Datadog (NASDAQ:DDOG) stock is climbing higher on Thursday after the cloud monitoring and security company completed its acquisition of Cloudcraft.

The acquisition of Cloudcraft makes sense with Datadog’s focus on cloud monitoring. That’s due to Cloudcraft offering up visualization services for cloud networks. This allows for the creation of real-time diagrams that Datadog can use.

According to Datadog, Cloudcraft will continue to be offered to current customers. It also intends to keep selling plans to new customers. The major change to the service will be its integration into Datadog’s own platform.

Michael Gerstenhaber, Vice President of Product at Datadog, said the following about the acquisition:

“Hundreds of thousands of engineers have designed their cloud infrastructure with Cloudcraft’s clear and readable diagrams […] Combining Datadog’s real-time observability data with Cloudcraft will allow us to shift monitoring further left and support our customers’ success with cloud migrations, container adoptions or other structural changes engineers consider every day.”
