The release of Centreon 3.4, the new version of our open source solution, is accompanied by a version upgrade of all Centreon products. The new versions of Centreon EPP, Centreon MAP, Centreon BAM and Centreon MBI, as well as the Centreon EMS solution are therefore compatible with Centreon 3.4.
Important: for any upgrade, please contact our Centreon TechSupport first to update your repo of Centreon and thereafter your products or Centreon EMS solution.
Dear users, clients and partners,
You have been patient and we fully appreciate it. We hope that this new IT monitoring experience using Centreon 3.4 will be to your liking!
New features have been added, improvements made to existing features and corrections been made to Centreon 3.4’s three main components.
Centreon, our robust open source monitoring platform is functionally complete and ready to use at no cost. However, to launch Centreon into a specific IT infrastructure, probes need to be developed and integrated to extract values from all of the IT components found in the network.
It is not uncommon to find SMB IT managers simultaneously managing physical, virtual and cloud-based operations (40% of those surveyed by IDC in 2014). Small or not, they have to deal with a diversity of IT assets, and integrating good monitoring for each of them takes some knowledge and precious time.
Installing monitoring is a costly initiative in itself that can affect the smooth running of services and operations since it takes up valuable resources they don’t have.
Because of this, Centreon, our free open source monitoring platform has been widely adopted by monitoring-savvy administrators of SMBs for years. But they still had to figure out the installation and integration on their own. What we realized is that we can do better for them in this day and age when IT has become a complicated must-have to do business.
With 7.5 million customers spread across 280 sites in Europe, the Pierre & Vacances – Center Parcs Group has become the leading proximity tourism operator in Europe within the last 50 years.
To monitor its Information System, improve communication with users and optimize the activity monitoring for all Group entities, the IT Department relies on the Centreon EMS solution since 2014.
A very satisfactory first step allowed performance gains thanks to a very relevant data collection and the sites monitoring centralization. Meanwhile, the monitoring team focuses on data visualization and reporting tool implementation to strengthen its communication, image and efficiency to business users.
