Zenoss Sponsors PyCon 2008 and Leads Application Monitoring Discussion

Zenoss Joins Google, Microsoft and Sun as Sponsor of PyCon 2008

ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - Zenoss, Inc., a leading provider of open source network, systems and application management software, today announced its Platinum Sponsorship of PyCon 2008, the world's largest Python conference, to be held March 14-15 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare. Written in Python and deployed in thousands of organizations around the world, Zenoss has become the most popular IT monitoring and management product on Sourceforge.net. Python is a popular open-source programming language that is used and supported by leading enterprise software providers including Google, Microsoft and Sun, who are also sponsors of PyCon.

Zenoss chose Python as its programming language because it combines structure, development speed and simplicity. Many Python programmers report substantial productivity gains and feel the language encourages the development of higher quality, more maintainable code. The dynamic and open nature of Python also makes it easy to extend and integrate with existing applications.

"The Swiss say that people love their chocolate because it is made with milk from happy cows that spend their days feeding on grassy alpine slopes," said Erik Dahl, Zenoss CTO and Co-Founder. "Systems administrators love Zenoss because it's made by happy programmers who snack all day on tasty bits of Python."

In addition to exhibiting in the vendor exposition, Zenoss is also sponsoring a Birds-of-a-Feather session in the Love International Ballroom on Friday, March 14 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The purpose of the session is to discuss the monitoring and management of Python based applications with other framework and application developers in the Python community.

Zenoss will be exhibiting in Booth 111 on Friday, March 14 and Saturday, March 15 from 10:40 a.m. until 4:45 p.m.
