While orchestrated container environments are growing in overall adoption, they are also becoming increasingly time consuming and difficult to manage. To address this complexity and help companies more effectively monitor and secure their Kubernetes environments, Datadog has launched new platform enhancements specifically for Kubernetes users:
Container Monitoring: Datadog Operator for Kubernetes, Amazon EKS Blueprints Add-On, Helm integration and OpenTelemetry Span Ingestion support greatly simplify setting up monitoring in Kubernetes environments. With these enhancements, Kubernetes users can easily deploy and update the Datadog Agent without downtime, get deeper visibility into the health and performance of their dynamic infrastructure, and monitor their entire set of resources using Datadog monitors, dashboards and SLOs.
Application Performance Monitoring: APM Service Pages now include detailed pod information. This allows customers to quickly identify issues impacting their containerized applications.
Security: Using Cloud Security Posture Management and Cloud Workload Security, Datadog customers can now continuously monitor their Kubernetes clusters for critical misconfigurations, report on CIS benchmarks and detect attacks against Kubernetes infrastructure in real time.
