In case you haven’t been paying attention, 2012 has been quite a wonderful year for Red Hat as they became the first open source company to cross the billion dollar revenue mark, launched Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3, joined OpenStack, announced the business model and pricing plans for OpenShift, released Red Hat Storage and held one of the best conferences of the year in Red Hat Summit and JBossWorld. As Red Hat continues to be the most trusted provider of Linux and open source technology in the world, Zenoss is proud to be a commercial open source company that actively participates within the Red Hat ecosystem.
In fact, at this year’s Red Hat Summit, Zenoss participated in Red Hat Storage Alley and the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) while providing for our own Zenoss presence. Zenoss actively supports our own open source project, Zenoss Core, with a mission to make it the most powerful open source monitoring solution in the world. Our commercial solution, Zenoss Service Dynamics, continues to enjoy record growth and adoption throughout Enterprises, Service Providers/MSPs and State/Local Governments.
As a Linux only distribution with the majority of our customers deployed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Zenoss takes pride in how we model, monitor, event and provide performance data for Linux. Our solution transcends the operating system and provides unified monitoring for applications such as JBoss, server, storage, network, virtualization, and more. The key to monitoring today’s datacenter or Cloud era is to move beyond elemental monitoring to service-based monitoring while being able to understand the dynamic nature of the infrastructure itself.
Throughout the month of August, Zenoss will be showcasing our capabilities to monitor your Red Hat Infrastructure. While I’d love to “spill-the-beans” and share with you all the innovative and disruptive thinking at Zenoss, that would be no fun now would it? Our plan is to showcase technology that is or will be available within our Zenoss Core open source project and Zenoss Service Dynamics commercial solution to provide a depth and breadth of monitoring that Red Hat deserves.
With all the changes occurring within virtualization across x86, applications, network, compute and storage, the time is right for Red Hat to conquer new challenges via OpenStack, OpenShift, Red Hat Storage and more. Meanwhile Zenoss is ready to accept these new challenges ourselves to provide Red Hat customers with an unprecedented ability to Transform their IT Operations from reactive to proactive, static to dynamic and elemental to service-based monitoring!
Please join me in this series of blog posts and webinars as we explore the wonderful worlds of Red Hat and Zenoss as we declare August as Red Hat Month at Zenoss!
For over 2 decades, IT Operations has been constrained by a monitoring paradigm rooted in the notion of elemental monitoring. Elemental monitoring consists of instrumenting nearly every aspect of a piece of IT infrastructure including CPU, Memory, Disk, and more looking for abnormalities ranging from simple min/max to behavioral analysis. However, within today’s complex world of virtualization, converged infrastructure, Cloud, and the birth of the programmable datacenter, Elemental Monitoring must yield to service-based monitoring. While service-based monitoring takes into account each individual element, it looks beyond these elements and understands the infrastructure in the context of the elements themselves. Zenoss is Transforming IT Operations by providing an open and scalable commercial open source monitoring solution that is built for this service-based paradigm via a unique model based and event driven approach to monitoring your Red Hat infrastructure.
In this 30-minute session you will learn:
- The benefits of modeling your Red Hat Infrastructure
- Agentless Monitoring of Red Hat Infrastructure
- Service-based monitoring and Service-Impact RCA
