A well-designed cloud architecture is essential to ensure that the underlying infrastructure stays operational, within budget, and compliant over time. These days, organizations are rapidly spreading their infrastructure across a broad, complex mesh of interconnected resources and services. It can be difficult to make high-level decisions about the design and management of these systems. This is why many organizations are now turning to cloud infrastructure modeling tools. We’re pleased to announce that Cloudcraft—a powerful real-time cloud infrastructure modeling solution—is joining Datadog.

What is Cloudcraft?

Cloudcraft offers real-time visualization of cloud infrastructures, enabling users to build dynamic architecture models that detail configurations, cost, and inter-service interactions. Cloudcraft is optimized for cloud platforms, instantly analyzing service relationships to populate a system architecture diagram. When your architecture changes, Cloudcraft automatically detects the new infrastructure and updates your diagrams accordingly. Adding Cloudcraft’s diagramming helps developers use data to inform responsive, robust, and secure changes to production. Cloudcraft is also highly collaborative, enabling teams to easily share and edit diagrams online and then export to docs, wikis, and presentations.
