Zenoss announced the launch of its Nutanix ZenPack, a monitoring integration that gives Zenoss customers the ability to view their entire Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) deployments as a single holistic unit, encompassing the Distributed Storage Fabric (DSF), server compute capacity and virtual network components.

Linked with Zenoss Service Impact, the Nutanix ZenPack gives users the ability to see when and where performance issues occur and pinpoint the services that rely on Nutanix infrastructure, greatly accelerating the ability of IT Operations professionals to perform root-cause analysis (RCA) and accelerate the mean time to resolution (MTTR) of issues or outages.

Nutanix has emerged as a front-runner in the integrated systems space and in 2016 was named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems for the second year in a row. Part of the appeal of the Nutanix platform is that it is hypervisor agnostic, supporting ESX, Hyper-V and XenServer natively. This allows companies to deploy new HCI resources into existing environments without disruption to existing virtualization platforms that may be in place.

ZenPacks are pre-packaged, customizable and extensible plugins used to extend the Zenoss Service Dynamics (ZSD) platform. They use standard APIs and protocols including SNMP, WMI and SSH to collect configuration information and provide deep system monitoring capabilities across new types of systems and applications. The flexible, highly extensible ZenPack model allows the ZSD platform to extend discovery, performance, and availability monitoring to new technologies quickly.

In addition to the Nutanix ZenPack, Zenoss offers a catalog of more than 400 ZenPacks covering physical systems, containers, cloud deployments, and applications.

“Customers are increasingly adopting Nutanix hyper-converged integrated systems, because of the speed and flexibility that they provide in provisioning and supporting enterprise applications and workloads,” said Brian Wilson, Chief Customer Officer at Zenoss. “We’re excited to work with this market leader and we’re proud to stand out as a scalable service assurance platform that can be adapted to every type of complex IT environment, from the application level to virtual machines, storage, hyper-converged and even cloud environments.”
