Zenoss mashes with Google to help visualize IT infrastructure

A cool new spin on a tired, old market.

This is pretty cool (and actually kind of innovative, if you think about it). Zenoss has announced that

it has added a direct integration with Google Maps and struck a business agreement with Google, Inc., that makes real-time, geographical visualization of the health of distributed IT infrastructure available through Zenoss Core, its free, open source software product. The first-of-its-kind offering brings powerful network management capabilities to the masses.

This puts a "consumerish" face on a rather stodgy old application, and I imagine will be heartily welcomed by system administrators. Would you rather stare at a green screen or a Google map?

Me, too.

Open source + the sexy web. Who would have thought? Zenoss, apparently.
