Zenoss for Cisco Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI)
For customers deploying Cisco NFVI, Zenoss provides a centralized management point for performance and capacity management as well as real-time, full-stack infrastructure monitoring. Cisco NFVI monitoring by Zenoss comes with out-of-the-box monitoring rules and thresholds for UCS integrated infrastructure. The deployment components include a combination of UCS and Nexus systems, the Cisco OpenStack distribution, and Zenoss for NFVI.
In NFV environments, orchestration software sets up "service chains." A service chain refers to the collection of virtualized network functions and their relationships in a particular part of a particular network. Any one enterprise organization might have dozens, hundreds or thousands of service chains. Service providers have this multiplied by some number of customers. Zenoss enables an NFV orchestrator to automatically initiate monitoring for NFVs as they are created and constructs impact services that reflect each set of virtualized functions. The result is automated end-to-end service assurance in constantly changing NFV environments.
