VictorOps Adds Integrations With Crittercism, Splunk and Zenoss

Increases Number of Enterprise Level Integrations and Continues to Add Support at All Levels of the Technology Stack

BOULDER, Colo., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VictorOps, a collaboration and incident management platform designed for DevOps teams, today announced the addition of Crittercism, Splunk, and Zenoss to its roster of enterprise level integrations. With these additions, VictorOps will continue to deliver enterprise ready support for large-scale infrastructures and applications.

The VictorOps platform maintains connections with an unlimited number of tools through its API and email integrations. The addition of Crittercism, Splunk, and Zenoss brings the number of first-class integrations to 11.

Crittercism Integration
Crittercism is the leading mobile application performance management (mAPM) solution that provides actionable, granular-level data for IT Operations, Product Managers and Developers. The integration of Crittercism with VictorOps, provides organizations a view into the overall health of their technology infrastructure. When an alert is triggered in Crittercism, an incident in VictorOps will be created so that customers can access VictorOp's on-call schedule management and incident notification system.

"The integration between Crittercism and VictorOps ensures that IT teams can work together efficiently and effectively to deliver high performing mobile experiences," said Justin Liu, Director of Business Development, Crittercism. "DevOps teams need real-time visibility into all mobile and IT performance metrics to quickly begin the resolution process and minimize any negative impact of disruptions on the business."

Splunk Integration
Splunk takes machine data generated by IT systems and technology infrastructures and allows users to query, analyze and monitor them in real-time. It detects anomalies and problems with applications, systems and IT infrastructures.

With the new Splunk/VictorOps integration, users can be alerted to statistically interesting or anomalous system issues in real-time notifying the right person with the right knowledge to solve the problem. VictorOps is drawing on the power of its platform to fully support the more than 5,200 licensed customers, including half of the Fortune 100, that are using Splunk.

Zenoss Integration
Zenoss is an enterprise IT operations platform that delivers unified monitoring and service analytics, enabling IT to proactively identify and address performance and availability issues before the business is impacted. Its widely deployed technology addresses the needs of physical, virtual, and cloud-based infrastructures.

The integration with VictorOps extends the Zenoss solution by sharing critical information from these hybrid IT environments with DevOps teams through event triggers and notifications. 

"Integrating DevOps more closely with infrastructure operations only makes sense in today's always up and continuous deployment culture," said Bill Karpovich, CEO, Zenoss. "By sharing information across the IT organization, beyond system administrator and IT operations teams, through these types of integrations, the efficiency of the organization will only increase and downtime will be reduced, which will ultimately decrease the cost of IT operations."

With these additions, the current enterprise class of integration includes:

  • Technical Support: SalesForce, UserVoice
  • Application Layer: Crittercism, New Relic, Pingdom, Splunk
  • Core Infrastructure: Amazon CloudWatch, Nagios/Icinga, Sensu, Zabbix, Zenoss

"We continue to listen to our community of users as a way to examine the leading technologies being used inside of enterprise IT departments," said Todd Vernon, CEO and co-founder, VictorOps. "Through these integrations we are bringing new levels of communication to DevOps as a way to ensure everyone on the team has access to all of the information. This approach makes it easier for people to be involved in getting to a solution yet still stay plugged into their normal lives."

VictorOps continues to look to add integrations like these that support both enterprise level infrastructures and applications. The goal is to provide more information about systems and infrastructures and deeper visibility to DevOps teams, which leads to smarter and more efficient decision-making.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
The Kubernetes vision is to democratize the building of distributed systems. As adoption of Kubernetes increases, the project is growing in popularity; it currently has more than 1,500 contributors who have made 62,000+ commits. Kubernetes acts as a cloud orchestration layer, reducing barriers to cloud adoption and eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises wanting to use cloud service providers. Organizations can develop and run applications on any public cloud, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
With container technologies widely recognized as the cloud-era standard for workload scaling and application mobility, organizations are increasingly seeking to support container-based workflows. In particular, the desire to containerize a diverse spectrum of enterprise applications has highlighted the need for reliable, container-friendly, persistent storage. However, to effectively complement today's cloud-centric container orchestration platforms, persistent storage solutions must blend reliability and scalability with a simple, cloud-native user experience. The introduction of Elastifile's CSI driver addresses these needs by augmenting containerized workflows with highly-available, scalable NFS file storage delivered via Elastifile Cloud File System...and with no complex, manual storage provisioning required.
