What's Next

Is there life after the release of Zabbix 2.0? Actually, even more than before! We are very enthusiastic as we are getting ready for the next step – Zabbix 2.2. And this is the best time for you to shape this future release and to demand a specific feature that can improve efficiency of monitoring within your unique IT infrastructure. To include your specific feature for guaranteed development, please follow instructions on Development Services page. You may also vote for your favorite features on the ZBXNEXT to be included in next releases of Zabbix.

Announcing Agenda

It is always important to know what is ahead before saying "yes". As the list of Zabbix Conference 2012 speakers is set and approved, which means the agenda is all bright and clear, what is your excuse not to register for this must-be event! There are nine external speakers coming from around the world to share their experience with practical issues of using and developing around Zabbix. Members of our team, including Alexei Vladishev, Founder & CEO, will also deliver presentations about the future of Zabbix, best techniques, and upcoming features.

See official agenda of Zabbix Conference 2012 with the list of speakers and topics.

Hands on Zabbix 2.0

Zabbix 2.0 screenshots were recently published on our product page. Those should provide you with some insight into the latest features, the new look and improvements. However, those of you who prefer to get their hands on the new version and test it out, now may download the Zabbix 2.0 virtual appliance. Get a personal "playground" in just a few minutes. Your computer will be able to handle the job just fine. With easy to understand instructions even an intermediate IT user will be able to set this up.

Safe to Upgrade to Zabbix 2.0

It is now two weeks since the release of Zabbix 2.0. At this point it seems that none of you had any major problems with upgrading your current installation to Zabbix 2.0. We have received a lot of positive feedback from the community and our customers.

So if you are ready to upgrade, please follow the easy step-by-step instructions found in Zabbix documentation (Upgrade procedure and Upgrade notes). However, if you are not sure whether you are capable of going through the upgrade process by yourself, you may contract Zabbix to do the work. More information is available on Upgrade Services page or by contacting Zabbix sales team, which will make sure that you get the assistance you need.
