Zenoss Expands Unified Cloud Monitoring With Support for Citrix CloudStack

Heterogeneous Cloud Management Enhanced With Addition of Leading Cloud Computing Platform

SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwire – Nov 7, 2011) – Today at Cloud Expo, Zenoss, a leading provider of management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructures, announced the availability of a free and open source CloudStack ZenPack. The new ZenPack extends Zenoss Core to manage the open source Citrix CloudStack™, providing CloudStack users with a unified view of their cloud infrastructure.

Citrix CloudStack is a production-ready, free and open source cloud infrastructure platform that helps providers of all types deploy and manage simple, cost-effective cloud services that are scalable, secure and open by design. Zenoss’ ZenPack provides an additional level of management by tracking capacity and usage trends for the entire cloud, as well as alerting to changes in both physical and virtual infrastructure. Bringing this level of capacity monitoring for CloudStack into Zenoss’ unified status, performance and event monitoring of existing infrastructure allows CloudStack to be more seamlessly integrated into an organization’s existing operations.

Interest in building clouds, public or private, is on the rise. To ensure a successful cloud deployment, IT must have unified visibility and real-time awareness of their entire cloud infrastructure,” said Bill Karpovich, co-founder and CEO of Zenoss. “Zenoss’ work with Citrix is a natural fit for customers pursuing the full management and operation of robust private, public or hybrid clouds.”

Citrix CloudStack provides customers with the fastest path to the cloud by providing the most advanced software technologies for building highly scalable, highly reliable cloud computing environments. More than 60 large-scale production clouds have been deployed using the open source CloudStack, including GoDaddy, GreenQloud, KT, Nokia, Tata Communications and Zynga.

Citrix wants customers to have a choice as they build cloud infrastructures while ensuring that their cloud solution easily integrates with other cloud technologies,” said Peder Ulander, Vice President of Product Marketing, Cloud Platform Group at Citrix Systems. “Zenoss’ support of Citrix CloudStack will enable our joint customers to have complete control and visibility into their cloud-based IT infrastructure.”

Zenoss will be demonstrating the new CloudStack ZenPack at the Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, November 7-10 in booth No. 816.
