Zenoss announced the launch of its new monitoring capabilities for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) serverless compute instances. This enables customers to monitor the status and performance for serverless cloud functions across all regions.

Serverless applications are steadily growing in popularity, with one of the fastest-growing enterprise adoption rates for extended cloud services. But monitoring these ephemeral instances has become increasingly problematic, creating blind spots in organizations that deploy them. Zenoss Cloud uniquely enables comprehensive visibility into serverless applications in the context of the overall IT services.

“When the increasing norm is for ephemeral systems to exist for fractions of a second, performance monitoring becomes very challenging,” said Ani Gujrathi, chief technical officer at Zenoss. “Zenoss is laser-focused on meeting this challenge with service-centric monitoring for today’s extremely complex, dynamic infrastructures.”

Zenoss Cloud customers can now have a unified view of:

- Service-centric monitoring across all cloud and on-premises systems

- Full infrastructure modeling, including serverless instances and all other cloud and on-premises infrastructure

- Automation through integrations with other IT tools, including ServiceNow, BMC Remedy, Dynatrace, SaltStack and many more

- Support for Kubernetes and Docker, process monitoring, synthetic transactions and more

When serverless functions experience performance issues, application performance suffers. Zenoss Cloud enables customers to rapidly and easily isolate serverless function issues, providing insight into invocations, execution times, active instances, memory utilization, network egress metrics and error tracking.

Zenoss Cloud streams and normalizes all machine data, enabling the emergence of context for preventing service disruptions in complex, modern IT environments.
