Datadog on...

Let's Learn Together

In the process of building a monitoring and analytics platform that ingests trillions of data points a day, Datadog has learned many lessons about scalable, distributed systems in the cloud. We'd like to share those experiences with our community in this series: "Datadog on..."

Each episode will offer a conversation with the engineers who build Datadog. They'll share real-world experiences architecting, building, operating, and monitoring modern systems giving you actionable information you can apply at your organization. With plenty of time left for Q&A, we'd like you to join the discussion.
