Monitoring and security platform for cloud applications Datadog announced that it helped smart parking and mobility solutions provider ParkMobile for monitoring, APM, and logging during its migration from an on-premises environment to a cloud-based environment on AWS.
To implement new monitoring and alerting frameworks
For the process of migrating its legacy on-prem infrastructure to AWS, the company needed to implement new monitoring and alerting frameworks to reflect the dynamic nature of their new cloud environment. Datadog provided observability into these new microservice architectures and Kubernetes clusters, powerful alerting tools and robust integrations.
Matt Ball, Chief Technology Officer at ParkMobile, said,
“In 2018, we made a strategic decision to fully migrate to AWS and sunset our data center. As we migrated our applications to containerized workloads on AWS, we quickly realized our legacy monitoring tools weren’t ready for this new Kubernetes and EKS based world. Datadog is intuitive and cost-effective, and it has allowed us to index all our logs, see them alongside our metrics, and trace our applications with support for the languages we use. We adopted Datadog in February 2020 and we were fully out of the data center by June. Datadog helped us utilize Site Reliability Engineering concepts, allowing us to implement meaningful SLIs and SLOs.”
ParkMobile helps people to easily find and pay for parking on their mobile devices, with solutions to quickly pay for street and garage parking without having to use a meter or kiosk.
