“With its extensibility, visualization and other capabilities, Zenoss 5 serves as a single platform for monitoring that can scale with enterprise applications and Big Data while simplifying operations so teams can focus on the critical business services they deliver,” said Jay Lyman, Research Manager, Infrastructure Software, 451 Research. “The latest version of the software enables customers to achieve scalability, flexibility and efficiency while reducing the cost of operations with simplified, unified monitoring as part of a more agile, DevOps approach.”

Zenoss 5 leverages state-of-the-art technologies including Docker, within the Zenoss Control Center, and Apache HBase within Big Data Hadoop to deliver high-fidelity monitoring at scale that gives IT operations a unified, service-centric view of application infrastructure and the intelligence required to quickly and cost-effectively avoid service disruptions.
