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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
