Datadog Announces New Senior Vice President of Alliances
NEW YORK, May 18, 2017 — Datadog, the essential monitoring service for modern cloud environments, today announced that John Gray will be joining the leadership team as SVP of Alliances. Gray comes to Datadog with decades of experience in sales, marketing, and partnerships for enterprise software companies. Most recently at New Relic, Gray’s past roles include executive roles at LivePerson, Oracle, BEA Systems, and Lotus Development. At Datadog, John will lead the Channel Partnerships business and contribute to a growing team of senior leaders across disciplines.
“Datadog presented an incredible opportunity for me to come and build its growing Alliances and Channels business,” said Gray. “The cloud market is growing quickly, driven by leaders like Datadog that recognize the power of fostering connections with partners and innovators.”
The cloud-monitoring service is also unveiling updates tailored to Managed Services Providers (MSPs) and Value Added Resellers (VARs). Federated Accounts will empower MSPs to seamlessly manage multiple accounts from a single login. New functionality also allows administrators to designate “read-only” access for certain users, enabling more of the team to take advantage of valuable data without risk to mission-critical graphs and monitors.
“Datadog enables REAN Cloud customers to get the most from their investment in AWS Cloud,” said Sri Vasireddy, Founder and Managing Partner of REAN Cloud. “The ability to monitor infrastructure and applications helps us increase uptime, deliver enterprise-grade business services in an efficient and integrated way, and quickly identify potential concerns.”
Federated Accounts are available for all Enterprise Datadog customers. The company also recently announced Datadog APM, extending visibility for DevOps teams beyond the infrastructure and into the code-level for service-oriented applications.
Datadog is the world’s leading monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, bringing together data from servers, databases, tools, and services to present a unified view of your entire stack. These capabilities are provided on a SaaS-based data analytics platform that enables Dev and Ops teams to work collaboratively to avoid downtime, resolve performance problems, and ensure that development and deployment cycles finish on time. Since launching in 2010, Datadog has been adopted by thousands of enterprises including Airbnb, Atlassian, Netflix, PagerDuty, Salesforce, Twilio, Warner Bros, and Zendesk.
