Zenoss monitors NWN’s technology stack ranging from Cisco, HP, NetApp, VMWare and more for over 2500 customers worldwide

Austin, TX – September 23, 2014 – Zenoss Inc., the leading provider of unified monitoring and analytics solutions for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructure and applications, today announced NWN Corporation utilizes Zenoss to manage complex infrastructures, a technology stack from Cisco, HP, NetApp, VMWare, and more to deliver the most reliable services to its customers around the globe. “Our individual customers have different requirements and those requirements change at an ever increasing pace. In the past, with other tools, we found we just couldn’t keep up. We lacked the flexibility to deliver at the speed our customers required,” states Doug Syer, Vice President of Technology, NWN Corporation. “Being a Zenoss customer really opened our eyes. Now we can say yes more and we can deliver faster because Zenoss is so flexible.” NWN Corporation is one of the few national partners for Cisco and holds elite certifications with HP, NetApp, EMC, VMWare, Microsoft, McAfee and others. To best deliver an accessible, reliable IT environment to its customers, NWN offers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), wrapping together compute, network, and storage demands into a simple, scalable design. “I can’t overstate the advantage and necessity of having our critical events and data in one place. We worked hard to get people to understand the value of our proactive monitoring strategy and as a result have seen significant efficiency gains, fewer mistakes, and more satisfied customers,” adds Syer. Companies change things quickly as they want to adopt recent technology advancements in virtualization, converged infrastructure, and cloud platforms. While the efficiency of service delivery increases with these technologies, so does the overall complexity of the IT environment. This continues to drive the case for managed services. NWN Corporation is a leader because of the breadth and depth of service offerings. For the past three years, NWN has been providing customers with Voice and Video in the Cloud. NWN’s mature and reliable hosted communications solution, NWN Communications, is based on industrial-strength Cisco technology, coupled with unparalleled customer support.
