Monitoring the network with Zenoss

Core and Enterprise

Many of the open source companies offer commercial versions that provides substantially different functionality. In the case of Zenoss, however, the primary difference between the commercial Enterprise version and Zenoss Core (the community version) is that Enterprise lets you benefit from some configuration that has been done ahead of time. For instance, one of the ZenPacks that comes with Enterprise is an Exchange monitoring pack. Zenoss clearly realizes that true Enterprise customers are paying for support, so providing faster configuration on the Enterprise version will minimize their use of internal resources.
