With Datadog unveiling their Synthetics product (https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/introducing-synthetic-monitoring/), we at Relay42 are considering moving out of Pingdom.

The rationale is simple:

  • 90% of our monitoring is on Datadog, apart from the external requests. It'd be nice to identify regional issues in one place, so this is great in our monitoring consolidation efforts.

  • The lack of a non-community Terraform provider for Pingdom

We have yet to get in the beta and test it out but we feel very excited about this announcement.
