Zenoss Inc. announced Zenoss Cloud, the intelligent IT operations management platform. The company's next-generation cloud-native offering enables companies to eliminate IT outages and optimize cloud and on-premises systems as they undergo digital transformation, a business requirement for the survival of most companies across all industries.
