Zabbix in South America

The beginning of this year turned out to be very dynamic for Zabbix SIA: the long-awaited planned trip to Brazil finally took place. We would like to thank our partner in Brazil, the company Unirede, for their assistance with the organization of this journey as well as their input in the arrangement of the first Zabbix training session consisting of Zabbix for Large Environments and Zabbix Certified Specialist courses.

Brazil has already been known as the country, where Open Source products are well-recognized and widely used, for a long time. There Zabbix software is used in big corporations as well as small companies, and some of the most reputed users are:

  • Brazilian government agency Procergs (Zabbix is monitoring more than 500 servers for them);
  • Petrobras (Brazilian energy company, which is a significant oil producer and major distributor of oil products);
  • SERPRO (Serviço Federal de Processamento de Dados – the largest public technology application service provider in Brazil);
  • Dataprev (Empresa de Tecnologia e Informações da Previdência Social – the technology and information bureau of the social welfare system of Brazil);
  • Renner shops (Lojas Renner SA – the biggest clothing retailer of Brazil).

We think that this visit was an important step in building Zabbix community in South America and promoting our monitoring solution. Zabbix has already earned a significant popularity level among local IT specialists, and Alexei valued the opportunity to meet them in person. We hope that there will be more such visits in future, and we will have a chance to work with our partners and companies from South America even more effectively.
