Zenoss Partners with DLT Solutions to Sponsor and Exhibit at Government Open Source Conference

Annapolis, MD -- October 15, 2008 - Zenoss Inc., a leading provider of commercial open source application, systems, and network monitoring software, along with DLT Solutions, a value-added reseller of industry-leading information technology products and services, will sponsor and exhibit at the Government Open Source Conference (GOSCON) Oct. 21-22 in Portland, Oregon. Zenoss will demonstrate its unique approach to software development with solutions that combine the best of all worlds - open source software, proprietary solutions, and expert point product and network monitoring.

“Zenoss is already delivering value to government agencies, including branches of the armed forces and the Department of Homeland Security, by providing them with an opportunity to save money while better managing growing IT infrastructures," said Phil Higgs, Director of Government Sector for Zenoss. “As a sponsor of GOSCON, we are proud to demonstrate that open source software such as Zenoss is the most responsible way to spend tax payer dollars.”

According to the Federal Open Source Alliance’s “Federal Open Source Referendum” study of Department of Defense (DoD), Federal civilian, and Intelligence IT executives - 71 percent of respondents noted that their agency can benefit from open source and 58 percent said they are more likely to consider moving to open source as they consolidate data centers.

“Increasingly, we are seeing our government customers move toward open source solutions due to its increased security, reduced procurement times, and large scalability that helps keep IT management projects on schedule and under budget," said Alan Partain, director of the Enterprise Platforms division of DLT Solutions, which is also the largest reseller of Red Hat to the public sector.

Zenoss provides a powerful alternative for IT systems management that delivers a complete solution for monitoring the entire IT infrastructure. Based on its award-winning open source SNMP monitoring solution (Zenoss Core); Zenoss Professional and Enterprise editions include many high-value capabilities which are key to mission critical deployments and provide government customers with the world-class support and professional services they rely on to speed deployment and ensure long term mission success.

Now in its fourth year, GOSCON stands unrivaled as an open source software conference targeted specifically to agency CIOs and management-level personnel, their planning, policy and procurement staff. GOSCON provides forums to explore both the business case and real-world applications for open technology to deliver the next generation of government services.
