Starting in 2009, a much larger percentage of data center managers indicated proprietary systems management software has an advantage over open source tools in advanced product features. In 2009, 33% of all respondents indicated that product features played a bigger part in defining the advantages of commercial tools, versus 10% in the previous year. Though not explicitly spelled out in the survey, you can translate product features to "virtualization management features." Matte is using Zenoss' open source offering, Zenoss Core, and said he has evaluated Zenoss' proprietary enterprise ZenPacks, which have virtual machine management features. "I have taken a look at the enterprise ZenPacks, and there is nothing like the VMware [Management] Pack in the open source community," Matte said.
