Cloud Blogging With Zenoss

Zenoss LogoI have been writing guest posts for Zenoss’ blog for about nine months. For the most part I focus on cloud-centric topics like Automatic Provisioning, Service Assurance and most recently, DevOps.

Zenoss calls itself The Cloud Management Company, describing its offerings as such:

Zenoss was founded in 2005 to address the challenges of operating and assuring large-scale IT services…As enterprises and service providers drive aggressively towards the “IT-as-a-Service” model, the need for a new class of IT operations solution has become an urgent and obvious need.

The key principles that drove our initial offerings are even more relevant today as organizations drive towards the vision of automated operations and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

In other words, Zenoss is moving IT operations away from legacy vendors, freeing up companies to run dynamic infrastructures and free up development cycles, so that they can keep up and thrive in this real-time world we now live in.

I really enjoy writing for Zenoss. It’s well-run, has great people and they even invite me to the company picnics, which I’d attend if I lived a little closer to Austin…

Here are links to a few of the dozen or so posts I’ve written for Zenoss so far:

Is It Time to Redefine Ops?

Service Assurance Via the Cloud, Part 2: How Many 9’s Do You Need?

Automatic Provisioning: Why It’s So Important

Ideally, these posts are helping to make the “cloud” more accessible to the average reader. I’d love to hear your thoughts about these posts – or your thoughts on cloud computing in general – in the comments section.
