Hyperic + Zimbra = Easy

Hyperic is adding modules to manage various open source applications, starting with Zimbra.

Hyperic hasn't been making much noise about it, but it's doing an excellent job of extending its IT management solution to the various open source applications. As it announced today, Zimbra is the latest to get the royal treatment.

From the release:

Beginning today, administrators of Zimbra Collaboration Suite,... have a fully supported, enterprise-ready solution for managing their complex, mission critical environments with the general availability of Hyperic HQ plugin for Zimbra. The plugin made available by Hyperic...will allow Zimbra customers to easily monitor and manage the performance of their open source messaging and collaboration suite along with all other layers of their infrastructure.

Hyperic?s software provides...cross-stack visibility and helps enterprises to pinpoint, correct and prevent problems at every layer ? including hardware, networks, virtualization, middleware and applications. The new Hyperic HQ plugin instantly enables system administrators of Zimbra to take full advantage of Hyperic?s...management capabilities, including auto-discovery, monitoring, complex alerting and remediation.

Word on the street is that Hyperic will shortly be rolling out other open source applications....
