New Zenoss Open Source Project Powered by Docker

Control Center Extends Unified Monitoring and Analytics Platform to Revolutionize IT Operations for Cloud Infrastructures

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- Zenoss Inc., the leading provider of unified monitoring and analytics solutions for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT, today announced Zenoss Control Center, an open source project.

Control Center is an application service orchestrator that provides an out-of-band management system to the next generation Zenoss platform that is currently under development. Control Center is powered by Docker, a leading open source platform for building, shipping and running distributed applications, enabling DevOps application deployment agility.

Control Center adds a service management layer on top of Docker allowing it to orchestrate non-Zenoss applications in the same manner it orchestrates the next generation Zenoss platform. Anything from a simple web application to a complex multi-tiered distributed application stack can be managed through Control Center.

"Docker is a significant step forward in simplifying the deployment and management of applications on cloud infrastructures. By open sourcing Control Center, we hope to contribute key capabilities to the Docker community that will further this effort," said Alan Conley, CTO of Zenoss. "Our specific goal is to work with the community to develop a standard method for not only monitoring containers, but also the applications running in the containers."

Key Control Center features:

  • Simple HTML5 deployment and management UI with application topology view -- know where your apps are and how they are connected
  • Automated application discovery, configuration, deployment, resource management, availability monitoring and logging
  • Simple to manage application templates for rapid application provisioning
  • REST API for easy integration into other management tools
  • Native Zenoss Monitoring and Service Impact Support

@DevOpsSummit Stories
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
