Zenoss | March 20, 2023
Zenoss Inc., the leader in AI-driven full-stack monitoring, today announced it has released streaming data monitoring for Kubernetes, the most widely deployed open-source orchestration platform used to manage containerized applications. This real-time monitoring of Kubernetes streaming data is part of a broader set of initiatives focused on cloud-based monitoring, which enables visibility for ephemeral systems that cannot be effectively monitored by traditional monitoring tools.
Kubernetes was designed by Google in 2014 and donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in 2015. It has become the de facto standard for running containers in production at scale, including in cloud environments such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. Also known as K8s, Kubernetes is supported by a community of professional programmers and coders from around the world. There have been over 2.8 million contributions to Kubernetes made by companies. Along with containers, Kubernetes has emerged as a primary technology for modern cloud-native workloads. According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, organizations using or evaluating Kubernetes increased from 78% in 2019 to 96% in 2022.
Zenoss initially released monitoring and analytics for Kubernetes in 2018 and has delivered continuous innovation to become a leading monitoring platform for container-based environments. Zenoss provides full-stack monitoring and AIOps for public and private clouds, as well as for all on-prem IT infrastructure. The platform provides a view of containerized applications in the context of the broader infrastructure. This provides a common view for IT Operations, DevOps, DevSecOps, and business-level users.
In addition to previously existing capabilities, Zenoss monitoring for Kubernetes now provides:
Monitoring insights for Kubernetes clusters in a single pane of glass along with the broader infrastructure for K8s deployments in AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, as well as in private or hybrid clouds and locally hosted environments
Secure, cloud-based monitoring with zero install
Data collection and analytics in under five minutes
Visibility into the health and performance of nodes, services, pods, containers, namespaces and more
Intelligent dashboards with out-of-box templates
Smart View, actions and notifications
"There is a significant shortage of visibility into health and performance in these highly complex container orchestration environments," said Trent Fitz, chief product officer for Zenoss. “Just as application developers have adapted to be more efficient, scalable and automated, we are doing the same for monitoring these environments.”
Zenoss Cloud is the leading AI-driven full-stack monitoring platform that streams all machine data, uniquely enabling the emergence of context for preventing service disruptions in complex, modern IT environments, including those built on Kubernetes. Zenoss Cloud leverages the most powerful machine learning and real-time analytics to give companies the ability to scale and adapt to the changing needs of their businesses.
Zenoss works with the world's largest organizations to ensure their IT services and applications are always on. Delivering full-stack monitoring combined with AIOps, Zenoss uniquely collects all types of machine data, including metrics, dependency data, events, streaming data and logs, to build real-time IT service models that train machine learning algorithms to deliver robust AIOps analytics capabilities. This enables IT Ops and DevOps teams to optimize application performance, predict and eliminate outages, and reduce IT spend in modern hybrid IT environments. Zenoss is recognized in The Forrester Wave™: Intelligent AIOps Platforms, Q4 2022, the 2022 Gartner Market Guide for AIOps Platforms, and in the 2022 Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools.

NetApp | February 10, 2023
On February 09, 2023, NetApp, a global cloud-led, datacentric software announced the upcoming availability of the NetApp AFF C-Series, a new line of capacity flash storage options that provides low-cost all-flash storage, and NetApp AFF A150 is a new entry-level storage system in the family of all-flash systems of AFF A-Series which is ideal for Mid-size business and Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO).
The new NetApp AFF C-Series has flash performance while being cost-effective and efficient. This signifies that the total cost of ownership (TCO) is lower, and there is less space needed for storage. This family of capacity flash arrays is also available with ONTAP One, an all-in-one license that includes all NetApp software. ONTAP One is one of the most complete software suites on the market. Customers can modernize their data center by choosing the right storage (capacity flash, performance flash, or hybrid) for their VMware, database, and file workloads. This storage runs on NetApp ONTAP, and for a seamless hybrid cloud, the experience is managed centrally by NetApp BlueXP.
Additionally, NetApp announced its new portfolio storage program NetApp Advance, which assures best-in-class delivery for customer ownership experience and on-premises environments for future cost-effectiveness. This further gives customers flexibility and allows them to safeguard their storage investment from the C-Series, AFF A150, FAS systems, or other newly acquired AFFs. Furthermore, NetApp confirms that workload efficiency goals are fulfilled, or NetApp will fix this at no cost to the customer.
The NetApp AFF C-Series, comprised of the AFF C400, AFF C250, and AFF C800, provides guaranteed storage efficiency to improve an organization's storage, seamless scalability on-premises for performance, and best-in-class security with ransomware protection to keep critical data safe, protected, and available.
NetApp Advance is now available, and the NetApp AFF C-Series family and NetApp AFF A150 will be in March 2023. Additionally, in Q4 FY'23, NetApp, and Cisco plan to add these storage options to FlexPod, the best-integrated infrastructure solution on the market.
NetApp is a cloud-led and data-centric software company, it empower organizations to lead with data in the age of fast-tracked digital transformation. The company offers systems, software, and cloud services that help them run their applications well from the data center to the cloud, and if they are moving to the cloud, developing in the cloud, or making their own cloud-like experiences on the premises. In addition, NetApp helps organizations build their data fabric and securely send the correct data, services, and applications anytime, anywhere, to the right people and with solutions that work in many different environments.

GRC | December 28, 2022
Green Revolution Cooling (GRC), the leader in immersion cooling for data centres, announced today the launch of its first annual Data Center Sustainability Survey, which will gather feedback from industry professionals on what is working and where there is need for improvement.
Participants in the survey will be asked eight short questions about their approach to sustainability and how their organization is working to reduce its carbon footprint. GRC is also interested in gathering stories about sustainability efforts in these mission-critical facilities; the successes, setbacks, and anything else related to data center sustainability.
Some of these stories will be featured in GRC's webinar on February 15th at 11:00 a.m. ET. Participants whose stories are selected will receive a $100 Amazon gift card or a donation made to the Rainforest Alliance in their name. The Rainforest Alliance is an international non-profit organisation working to make responsible business the new normal at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests.
Results from the survey will not only help us better serve the industry, they’ll provide a much-needed benchmark for understanding sustainability in the data center ecosystem, providing insight to all of us in the industry on how to be the best stewards possible for our planet.”
