Eaton and Open Source Software

Eaton is a strong supporter of Open Source software projects and is a 10+ year contributor to the Open Source community working with partners like RedHat, Ubuntu/Canonical, Citrix, Network UPS Tools, Malamute/ZeroMQ and Debian. Eaton is also a founding member of the 42ITY™ project. 42ITY™ exists to provide the most open, flexible platform in the industry for enabling data center service optimization.

Proprietary, monolithic solutions for data center infrastructure management have often failed to provide the expected customer value because they are too costly to integrate & deploy in heterogeneous data center environments. 42ITy™ addresses these issues by providing an intuitive data center monitoring platform based on a modern micro-services architecture with open REST APIs, facilitating integration with existing solutions. And best of all, it is open source! This enables data center operators and data center ecosystem solution partners to provide a seamless monitoring experience even in the most heterogeneous environments via a common framework and APIs.
