Zenoss Announces New Capabilities for Google Cloud Platform


Zenoss Inc., a leader in software-defined IT operations, announced the release of the Google Cloud Platform ZenPack, which expands capabilities for IT operations management to enterprise hybrid cloud environments that leverage Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

In April, Zenoss announced that it had joined the Google Cloud partner program.  With the new ZenPack for Google Cloud infrastructure, Zenoss adds tremendous value to clients by integrating the monitoring of hybrid cloud environments leveraging GCP with any IT infrastructure an organization may use - adding to robust multicloud capabilities Zenoss already supports with Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.

"Enterprises are continuing rapid adoption of cloud and leveraging multicloud environments," said Brian Wilson, Zenoss chief customer officer. "With the release of Zenoss Cloud and the additional monitoring capabilities for Google Cloud,  Zenoss enables IT organizations to monitor hybrid cloud environments leveraging GCP with any IT infrastructure an organization may support."

The GCP ZenPack enables enterprises to monitor the health, status and performance of GCP compute instances and Kubernetes clusters.  Zenoss can map out the relationships between critical components of GCP projects so customers can instantaneously pinpoint issues when they occur and provide insight into additional affected components and services. Users running the GCP ZenPack can stay ahead of problems before they occur by monitoring:

  • CPUs (Instance CPU utilization)
  • Disk (Throughput, throttled disk throughput, IOPs)
  • Network (Total network and firewall throughput and packet rate)
  • Container (CPU, disk and memory usage)

The release of the GCP ZenPack follows closely behind the  announcement of Zenoss Cloud, the company's next-generation cloud-native SaaS offering. Zenoss Cloud enables businesses to prevent IT outages and optimize cloud and on-premises systems as they undergo digital transformation, a business requirement for the survival of most companies across all industries. 

Powered by the cutting-edge GCP, Zenoss Cloud leverages the most powerful machine learning and real-time analytics of streaming data to give companies the ability to scale and adapt to the changing needs of their businesses. All components of GCP are also FedRAMP certified, taking advantage of Google Cloud's world-class security, delivering a best-in-industry security posture.
