Zenoss announced the release of the Kubernetes ZenPack, which expands capabilities for IT operations management to enterprise hybrid cloud environments that leverage Kubernetes containers.

This offering enhances Zenoss to more effectively support Kubernetes clusters running in public clouds and on-premises data centers.

With the new ZenPack for Kubernetes containers, Zenoss adds tremendous value to clients by integrating the monitoring of multicloud environments leveraging Kubernetes technology with any IT infrastructure an organization may use — no matter where that infrastructure is located or how it is hosted. Alongside Zenoss' existing ZenPack for Docker environments, Zenoss now offers the most complete portfolio of extensions available to enable IT organizations to gain complete visibility into every technology their constituents depend on.

"Enterprise IT organizations are transforming to meet the dynamic needs of their businesses, and one technology that has seen sustained growth is containers," said Mike Lunt, VP of Engineering at Zenoss. "With the release of the Kubernetes ZenPack, Zenoss enables IT organizations to monitor hybrid cloud environments leveraging containers within the full context of an organization's IT stack."

Users running the Kubernetes ZenPack can stay ahead of problems before they occur by providing:

- Overall cluster performance monitoring

- Relationship mapping and health monitoring for Kubernetes nodes, services and pods

- Collection of performance metrics for Kubernetes clusters, nodes, pods and containers

- Customizable dashboards for top consuming containers and pods

- Service impact and root-cause analysis when issues occur

- Events and alerts from Kubernetes clusters

The Kubernetes ZenPack also integrates with cloud-based Kubernetes clusters, providing support for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
