Zenoss Inc.today released a new version of Zenoss Enterprise. The release eases the burden of managing and administering enterprise IT monitoring, providing companies with one product to discover, monitor, alert, and report. The company is backing Zenoss Enterprise implementations with a first guarantee of 50 percent or more cost savings on licensing, maintenance, and deployment compared to traditional products from HP, IBM, CA, and BMC.

According to Bill Karpovich, co-founder and CEO of Zenoss, "Companies are no longer willing to let their IT monitoring requirements be held hostage by vendors imposing exorbitant costs, too much complexity, and multi-product requirements. This marks a new day in enterprise IT monitoring -- customers get the functionality, support, and flexibility they demand at a price that makes sense.”

  • Normalization of Metrics Across Heterogeneous Technologies: A single, consistent view of monitoring information across Linux, Unix, and Microsoft Windows platforms that simplifies cross-platform management and enterprise reporting.

  • Scalable Secure, Monitoring of Linux/Unix Servers: Easy to deploy, agentless monitoring for Linux and Unix that doesn't compromise scalability or security.

  • Monitoring of Internal or External Web Services: A simple GUI-based configuration able to monitor any cloud-based service.

  • VMware vSphere 4 Support: Extended management capabilities for virtualization management, including support for vSphere 4 and the new vCenter Server.

  • Expanded Device and Applications Support: Turnkey plug-ins for more than 20 new target technologies include Linux, AIX, Nokia Firewalls, and Barracuda Anti-Spam appliances; Zenoss monitors over 100 technologies directly out of the box.
