The benefit for end users is that Zenoss now offers detailed monitoring of Network infrastructure, Linux/Unix servers and Windows servers through an integrated product. Zenoss offers visibility across layers and platforms along with visibility across monitoring perspectives including: configuration discovery, availability monitoring, event management, performance monitoring and change history.
"Our goal is to make it easy for medium-sized organizations to monitor their entire infrastructure through an integrated, open source product," said Bill Karpovich, Co-Founder & CEO of Zenoss. "To achieve this, strong instrumentation of Windows-based systems is essential." Specific capabilities included in Zenoss's Windows collection module include:
-- Agentless deployment (no new software required on managed servers)
-- Centralized collection, correlation, display and notification of Windows events
-- Automatic discovery of Windows services
-- Availability monitoring of Windows services
-- Template-based configuration
Mark Hinkle, Editor-in-Chief of LinuxWorld Magazine, added, "Zenoss is taking open source monitoring to a new level. Strong cross-platform coverage in an integrated product makes Zenoss an excellent candidate for broad adoption."
