icinga_christmasWe don’t want to exaggerate but 2014 really was one of our greatest years for the Icinga project now coming to an end. It is not really hard to tell. In addition to amazing people contributing to Icinga we definitely reached the next level of the project.

  • Icinga 2: After a couple of years we finally reached the point where Icinga 2 was ready for the release. It took us years of development and sleepless nights, but also weeks of discussions on how we can do things right. Changing the configuration format was one of our biggest concerns in being successful. We really wanted more than small changes and maintance, we wanted to reach a complete new level of monitoring – and so it happened. If we look at Icinga 2 now, I am confident we made it happen in many ways. And your awesome feedback verified our opinion in so many ways. More …
  • Icinga Camp San Francisco: It was the first time for us to host an event on the other side of the ocean and thanks to GitHub and Kelsey and James organizing an awesome event German-style we where able to do so. To cut a long story short. Icinga Camp San Francisco was a blast and we took so much positive energy out of it. Seeing that a lot of really really big brands using Icinga 2 in production was incredible. More …
  • Icinga Web 2: In addition to the core we started working on an Icinga Web successor one and half year ago. We invested a lot of time into the basic design questions and how we can make it easy for others to contribute. The feedback on our first Beta in November was overwhelming and we are still working on Icinga Web 2 to get it ready for the final release early next year. Looking at users starting to write modules for it already is the best feedback you can get. More …

Don’t be afraid, we still want more and have a lot of plans for the upcoming months. In addition to more community events in Barcelona and Portland, we will follow our successful strategy from the past making Icinga the most awesome monitoring tool out there. Though Icinga’s success is built on community spirit so we’d like to hear about your wishes and ideas! Please let us know what you desire the most for 2015 in the poll below:

Last but not least we wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
