Dartmouth College Deploys Zenoss to Effectively Manage Complex IT Infrastructure

College Ensures Service Availability, Decreases Costs in Rapidly Changing Education Environment

Austin, TX – December 16, 2014 – Zenoss Inc., the leading provider of unified monitoring and analytics solutions for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructure and applications, today announced Dartmouth College has deployed Zenoss Service Dynamics to monitor its campus-wide IT infrastructure. The digital classroom gives students and faculty unprecedented learning opportunities. However, it also places high demands on IT operations teams at institutions of higher learning, who must manage ever-increasing system complexity. Solutions that increase IT operational efficiency and reduce downtime are now a "must-have" in educational environments, just as they are in corporate enterprise IT environments. "Maintaining our IT infrastructure requires a varied range of tools and technologies. Zenoss provides a single, central view across our entire IT infrastructure, helping us ensure service availability and reduce IT costs campus-wide," stated David Steiner, System Manager, Dartmouth College. "Having an automated system that alerts the right chain of command is a huge differentiator for our team. Zenoss unified monitoring has truly been a game-changer in terms of employee and overall satisfaction." Dartmouth adopted unified monitoring in order to better manage ongoing high demands on data center services and allow for maximum flexibility as they transition their data center infrastructure to the cloud. "In educational environments, because there are so many mission-critical applications, including courseware, streaming video and video conferencing, and facility management applications for surveillance, security, and climate control, quickly identifying root causes and rapidly restoring service is vital," stated Brian Wilson, Senior Vice President of Customer Success at Zenoss. "Unified monitoring is a key component for ensuring application service delivery and optimal infrastructure performance and availability. The insight Zenoss provides allows IT teams to identify potential problems and remediate them before they become campus-wide IT disruptions." Available as an on-site or cloud-based service, Zenoss Service Dynamics provides unified, automated performance and availability monitoring and event management for any organization’s entire IT infrastructure. Robust APIs facilitate easy integration with provisioning systems, service desk applications, CMDBs, and orchestration systems, enabling a holistic approach to managing IT service delivery.
