How did you / your company discovered Zabbix?
A.G.: Coming from HP, I originally used to monitor with HP OV. When I created my OpenSource Company, I used Nagios, but was not satisfied with it. So, in 2006 I discovered Zabbix.
Why did you choose Zabbix and what made it to stand out from other available monitoring software?
A.G.: Much more powerful than Nagios, easy to install, true distributed architecture can fit big companies.
What was the key motivation for you to become one of our speakers at Zabbix Conference 2014?
A.G.: To prove Zabbix can monitor over 10,000 servers, but also highlight the glue that can be developed around Zabbix for such big architectures.
Zabbix Conference takes place for the 4th year. What do you want attendees to learn from your session?
A.G.: Help the audience to understand how Zabbix can monitor big architectures, especially in the Banking sector; also highlight some limits for which you have to develop some light glue.
What is the key message that you will bring to the conference audience by your presentation?
A.G.: Zabbix is able to monitor comfortably over 10,000 servers.
This year’s Conference has a strong emphasis on scaling and high performance monitoring. What are your thoughts on the selected key topic?
A.G.: This is the main focus of my presentation.
What do you look forward to at this year’s Zabbix Conference? What topics / issues you are more likely to discuss outside your session?
A.G.: I am open to any discussion, but I am mainly interested in 1) big architectures issues and solutions, 2) Zabbix roadmap
For those, who are still not registered for the upcoming Zabbix Conference, please share your thoughts and reasons why they should join it?
A.G.: If you are thinking Open Source Monitoring, if you have over 5,000 servers/nodes or complex architecture and doubt that an OpenSource can help, please come!
