Zenoss Unifies Monitoring For VCE Vblock

Latest product release addresses needs of most advanced data centers


Austin, TX – March 05, 2013 – Zenoss, the leading provider of unified IT monitoring and management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructures, today announced that its latest release of Zenoss Service Dynamics supports EMC storage via the Storage Networking Industry Association's (SNIA) Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S). Customers are now able to monitor VCE Vblock systems, one of the industry’s most advanced converged infrastructure solutions, alongside other critical components of their IT infrastructure, using a "single pane of glass" unified solution from Zenoss.

"Converged infrastructure is at the cutting edge of data center automation and private cloud computing," said Chris Smith, CMO at Zenoss. "The challenge for organizations is to monitor and manage the critical IT services being delivered by these complex systems. They’re investing to achieve operational efficiency, lower costs, and improve business agility, and Zenoss was built from the ground up to address these modern data center challenges."

With Zenoss Service Dynamics 4.2.3, organizations with VCE Vblock can now:

  • Publish and share proof that Vblock-hosted services are meeting expected Service Level Agreements;
  • Share resource utilization data with business units and customers, who may otherwise be hesitant about relying on pooled resources;
  • Focus IT resources on application service delivery;
  • Increase overall resource utilization for more cost-effective deployment of IT resources;
  • Implement repeatable, automated service provisioning processes and thereby delivering IT "at the speed of business;"
  • Use open interfaces to integrate Zenoss-enabled service monitoring into service desk ticketing, CMDB, and other IT operations systems at minimal cost.
