velocity while remaining accountable and responsible for the platform. We’ve gained incredible insight on our platform that has led to resolutions of long-standing issues (including capacity and performance).”

AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify consulting and technology partners with deep industry experience and expertise. Achieving the AWS Education Competency speaks to Datadog’s place within the AWS Partner Network (APN) as a member with a history of success in providing customers specialized solutions that align with AWS architectural best practices and that support the academic experience of teachers and learners, as well as the operational needs of administrators. To receive this designation, Datadog underwent an assessment of the security, performance and reliability of its solutions and validated its deep AWS expertise.

“By delivering real-time monitoring and security capabilities for AWS workloads, we maintain uptime for educational institutions so they can provide the best experiences possible to their students, teachers and administrators,” said Yrieix Garnier, VP of Product at Datadog. “Our team is proud to support these institutions and help them achieve their goals by leveraging the agility of the cloud.”
