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.

The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
