This year Zabbix as a company marks the 15th anniversary. Tens of people worked hard to make Zabbix one of the world’s most demanded and recognizable monitoring tool. There are people, whose work was and stays crucial for the product to be valuable – the developers. We decided to speak to the two Zabbix old-timers who are working in Zabbix from the very beginning till now and ask questions about how Zabbix has been developed throughout the years as well to uncover the Zabbix developers’ every day.
Zabbix Monitoring Solution is now available through Red Hat Marketplace, an open cloud marketplace that makes it easier to discover and access certified software for container-based environments across the hybrid cloud. Through the marketplace, customers can take advantage of responsive support, streamlined billing and contracting, simplified governance, and single-dashboard visibility across clouds.
Patrik Uytterhoeven is an opensource minded consultant working for Open-Future – one of the oldest Zabbix partners. Patrik is a certified Zabbix trainer and also the author of the Zabbix Cookbook and co-author of the Zabbix 4 network monitoring book. At Zabbix Conference Benelux 2020 he will speak about upgrading Zabbix and migrating from PostgreSQL table partitioning to PostgreSQL with TimescaleDB.
Frank Klaassen is a Senior DevOps Engineer with a broad range of experience and interests. Monitoring plays an integral part in his career – he has been working with Zabbix since 2008 and either introduced or improved the usage of Zabbix at all companies he has worked for. At Zabbix Conference Benelux 2020 Frank will talk about the discovery functionality of Zabbix to make configuration of environments easier and less time-consuming.
Julio Cesar Hegedus is currently responsible for a project to build a large Zabbix environment that supports multi-site fail-over. At Zabbix Summit 2019 he will focus on the lessons learned with Zabbix, sharing positive and negative aspects.
Being an experienced Zabbix expert, Wolfgang Alper has implemented a variety of creative projects. At this year’s Summit, his presentation will reveal how “Deutsche Telekom Technik GmbH” integrated lots of Zabbix-Server instances into their existing IBM NetCool ticket system. The main goal was to reuse the entire existing infrastructure and the attached business processes to work with alarms created by Zabbix.
We have asked Wolfgang a few questions about creativity while working with Zabbix.
