Elastic at Datadog
Datadog is a SaaS-based infrastructure monitoring company that processes billions of data points every day, including metrics (CPU utilization, database keys, and queue lengths) and events (completed Chef job notifications, GitHub commits, and Docker container status). Storing this information and being able to make use of it in their Stream and Dashboards is challenging. They started with Postgres, but as their needs grew, they moved to Elasticsearch, which is now a core component of their infrastructure, indexing vast numbers of events every second.
In this talk, you will see how Datadog uses an Elasticsearch cluster to create a fast and efficient environment for thousands of customers.
