The times are changing; infrastructure today is large & globally distributed. Systems administrators/engineers and others who work in "devops" need a better solutions that what is currently available as of January 2012.
2012q4 Update: Custos Project is finally getting published in Github, getting ready for public release.
2012q2 Update: Custos Public Service, at custos.co is now open for beta users.
2012q1 Update: Custos is getting an overhaul, dropping it's dependence on Nagios/Icinga and moving into it's own. The current solutions don't scale well; in most scenarios there is some single-point-of-failure ("SPOF"). Additionally the monitoring systems do not scale well - adding parallel systems for high-availability or load-balancing is a complex task.
Custos aims to change that, creating a system that is an easy to deploy, distributed & redundant system.
