Zenoss Releases a New Survey on Private Cloud Infrastructures

A recent survey conducted by Zenoss shows that about 75 percent of respondents are currently building or operating private cloud infrastructures, with an additional 16 percent planning projects in the next 12 months.

Only 44 percent of the respondents have IT operations management software in place that can monitor physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures, while 72 percent of respondents are worried about guaranteeing business service delivery using cloud infrastructures, the report stated. The survey polled 114 VMworld attendees and was conducted by cloud management solution provider Zenoss.

“Organizations of all sizes and from all industries are moving to the cloud without a clear strategy for managing the performance of their cloud computing resources,” said Bill Karpovich, CEO of Zenoss in a company press release. “Whether businesses are using public, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructures, having a comprehensive IT operations and service assurance solution is critical to ensuring optimal service delivery.”

Offering the market's first service impact management solution that both unifies and automates impact and root cause analysis for IT services that span private and public IT infrastructures, Zenoss recently launched Zenoss Service Dynamics. As workloads migrate and relationships change, service providers and enterprises use Zenoss Service Dynamics to maintain visibility into the health of their hybrid IT services from a single console that is easy-to-configure and automatically updated in real-time. Zenoss is a provider of management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructures.

Recently, the company announced that Zenoss Service Dynamics now supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). As the IPv4 era draws to a close, the Company said some analysts are predicting rapid adoption of IPv6 in the coming months as the remaining IPv4 addresses may be used up by mid-2012. As enterprises and service providers roll out IPv6 networks alongside existing IPv4 infrastructures, both IPv6 and IPv4 servers will need to be monitored in parallel for some time.
