CareSource Selects Zenoss for Management of Virtualized IT Environment

Leading Health Plan Provider Optimizes User Experience and Web Application Performance With Zenoss Enterprise

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - Zenoss Inc., a leading provider of IT management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT environments, today announced that CareSource, one of the largest and fastest growing Medicaid managed care companies in the nation, has selected Zenoss Enterprise to manage its virtualized IT environment.

CareSource implemented Zenoss earlier this year to monitor their VMware-based virtualized infrastructure, analyze performance trends of their web services, and better predict and resolve potential performance issues with their applications. Zenoss Enterprise with its unified global dashboard, deep VMware monitoring capabilities, synthetic transaction monitoring, and performance and availability management was found to be best suited to the task.

"With a user community of hundreds of employees accessing our web applications, we need to ensure that they are performing well and that the user experience is the best it can be. Zenoss Enterprise, with its predictive alerting and synthetic transaction monitoring fits our requirements perfectly," said Randy Hinders, Application Specialist at CareSource. "At our scale, it is also important that we analyze performance trends and prevent potential bottlenecks. By providing more than just simple performance metrics, Zenoss gives us the overall visibility to stay on top of issues before they affect our user experience."

"We are delighted to work with CareSource as they optimize their VMware-based application environment with Zenoss Enterprise," said Tim Galligan, SVP of Worldwide Sales and Client Services at Zenoss. "The sophisticated management requirements presented by CareSource's IT infrastructure are a tremendous endorsement of Zenoss Enterprise's value in monitoring complex enterprise-level and virtualized IT environments."
