Gaining a Competitive Edge with Modern Infrastructure Monitoring

AllCloud Blog:
Cloud Insights and Innovation

Operating in today’s dynamic and cloud-centric landscape, organizations face the constant challenge of balancing innovation, growth, and customer experience with the complexities of managing their AWS infrastructure. Traditional monitoring, as I’ve observed through many years in the cloud industry, tends to be insufficient, leading to reactive solutions and delayed innovation. To truly thrive in this cloud-centric era, organizations require modern infrastructure monitoring solutions.

This is where AllCloud, a Datadog Gold Tier Reseller Partner and a 2023 DPN EMEA Partner of the Year, steps in. With over a decade of expertise serving 150+ satisfied customers, AllCloud is recognized as the most experienced Datadog partner in EMEA. Our dedicated team of AWS cloud monitoring experts is committed to providing you with the personalized attention and support you require to maximize the value of Datadog. This partnership extends beyond technology, with both companies sharing a deep commitment to customer success.

Without a robust cloud monitoring solution, AWS customers face significant challenges in proactively detecting and resolving performance issues, optimizing resource usage, and maintaining a strong security posture. This reactive approach can lead to costly downtime, security breaches, and inefficient resource utilization, ultimately hindering innovation and growth.

Fortunately, Datadog, an industry-leading cloud monitoring platform, empowers AWS customers to overcome these challenges by providing comprehensive visibility, intelligent optimization tools, and proactive security monitoring. This powerful combination enables organizations to focus on what truly matters: building the future.

As companies scale, staying ahead of IT incidents becomes a juggling act. Gal Porat, Director of DevOps at Salt Security, understands this challenge all too well. Salt Security was looking for a monitoring tool that transcended basic alerts and offered proactive visibility and rapid troubleshooting for its API Security Platform. Datadog, with its robust cloud-native plugins, anomaly detection, and automated mitigation, proved to be the perfect fit.

Not only does it simplify service management for Salt Security, but it also empowers the team to continuously improve its service levels. In the current cloud-centric business landscape, integrating Datadog extends beyond improving operational efficiency—it’s about securing a pivotal competitive edge. By proactively preventing incidents and swiftly resolving them as they occur, Salt Security can now focus on delivering exceptional value to their customers.
