IT is evolving. It isn't a rack of servers and network devices anymore. It doesn't have the traditional administrative roles any more. Why would we continue to use traditional monitoring? As more advanced solutions evolve, so must we. Zenoss started as an open-source project, and has evolved into a necessary tool for a hybrid IT environment. Infrastructure is not what it was - we now talk about containers, orchestration, and consumption models. Applications need to be aware, and 3 9's of uptime isn't the goal - it's the standard expectation. How prepared are you to manage your portfolio in your data center? On someone else's data center? On the cloud?
Chris Freeman joined NetApp in 2014 to assist in the transition from NetApp's previous monitoring solution to Zenoss Service Dynamics. Previous to NetApp, he helped determine best monitoring practices and designed new monitors for a large financial organization. He developed monitoring tools for a Fortune 50 company, and redesigned the SNMP stack into a consumable API.
