Austin, TX — August 28, 2012Zenoss, a leading provider of unified IT operations software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructure, today announced a new ZenPack for managing and monitoring Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0, a leading enterprise virtualization solution that includes Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor technology and management tools for both server and desktop deployments.

The Zenoss ZenPack for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization will be open sourced and made available to Zenoss Core Open Source users to provide continual refinement by Zenoss’ more than 100,000 community members.

  • Auto-Discovery and monitoring of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization infrastructure
  • Performance & Event Management
  • Dynamic visualization of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Infrastructure
  • Service impact and root cause analysis for workloads from virtual to physical infrastructure

"Zenoss' work with Red Hat is a natural fit for customers pursuing the full management and operation of robust private, public or hybrid virtualized infrastructures."

“As Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization continues to deliver value to enterprises around the world, customers require additional monitoring of their dynamic workloads,” said Geert Jansen, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Red Hat. “Zenoss provides compelling monitoring solutions for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization customers that include a service-centric view of the infrastructure, performance monitoring and event management needed to manage a customer’s IT infrastructure.”
