Zenoss Inc., a leading commercial open source provider of Unlegacy enterprise IT management products for virtualized and cloud-based datacenters, today announced the general availability of version 2.5.2 of Zenoss Enterprise featuring a new datacenter visualization capability, Datacenter View, and the ability to model and manage servers running the HP-UX operating system. Zenoss Datacenter View reduces the time IT managers need to identify and physically locate failed devices on the network with a rich mapping feature that drills down to the specific rack and slot location of even the most complex, virtual and cloud-based datacenter environments. As a result, IT managers have greater visibility into their network infrastructure and can minimize the risk of downtime by more quickly and precisely responding to issues.

Driven by a large, international media company customer who struggled to add location visualization to their management infrastructure using legacy tools, Zenoss Datacenter View allows users to integrate dynamic maps of datacenter floor plans, rack diagrams and device locations into their Zenoss monitoring interface, so they can quickly identify problem devices when systems issues occur and drill down to determine where the device is physically located in the datacenter. The Datacenter Views are integrated into the Zenoss model and are dynamically built, so as device locations are updated, modified Datacenter Views are immediately generated.

Additionally with this release, Zenoss Enterprise now models and monitors servers running HP-UX, the mission-critical UNIX(R) operating system powering HP Integrity and HP 9000 servers. The Zenoss model provides extended coverage for critical operating system resources including CPU, memory, interfaces, processes, and installed software. Zenoss uses the model to collect and display statistics on resource utilization - including CPU, IO, memory, swap, and disk space - and alert users to exceptional conditions with performance thresholds. Data collection is performed using SSH, so no new management agent is required.

“As our customers have increased the complexity and size of their datacenters by adding virtualization and cloud-based technologies, being able to physically locate devices as they fail can become problematic. The new Datacenter View capability was driven by the specific needs of our larger clients and is helping them better manage their constantly changing IT environments with Zenoss Enterprise,” said Kent Erickson, vice president product management at Zenoss. “Additionally, by expanding our support to include HP-UX, Zenoss continues to broaden its support for Enterprise customers”

Version 2.5.2 of Zenoss Enterprise with Datacenter View and HP-UX support is available now.
