In large IT organizations, monitoring tool sprawl has become so commonplace that it is not unusual for administrators to be monitoring 10 to 50 solutions across various departments.
Unified monitoring solutions like Zenoss offer a cost-effective alternative for those seeking to rein-in monitoring inefficiencies. By establishing a central nerve center to collect data from multiple tools and managed resources, IT groups can gain visibility into the end-to-end availability and performance of their infrastructure. This helps simplify operational processes and reduce the risk of service disruption for the enterprise.
This paper can help you make an effective business case for moving to a unified monitoring solution. Key considerations include:
• The direct costs associated with moving to a unified monitoring tool• The savings potential of improved IT operations through productivity and efficiency• The business impact of monitoring tools in preventing and reducing both downtime and service degradation

Backup is just not about storage. It’s the intelligence on top of storage. Typically when businesses think of backup, they see it as a simple data copy from one location to another. Traditional file systems would suffice if the need were to just copy the data. But backup is the intelligence applied on top of storage where data can be put to actual use. Imagine the ability to use backup data for staging, testing, development and preproduction deployment. Traditional file systems are not designed to meet such complex requirements.
With the advent of information technology, more and more organizations are relying on IT for running their businesses. They cannot afford to have downtime on their critical applications and need instant access to data in the event of disaster. Hence, a new type of file system is necessary to satisfy this need.
VembuHIVETM manages the metadata smartly through its patent-pending technology, in a way that is agnostic to the file system of the backup, which is why we call VembuHIVETM, a file system of file systems. This helps the backup application to instantly associate the data in VembuHIVETM to any file system metadata, thereby allowing on-demand file or image restores in many possible file formats. The data and metadata storage, harness cluster file system and computing and storage.
This is a really powerful concept that will address some very interesting use cases not just in the backup and recovery domain but also in other domains, such as big-data analytics.
The key to the design of VembuHIVETM is its novel mechanism to capture and generate appropriate metadata and store it intelligently in a cloud infrastructure. The increment data (the changes with respect to a previous version of the same backup) are treated like versions in a version control system (CVS, GIT). This revolutionary way of data capture and metadata generation provides seamless support to a wide range of complex restore use cases.
In helping hundreds of companies migrate everything from
single applications to full data centers, we’ve developed an extremely thorough
migration process. Read this white paper to learn from our 16+ years of
Either your company is in the process of moving to the
cloud or will be in short order. This truth can be an opportunity to unlock all
those dreamed-about cloud benefits, or it can lead you into the cloud-washing
trap so many companies get stuck in. The difference is simple—the right cloud
migration plan. It can take many different shapes, but, just like the best
companies, the right plan is always unique and always personal.
So you’ve invested in virtualization - now what does it take to make
that virtual environment hum? Before, during and after deploying, you
need a modern monitoring solution to ensure you’re getting the most of
your investment. We’ve compiled the 5 keys for conquering downtime and
achieving virtualization bliss.
Zenoss makes managing virtualized environments and virtualization
monitoring easy and less expensive. The Zenoss hybrid IT monitoring
platform allows you to comprehensively monitor resource performance and
availability across the entire stack, including network, storage,
applications and more, regardless of physical or virtual location.
SvSAN is a software-defined storage solution designed to run on
two or more servers. It is uniquely architected with the combination of a light
footprint, availability out-of-the-box, uncompromising performance and
centralized management deployment across a remote and branch office
SvSAN eliminates the need for a physical SAN which are costly,
complex and present a single point of failure. With high availability,
out-of-the-box business critical applications and IT services suffer no
downtime and the removal of a SAN along with the low cost of commodity servers
and storage lowers IT acquisition and operating cost. Thousands of large
organizations and SMEs across 72 countries have already chosen SvSAN to
modernize their IT infrastructure.
This white paper discusses
the latest product release of StorMagic SvSAN and the common IT challenges that
can be resolved by deploying StorMagic SvSAN in your organization.
