Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose now supports streaming data delivery to a Datadog. This feature enables you to use a fully managed service to stream data to Datadog without building custom applications or worrying about operating and managing the data delivery infrastructure. Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose incorporates error handling, auto-scaling, transformation, conversion, aggregation, and compression to help you accelerate the deployment of data streams across your organization.

Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose is the easiest way to reliably load streaming data into data lakes, data stores, and analytics services. It can capture, transform, and deliver streaming data to Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Elasticsearch Service, generic HTTP endpoints, and service providers like Datadog. It is a fully managed service that automatically scales to match the throughput of your data and requires no ongoing administration. With Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, you don't need to write applications or manage resources.

This new capability makes it easier than ever to route your AWS log data directly into Datadog. With these logs available in Datadog, you can use them with Datadog Log Management and Datadog Security Monitoring to analyze the health, performance, and security of your cloud resources.

Visit the Amazon Kinesis Console to configure your data producers to send data to Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose and specify Datadog as the destination. Once set, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose takes care of reliable, scalable delivery of your streaming data to Datadog. To learn more, explore the Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose developer guide.
