Datadog Announces General Availability of Private Locations for Synthetic Monitoring
As modern businesses build and iterate their applications, they rely on Datadog Synthetic Monitoring to ensure their customers have consistent and positive digital experiences. While Datadog’s existing managed locations are useful for simulating application behavior and discovering user experience issues, these are focused on public-facing websites and endpoints. When businesses need to test internal applications or simulate the behavior of applications that serve customers from discrete geographic regions, they require customized synthetic locations.
With the launch and general availability of Private Locations for Synthetic Monitoring,
“Since the launch of Synthetic Monitoring in 2019 on top of our monitoring platform, our customers have been able to constantly check the performance of their websites and endpoints across the globe, alongside logs, metrics and traces,” said
“After just two weeks of usage, we had three instances where Datadog Synthetic Monitoring immediately notified us of a problem stemming from an internal private location,” said
Private Locations for Datadog Synthetic Monitoring will also allow customers to:
- Deploy the private location as a container inside their internal environments through integrations with Docker, Kubernetes, ECS and other container integrations.
- Easily scale private locations by adding Docker containers, for more nimble proactive testing.
- Automatically correlate between Synthetic Monitoring and APM, logs, infrastructure metrics, and Datadog’s 400+ integrations.
