Zenoss, a provider of commercial open source systems and network management software, last week rolled out a new version of its product suite. The new release adds native VMware monitoring across the full virtualization infrastructure lifecycle. This latest version, Zenoss 2.3, now enables enterprise IT staff and cloud services providers to monitor their virtual and physical IT infrastructures with a single, integrated product that costs significantly less than traditional offerings.
“Two of the biggest issues currently facing IT are virtualization and shrinking budgets,” said Erik Dahl, CTO of Zenoss. “Zenoss 2.3 addresses both of these head on with a powerful monitoring solution for both physical and virtual environments that not only costs less to acquire, but also saves time and manpower through quick installation, auto-discovery of infrastructure assets, and drop-in performance templates.”
Zenoss Enterprise delivers functionality across the major IT management lifecycle disciplines (such as inventory discovery, configuration detection, network mapping, availability and performance monitoring, and event management) and across the full physical and virtual infrastructure. Integration of Inventory data in a central Configuration Database allows Zenoss Enterprise users to view all performance, availability, and event data with a single web console. The product also includes remediation, allowing Zenoss to take corrective actions automatically when problems occur.
