Zenoss and DLT Solutions Partner to Bring Open Source IT Management Solution to Federal Agencies

ANNAPOLIS, MD, August 21, 2007 - Zenoss Inc., the fastest-growing open source IT management company, today announced a new strategic partnership through which DLT Solutions will offer Zenoss' commercial open source IT monitoring solution to its public sector customers. The addition of Zenoss Enterprise enhances DLT Solutions' best-of-class software offerings, which includes solutions from Red Hat, Oracle, and Symantec, to federal, state and municipal governments and businesses.

DLT Solutions, the leader in software sales in the public sector, will expand its open source offerings with the addition of Zenoss Enterprise to its portfolio. By building on the momentum already begun by their partnership with Red Hat, the companies are enabling their customers to move up the open source stack and provide solutions for a broader set of IT business issues.

"DLT recognizes that our customers are managing increasingly complex IT environments on limited budgets, and we continually look for new ways to help them with their issues," said Rick Marcotte, President & CEO, DLT Solutions, Inc. "We have built an open source practice around Red Hat to address those needs. Zenoss is a logical addition to that, and we see great value for our customers in their open source IT monitoring solution."

"We are excited about this partnership and the addition of Zenoss Enterprise to the GSA and SEWP buying vehicles," said Zenoss CEO and Co-Founder, Bill Karpovich. "We are committed to the success of DLT in helping meet their customers' IT management needs. With Zenoss Enterprise, DLT's customers can easily and affordably manage their entire IT infrastructures, while receiving professional support and legal protection directly from the company who authored the solution."

DLT has deep experience in open source, serving as the largest government reseller for Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions. Through its partnership with Red Hat, DLT has provided the most-trusted open source and Linux system available to government agencies since 2005.

"Government agencies are continually seeking solutions that enable them to deliver improved services to their constituents, and they are increasingly turning to open source solutions to give them the flexibility, stability and security required to do that," said Paul Smith, Vice President of Government Sales Operations, Red Hat. "As a result, the use of open source solutions in government agencies is pervasive and will continue to gain momentum. Zenoss is contributing to that momentum by partnering with DLT to bring their IT monitoring solutions to government."
