Zabbix is Celebrating Its Double Birthday!

Yes, year by year Zabbix company is not only growing more mature, but also more advanced in its product and services development, broader with partnership connections and relationships with customers, stronger with ever-growing and supportive Zabbix community and, of course, more grateful for all these achieved blessings.

This week the Zabbix team is celebrating two grand dates:

  • the 12-year anniversary of Zabbix software since its first release in April 2001! Without any doubt, each new peak and improvement made in the development of the program could not have been possible without the insistent, persistent and meticulous in-house and independent team of Zabbix developers who are working day and night in order to make Zabbix one of the leading open source monitoring solutions in the world.

  • the 8-year anniversary of Zabbix SIA that was officially established on April 12th, 2005! In as little as 8 years Zabbix SIA has grown from a complete “newbie” in this large and full-of-harsh-competition business world into a respected “shark” with over 55 business partners worldwide; above 50 thousand users and over 3,000 active community members in almost every corner of the world. Not bad for a privately owned company, offering only one virtual product, right?

But, of course, nothing happens purely by chance and a stroke of good fortune – there is always a reason for everything! And the reason why Zabbix SIA is “drumming up business” for 8 years now is because of a very strong and inexhaustible support, trust and very hard work of the big Zabbix “family”, consisting of the company's management team, staff and community members, business partners, clients, users & fans, and, of course, the always leading, guiding and attentive Zabbix SIA founder & CEO – Alexei Vladishev!

So, let's say a cheerful "YAY!" for the Zabbix company and Zabbix product and wish them continued success and prosperity!

First Zabbix Reseller from Australia

Last week Zabbix SIA signed a partnership agreement with its first reseller from Australia – Libre Solutions Pty Ltd. Libre Solutions Pty Ltd. is a small GNU/Linux and free software consulting company based in Sydney with a great deal of experience and knowledge in Zabbix Software.

„Australia has always been a desirable market for Zabbix SIA. Now, having a very experienced and knowledgeable partner in the region, it is easier to communicate to our potentials and bring their attention to our monitoring software,” says Alexei Vladishev, founder & CEO of Zabbix.

The established partner relationship between Zabbix SIA and Libre Solutions Pty Ltd. is like a “holy grail” for both companies about to bring in new and positive prospects, opportunities and business achievements.

IT sneak-peak

Logging of the Demon Configuration File Name [ZBXNEXT-1105]

Ever had problems running Zabbix caused by accidentally using an incorrect configuration file? That sometimes happens. To make such problems easier to detect, the Zabbix server, proxy and agent demons will now log the configuration file used on startup in the corresponding log file. That way you will be able to easily check if you've set up Zabbix correctly.

No Limits Or Boundaries for Zabbix Third Party Tools

Last week we were very happy to introduce to all of our Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn followers a new application, called ZAX, designed by Inovex GmbH and approved for the Zabbix 3rd Party Tools section.

ZAX is a mobile frontend for the Zabbix enterprise monitoring system. It is free and has no limits. The designed app shows not only active triggers, events and latest item data, but has features like history for items (graphs), push notifications on trigger updates in realtime, and HTTP auth for proxy that will help to understand the issues in more detail remotely.
