As part of our continuing commitment to open standards and supporting a broad and varied ecosystem, we’re pleased to announce that Datadog has extended its cloud monitoring and security support to the new Arm-based Ampere A1 Compute offering on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
“We’re excited to extend Datadog support to the new Ampere A1 Compute shapes on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. We’ve seen a growing number of Datadog customers choose the Arm platform to improve application performance and lower costs,” said Jimmy Caputo, director of product management at Datadog. “With the Datadog Agent for Arm on OCI, Oracle customers can use Datadog to determine the best shapes for their workloads, track migrations from other compute platforms, and get a unified view into the health and performance of their environment.”

The Datadog Agent is a lightweight software application that can be installed on your OCI Compute shapes, including bare metal and virtual machine (VM) Arm-based Ampere A1 Compute shapes.
The Agent collects metrics, traces, logs, and other data from the system and your applications. It sends the data to Datadog, where you can analyze your system’s health and performance using prebuilt and custom views. You can also configure monitors to alert you proactively when an issue occurs.
