    CoScale (discontinued)

    CoScale is designed specifically to monitor container and microservices environments managed by Kubernetes ecosystem.

    Zenoss

    Perfect for multi-vendor infrastructure monitoring. Excellent end-to-end troubleshooting, due to real-time dependency mapping.The new Cloud platform is perfect for widely distributed companies, and those looking to minimize administration requirements for the monitoring platform. The prem-based Zenoss platform would be a better fit for organizations not willing to use a cloud-based monitoring application. Zenoss isn't currently a true app performance monitoring platform, so it would need to be used in conjunction with something like AppDynamics.

    Pros

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
    • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zenoss

    • Multi-platform support across a wide range of hardware and software infrastructure. Truly a vendor-agnostic platform.
    • Vendor-specific feature/configuration support, via ZenPacks, providing much better end-to-end visibility as compared to most legacy monitoring platforms -- especially for devices such as firewalls, middleware gateways, and load balancers.
    • Modern, cloud-native software architecture, as compared to legacy monitoring platforms. As a result, Zenoss Cloud should prove to be more scalable and easier to upgrade than legacy platforms such as SolarWinds, IBM, BMC, etc.

    Cons

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
    • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.

    Zenoss

    • Support for streaming data is on the roadmap must currently be addressed via a third-party app.
    • For some customers, a hybrid on-prem/cloud model may be a better fit than a pure cloud model. The onsite collectors offer some, but not all, of this functionality.
    • Tighter integration with third-party (AppDynamics, etc) and/or built-in app performance tools.

    We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

    Alternatives Considered

    CoScale (discontinued)

    CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

    Return on Investment

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
    • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.

    Zenoss

    • We're a reseller/Integrator, so this question has a somewhat different meaning to our business. For us, Zenoss Cloud allows us to provide a single Cloud-based monitoring platform that can address virtually all our clients' use cases, dramatically simplifying our training and staffing requirements. Instead of training Engineers on several platforms, including the installation of physical hardware/software, we can focus on a single platform.
    • The faster time-to-deployment and always-on cloud platform is a great fit for DevOps environments and newer software-defined data center platforms. The ability of Zenoss to support these environments solves what has been a major blind spot, slowing adoption of platforms that have been difficult to effectively manage with legacy monitoring platforms.
    • For clients, the ability to consolidate from multiple prem-based tools to a single cloud-based platform is huge. Eliminating multiple licenses and ongoing hardware & administration costs can show a 1-2 year ROI.
