Viptela and Zenoss Join Forces to Provide Software-Defined Network Monitoring
Viptela and Zenoss
today announced a formal partnership to enable joint customers to
centrally monitor Viptela Software Defined-Wide Area Networks (SD-WANs)
alongside the rest of their IT network within the Zenoss platform. The
integration of Zenoss and Viptela provides a unified view of health
status information from the Viptela vManage application in Zenoss to
make IT infrastructures easier and less expensive to manage.
Viptela's Director of Global Marketing, Lloyd Noronha, will present on
the panel titled, "Modern Technologies in the IT Ecosystem" on Thursday,
May 12, 2016 at GalaxZ 16,
Zenoss' annual user conference.
Many mid-sized and large enterprises need to connect tens, hundreds and
even thousands of branches and retail locations over the WAN. The
Viptela SEN (Secure Extensible Network) platform allows organizations to
"mix and match" private and public IP connections such as MPLS, wireless
LTE (News - Alert)/4G, broadband and Ethernet to meet application requirements based on
geographic location, bandwidth and whether they are based in the branch
office, campus, data center or cloud. The Viptela
vManage application provides configuration management and monitoring
to diagnose and remediate problems across WAN networks.
The combination of Viptela vManage with Zenoss provides a single
scalable architecture for monitoring SD-WANs and IT infrastructures in a
centralized and holistic manner to optimize their performance and
availability. From within Zenoss, IT and network operations personnel
can access real-time intellgence on the health of the even the largest
SD-WAN networks provided by vManage. This visibility includes:
A global view of both the Viptela SD-WAN and other network devices,
applications and IT resources
The ability to visualize within the Zenoss dashboard Viptela SD-WAN
networking and policy-based routing for optimizing application
Comprehensive health and performance metrics to detect, troubleshoot
and quickly resolve problems regardless of whether they occur in the
Viptela SD-WAN or another part of the enterprise network
"The extensible ZenPacks, or plugin mechanisms from Zenoss, are a
differentiator that has customers in key verticals including financial,
telecom and manufacturing integrating the two technologies," states
Patrick Emerson, Vice President of Business Development and Channels.
"With this connectivity to a single vManage device, Zenoss discovers
vEdge and vSmart devices, providing monitoring and alerting for hardware
elements which include fans, power supplies, temperature sensors and
much more that keeps businesses secure and free of disruptions."
"Together, Zenoss and Viptela enable enterprises to gain end-to-end
visibility for monitoring both their network and IT infrastructures,"
said Ramesh Prabagaran, VP of Product Management and Partnerships for
Viptela. "Centralizing health and performance data from Viptela SD-WANs
in Zenoss helps customers reduce management costs and resolve problems
before they can impact operations. We're pleased to be partnering with
Zenoss and integrating with their award winning product."

IT monitoring technology is trusted by more than 35,000 organizations
