Zenoss released expanded monitoring capabilities for OpenStack, the most widely deployed open-source platform for building and managing private and public clouds.

Started by NASA and Rackspace in 2010, OpenStack is now one of the most active open-source projects in the world.

The Open Infrastructure Foundation (OIF) reports that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought new levels of demand for OpenStack-based public and private clouds, increasing the number of cores deployed by 66% year on year. According to foundation statistics, more than 100 new OpenStack clouds have been deployed in the last 18 months, and the total number of cores under OpenStack control now exceeds 25 million.

Globally, 71% of service providers are either in production or plan to be in production with OpenStack in the next 12 months, and Microsoft has recently joined the ranks of platinum-level members of the OIF.

Zenoss initially released monitoring and analytics capabilities for OpenStack in 2014 and has continuously expanded those capabilities to become the leading monitoring platform for OpenStack. Zenoss provides full-stack monitoring and AIOps for public and private OpenStack clouds and the most popular OpenStack components, including Nova, Neutron, Cinder, Swift and more. This features service impact modeling and root-cause analysis as well as the overall OpenStack state, including all tenants.

"The world of modern applications continues to transition toward ephemeral systems and automation," said Ani Gujrathi, CTO for Zenoss. “In this world, it’s even more critical to have full-stack visibility to ensure application health and performance, and Zenoss continues to lead the way in that endeavor.”

Zenoss Cloud is the leading AI-driven full-stack monitoring platform that streams and normalizes all machine data, uniquely enabling the emergence of context for preventing service disruptions in complex, modern IT environments, including those built on OpenStack and Kubernetes. Zenoss Cloud leverages the most powerful machine learning and real-time analytics to give companies the ability to scale and adapt to the changing needs of their businesses.
