"Microsoft Azure SQL Database and SQL Managed Instance are fully managed database services that feature built-in security controls, automated maintenance and are always up to date," said Ramnik Gulati, senior director, product marketing, data & AI at Microsoft. 

"The expanded support of Datadog's Database Monitoring product further strengthens this collaboration by providing Microsoft customers with deep insights into their managed and self-hosted SQL Server, PostgreSQL and MySQL databases, enabling them to build and scale workloads with confidence," added Gulati.

Notable Datadog Database Monitoring features for Microsoft SQL Server and Azure database platforms include valuable query metrics, explain plan analysis, and centralized query, database and infrastructure metrics.

"We launched Database Monitoring last year because we wanted to help our customers reduce database costs, troubleshoot performance inefficiencies and increase collaboration between engineers and database administrators," said Omri Sass, group product manager of application performance monitoring at Datadog. 

"By adding support for SQL Server and Azure database services, Microsoft users are better able to accomplish these goals and discover and implement the right database improvements while saving time communicating and reconciling information."
