Datadog announced the general availability of Datadog APM.

This new expansion of the company's existing infrastructure monitoring platform will enable development and operations (DevOps) teams to quickly troubleshoot issues in highly distributed, service-oriented applications that use microservices, containers, and run across hybrid cloud environments.

"We believe that application and infrastructure monitoring should be seamlessly integrated in hybrid cloud environments where code and infrastructure changes happen often and simultaneously," said Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer at Datadog. "With the new Datadog APM extension, enterprises will now be able to monitor every part of their service-oriented applications from infrastructure to code, finding the root cause of issues much faster."
