TNS is a leading media and market research company in Russia that specializes in market research, media intelligence, and audience measurement and has been providing data to national TV for more than 15 years.
Currently TNS monitors about 700 devices. There are about 21000 active items and 8700 active triggers. Before starting to use Zabbix, the company faced the following challenges: “We had a lot of servers (Windows/Linux), which were either not monitored or monitored at the simplest level (host availability). After trying different solutions (Nagios/Icinga, Zenoss…) we decided to use Zabbix. So we gradually added new servers, checks, device types (UPS, printers, routers, specific record stations…). We also created a web journal for our IT-service and closely integrated it with Zabbix. So for us Zabbix is the core of the whole monitoring system to which the other components are integrated,” says Leonid Moiseev, Deputy Head of IT department.
According to Leonid Moiseev, the key benefits of using Zabbix are: "Open source project; powerful and flexible (templates, trigger dependencies, distributed monitoring, acknowledgements, maintenance periods…); native agents for Linux and Windows; Zabbix API".
