Zenoss Deepens Unified Monitoring by Extending Coverage for Dell and HP Rack and Blade Servers

New ZenPacks Help Relate Physical Infrastructure to Business Apps & Services

AUSTIN, TX - March 4, 2014 - Zenoss Inc., provider of unified IT monitoring and management solutions for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT, today announced the availability of a new ZenPack for HP ProLiant servers, and an updated version of the ZenPack for Dell PowerEdge servers. With these latest releases, Zenoss, adds comprehensive coverage for rack and blade servers which are commonly used for new private and public cloud computing deployments, including HP CloudSystem and Dell Active System converged infrastructure offerings.

Leveraging the on board tools provided by HP – Insight Systems Manager and Integrated Lights Out (iLO), and Dell – OpenManage Server Agent (OMSA), and Remote Access Controller (iDRAC), the ZenPacks automatically discover the servers, monitor performance, manage events, and expedite root-cause analysis. The ZenPacks also provide insight into business impact through real-time reporting of service disruptions to help IT Operations personnel prioritize the order of resolution. In addition, these ZenPacks provide out-of-band monitoring on KPIs including power consumption, thermals etc., while enabling remote restarts in case of operating system unavailability or a crash.

Data centers continue to evolve to accommodate more demanding and rapidly changing business needs. To effectively manage the delivery of business services, data center managers seek solutions that provide them with a unified view of all infrastructure components that support their services including servers, storage, networking, etc. Through its growing pool of 110+ ZenPacks, Zenoss offers coverage for a very broad set of technologies. There are also an additional 250+ ZenPacks developed by the Zenoss community that are available to Zenoss customers.

"With everything in the data center moving toward a dynamic and virtualized cloud environment, it’s more complicated than ever to connect the dots between business services, the software components, and the virtual and physical servers they rely on for uninterrupted service," said Alan Conley, CTO of Zenoss. "Our unified approach provides visibility into the full IT stack, enabling customers to identify and address issues before the business is impacted."
