Coleman Technologies Deploys Zenoss for Service Providers to Monitor and Manage Global IT Infrastructure

Zenoss' Flexibility Enables Managed Services Provider to Develop and Deliver Differentiated Services to Its Customers

ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - Zenoss, Inc., a leading provider of commercial open source network, systems and applications management software, today announced that Coleman Technologies has deployed Zenoss for Service Providers to monitor and manage the networks, servers and end-user application performance for its managed services offering.

Coleman Technologies provides managed IT and systems engineering services to its customers. With its highly technical staff, Coleman Technologies prides itself on understanding companies' unique challenges and developing specialized solutions to meet them. After using Silverback's IT management solution for two years, Coleman Technologies was eager to find a more flexible solution that would not only be easier to use, but also enable them to develop more specialized services to its customers. After an exhaustive vendor evaluation and pilot, Coleman Technologies selected Zenoss for Service Providers.

"Our logic for moving to Zenoss has been validated at every turn," said Dave Winter, manager, managed services at Coleman Technologies. "It has strong out of the box functionality and enables us to easily monitor and manage diverse heterogeneous IT environments. More importantly, leveraging Zenoss' open flexibility, we've been able to develop and offer specialized services to our customers, ultimately differentiating us from our competition."

As a first step in its deployment, Coleman Technologies used Zenoss' discovery to detect and catalog all of its managed service devices. It then assigned monitoring rules to device type families which significantly accelerated the Zenoss deployment and enables Coleman to logically monitor and manage each customer environment individually or monitor by device family and type.

Zenoss' agentless technology also enables Coleman to monitor remote devices without the need for plug-ins.

Through a centralized dashboard, the Coleman team monitors its diverse customer environments and receives alerts notifying them of potential issues. Its staff then uses Zenoss' event logs to quickly identify root causes and remediate issues. The result is more efficient operations and more satisfied customers.

"Coleman's environment was a perfect fit for our service provider offering," said Bill Karpovich, CEO and Co-Founder of Zenoss. "Zenoss for Service Providers was designed to be easy to use, affordable and flexible enough to respond to the changing demands of a broad customer base, which xSPs like Coleman technologies certainly have."
