Cisco & Zenoss Clear It Up at Cloud Expo, 2011

The Cloud Expo is hopping again this year with a lively and engaged crowd. And Zenoss is right in the center of things with a busy booth and lots of Zennys (our zebra mascot)!

Yesterday’s highlight was the stage presentation by Wayne Greene of Cisco (@wmgreen0) and yours
truly (@KentwithaT). A big audience gathered around to watch us talk about the role of Service Assurance in cloud management and we were peppered with questions afterward.

We covered how the excitement of first day deployment of service portals and provisioning orchestration needed to be followed by solid second day procedures for managing cloud infrastructure, mapping cloud tenant service dependencies, and providing ongoing tenant-focused monitoring and root cause analysis.

Come by our booth at Cloud Expo (#816) for a live demo & to ask about monitoring CloudStack with Zenoss.

We’re also giving away an Amazon Kindle Fire, too, so be sure to get your badge scanned to win.
