Zenoss Keeps Millions of March Madness Fans in the Game

Key NCAA Basketball Tournament Web Site Powered by Zenoss Enterprise

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Zenoss Inc., a leading provider of management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT environments, today announced that a major media company providing live online coverage of the NCAA men's basketball tournament chose Zenoss to monitor and ensure smooth web performance during the March Madness event.

Last year was a watershed movement for online video streaming with close to 12 million hours of March Madness streamed online. The large media company that is offering live coverage of the tournament on the web is a long-time Zenoss customer. Zenoss will make sure their dynamic IT infrastructure is performing and available as they adjust to particularly high levels of traffic on their live streaming web site. 

The Zenoss proactive management approach ensures that the customer's on-demand services are able to reallocate virtual resources quickly when needed. When this year's Cinderella team makes its improbable tournament run, Zenoss will be there to identify the increased web site workload demand and help bring more virtual resources online. 

"We can't allow a web site to go down at any time, but especially not during an exciting sporting event such as March Madness," said Rick Houlihan, VP of Engineering at Zenoss. "College basketball fans will turn to this web site to keep up with the latest action, and we are thrilled that Zenoss has been chosen to manage and monitor the systems that make live streaming possible."
