The task of managing many ongoing technology projects, coupled with the need to continuously amend and improve systems for meeting reporting requirements, sometimes serves as an obstacle for enterprises in implementing Continuous Delivery practices for the database. Yet, enterprises taking advantage of modern, effective DevOps for Database solutions find that it's possible to implement the same Continuous Delivery best practices, which prove valuable in application development, for the database, enabling true database automation that actually mitigates the risk of human error while simultaneously speeding development cycles. The end result is less downtime, fewer errors, and a reduction in development costs ...
Datadog announced Notebooks, a new interactive environment that helps DevOps teams explore application performance data, create reproducible postmortems, build runbooks, and document infrastructure.
This will allow teams to investigate problems together, pinpoint the issues, and detail resolutions for future reference all in one place.
“Troubleshooting application issues and documenting postmortems has been a challenge for all of our customers” said Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer at Datadog. “With Notebooks dev and ops teams can easily explore metrics, detail and share their findings in a collaborative way, then distribute the information all within the Datadog platform.”
Notebooks will replace the need for multiple points of reference such as notes, wikis, documents, screenshots and emails with a centralized location to build a complete narrative around incidents. Users can add live graphs and markdown cells to their postmortems in order to explain what occurred, why it happened, and what was done to remedy the situation for future reference.
