Kaseya Launches SaaS Monitoring Tool For Hybrid Clouds And Distributed Computing Environments

Today, Kaseya announces the general availability of Kaseya Traverse, its SaaS cloud monitoring solution for on premise, private cloud and public cloud environments. The uniqueness of Kaseya Traverse consists of its ability to “traverse” a multitude of cloud infrastructures while delivering centralized, integrated reporting for the entire ecosystem in question. Whereas proprietary cloud monitoring solutions such as CloudWatch by Amazon Web Services deliver performance reporting and monitoring solutions specific to their own, native cloud infrastructure, Kaseya Traverse can be configured to monitor a heterogeneous cloud environment marked by the coexistence of several hosting technologies and platforms. The Kaseya solution provides a diverse range of performance monitoring and analytics on hardware, networks, applications and usage patterns as illustrated by the dashboard below:

Kaseya leverages an architecture designed for distributed analytics, data processing and data gathering that fittingly corresponds to the task of monitoring the infrastructures of dispersed, heterogeneous IT environments. The platform features SLA monitoring, issue identification and resolution with respect to application performance and machine learning-based analytics that identify true anomalies in traffic or usage related patterns as opposed to organic variations and cycles. Given that the current state of enterprise cloud computing almost invariably features some combination of on premise, private cloud and public cloud deployments, Kaseya Traverse is likely to be well received by customers that are seeking a centralized monitoring, reporting and analytics solution in contrast to an amalgamation of discrete reporting applications. Moreover, its ease of deployment as a SaaS application and distributed computing capabilities render it a particularly attractive cloud monitoring tool insofar as its architecture is designed with the specific needs of heterogeneous cloud computing environments in mind.


Zenoss Releases Updated VMware ZenPack To Enhance Cloud Monitoring

Zenoss recently announced an updated VMware ZenPack that enhances the ability of customers to monitor VMware managed objects. The VMware ZenPack is one of several of Zenoss’s products that allow IT administrators to monitor and manage on premise, virtual and cloud-based infrastructures by enabling visibility into application performance across a variety of virtualization platforms and ecosystems. The updated VMware ZenPack gives users the ability to monitor the ESX server, vSphere as well as compute, storage and networking resources from a unified management console that additionally boasts enhanced scalability in comparison with previous versions. Other Zenoss ZenPacks enable analogous monitoring of deployments on Amazon Web Services, VMware vCloud and OpenStack. The combination of Zenoss’s ZenPacks enable multi-cloud monitoring and management, particularly in the case of hybrid cloud environments where the unified infrastructure draws upon more than one deployment platform or vendor. The larger value proposition here is the ability to effectively monitor heterogeneous cloud platforms and to identify performance and root cause issues before they escalate. More than 35,000 organizations use Zenoss to monitor their IT operations and computing infrastructures.
