Improve Your Database Performance With Amazon Aurora And Datadog
On Demand

If data is the new global currency, then databases serve as the 'vault' that surrounds and protects this valuable asset. Databases are a critical component of every organization’s tech stack, enabling everything from application development to customer experience to site reliability engineering. But traditional database monitoring acts in a silo, leading to slow investigations and frustration among teams that depend on that data.

In this Techstrong Learning Experience, Casey Culligan, product manager at Datadog, and Varma Gottumukkala, senior database specialist SA  at AWS, will show you how to gain a complete view of your databases hosted on AWS with Datadog.

You'll learn:

  • How to modernize your databases along with the rest of your AWS tech stack
  • How to troubleshoot your databases using alerting, wait events, blocking query data and application perspective with distributed traces and service metrics
  • How to optimize database performance with historical query metrics and explain plans

Sign up today to level-up your database hosting and monitoring capabilities with AWS and Datadog!
