NS1 announced enhanced support for Datadog.

A new integration brings the power of real-time data and reporting to Datadog users for improved visibility and monitoring of applications at the distributed edge.

As IT complexity explodes, application and network teams are challenged to collect, visualize, and act upon the deluge of data from disparate sources. They need end-to-end visibility into real-time conditions and solutions that connect into existing workflows so that they can identify, triage, and troubleshoot issues quickly and make more informed decisions about application health and performance. Now, teams can monitor and report on NS1 services within the Datadog platform, providing a single source of truth for observability across the modern tech stack.

“With Datadog and NS1, companies can implement full-stack observability with automatic, real-time adjustments and insights to help navigate changing conditions across the internet, cloud, networks, and infrastructure,” said Danielle Russell, Director of Product Marketing at NS1. “NS1 now connects with more observability solutions so that customers can deliver consistently exceptional application experiences while driving efficiency and automation.”

This is NS1’s second integration with Datadog. The company’s first integration, released in 2016, allows customers to push Datadog monitoring data into the NS1 platform to automate application traffic policy decisions based on near-real-time alerts. With this second integration, Datadog users can now export from NS1 key data points for analysis and management, including query use over time, top zones by query volume, and monthly account usage metrics. An out-of-the-box dashboard makes it fast and simple to get started with data visualization within the Datadog platform. Teams can also tap into NS1’s Pulsar real user monitoring and resource availability data for greater network visibility. With these combined solutions, customers can easily provide all of their DevOps, NetOps, and SecOps users the centralized visibility they need to monitor application delivery reliability and performance, troubleshoot issues, and effectively manage resources wherever their users and applications are located.

Michael Gerstenhaber, Sr. Director of Product at Datadog, said: “The critical first step for users to access a web application is a successful DNS lookup. Using the NS1 integration to optimize DNS queries, manage costs, and catch security issues like DDoS attacks, developers will be able to deliver great digital experiences from start to finish.”
