Motor Sport Legend Mario Andretti To Be Featured at Zenoss GalaxZ22

The Greatest Driver of the Century Will Reflect on Racing, Technology and the Future

AUSTIN, Texas – April 6, 2022 – Zenoss Inc., the leader in AI-driven full-stack monitoring, today announced Mario Andretti, considered by many to be the greatest race car driver in the history of the sport, as a featured speaker for GalaxZ22, the one-day virtual conference to be held May 19.

Andretti's achievements are legendary. He won the Daytona 500, the Indianapolis 500 and, ultimately, the Formula One World Championship — an unprecedented trifecta. No other race car driver has ever won all three titles. Andretti took the checkered flag 111 times during his career — a career that stretched across five decades and six continents.

"I am honored to have an opportunity to sit down with Mario to talk about his awe-inspiring and record-breaking career," said Greg Stock, chairman and CEO of Zenoss. "He is also a true pioneer of innovation in the sport of auto racing, and I look forward to exploring with him the impact the sport has had on other aspects of life, today and in the future."

Andretti was born in Italy and immigrated to the United States at age 15. At 19, he began racing stock cars in Pennsylvania, and that was the start of an illustrious career that saw the versatile driver compete and win in every discipline he entered — midget cars, sprint cars, dirt track cars, stock cars, sports cars, IndyCars, Formula One and Formula 5000.

He has received hundreds of awards and recognitions. Among the most prestigious, he was named Driver of the Century by Racer magazine, he was knighted by his native Italy, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., added him to its Living Legends list. And on the lighter side, but undoubtedly affirmation of his charisma and popularity, he was in the first Pixar "Cars" movie voicing himself, and GQ magazine named him to its list of the 25 Coolest Athletes of All Time.

Designed for newcomers as well as the most advanced professionals, GalaxZ22 will facilitate attendee collaboration to address the increasing challenges of modern IT environments and showcase customers who have developed elegant solutions that solve complex problems.
