Announcing Sensu Enterprise

by Caleb Hailey | Monday, April 13, 2015

Portland, OR (April 13, 2015) - after nearly 11 months of active development, including a 10-week public beta involving over 50 organizations, Heavy Water is excited to announce the general release of Sensu Enterprise version 1.0.0.

As an operations automation consultancy, we at Heavy Water have found ourselves repeatedly implementing Sensu in the same fashion for our customers over the years. When this common set of features and patterns outgrew what could be packaged up in configuration management, we realized we needed a better way to ship them to our customers, and thus began development on Sensu Enterprise.

Design goals:

  1. Based on Sensu Core. Improvements to Sensu Enterprise should benefit the open source community, and visa versa.
  2. Provide a common set of features for a better out of the box user experience. By providing a collection of built-in integrations, Sensu Enterprise works with the services you’re already using (including Slack, PagerDuty, AWS EC2, Chef, Librato; with many more to come).
  3. Provide real-time visibility into the operation of your business. Sensu Enterprise ships with a dashboard that provides a single-pane of glass for one or more Sensu Enterprise installations. With this centralized point of view and role-based access controls, the Sensu Enterprise Dashboard can improve operational visibility across entire organizations.
  4. Sensu Support is included. The market demand for technical support has always been there, but without a common configuration, the cost for providing support proved to be too high. Sensu Enterprise provides a baseline that makes it possible to provide enterprise-class support.
  5. Optimize performance. With internal enhancements and performance-tuned integrations - all on the JVM runtime - we can push Sensu Enterprise further (to web scale!1!!!1!).
  6. Build the best on-site monitoring platform in the world. Sensu already has an amazing community behind it. Together, with the momentum provided by Sensu Enterprise, let’s make Sensu the best on-site monitoring platform in the world.
