Zenoss Tames Complexity of Hybrid IT With Updated VMware ZenPack

New Capabilities Help Simplify Management of Virtual Data Centers

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/13 -- Zenoss Inc, the leading provider of unified IT monitoring and management solutions for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructures, today announced an update to the VMware ZenPack for monitoring and modeling VMware managed objects. As a component of the Zenoss Service Dynamics solution, customers gain insight into the health of their critical applications and services, and can pinpoint the root cause of performance and availability issues related to their underlying virtual data center components.

Data centers are becoming increasingly complex with the widespread use of public and private clouds and even "multi-cloud" methods of consuming compute, storage, and networking capacity. The modern data center is no longer static and under a single roof -- it is virtual, elastic, and highly distributed. With this more sophisticated and complex approach it is essential for IT operations teams to have a unified view of their services and applications, along with all the IT resources they depend upon for reliable delivery. Without this unified approach, IT loses the visibility and control they need to ensure the performance and availability of services to their business users.

Zenoss' enhanced VMware ZenPack gives IT operations staff the ability to view all of their virtualized resources, including ESX server, vSphere, and discreet compute, storage, and networking resources in a single console. The latest enhancements also improve scalability and reduce the resources required to operate the ZenPack. Combined with Zenoss' additional recently updated cloud ZenPacks (VMware vCloud, Amazon Web Services, OpenStack, and CloudStack), IT staff can now benefit from a unified view of their Hybrid IT environment and the health of its applications and services, all with a single solution.

"Highly virtualized environments are very dynamic and therefore challenging to monitor for proper service delivery -- that's challenge enough for IT Ops teams," explained Alan Conley, CTO of Zenoss. "Add private and public clouds, and legacy IT systems on top of that, and it's a recipe for subpar service levels and disappointed business users -- unless you're using a unified solution like Zenoss."

Additional ZenPacks Available for Zenoss Service Dynamics

  • VMware vCloud: Leverages native vCloud management APIs to enable in-depth monitoring of performance and availability of vCloud based applications and services.
  • Amazon Web Services: Discovers EC2 entities, monitors CloudWatch metrics and provides an overview of the regions and availability zones cloud resources depend on for reliable operation.
  • OpenStack: Monitors servers' health, performance and inventory to ensure reliable application and service delivery.
  • CloudStack: Monitors performance and availability of zones, pods, clusters, system VMs and VMs.
