SolarWinds Showcases Network Management Portfolio Breakthroughs at Cisco Live 2018
AUSTIN, Texas, June 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds, a worldwide leader in network management software, today announced its participation at Cisco Live!®, June 10-14, 2018, in Orlando, Florida. For the first time, the company will publicly exhibit the latest updates to its network management product portfolio, demonstrating the ability to support networks up to four times larger than the previous generation, and how deeper visibility helps IT professionals scale up and support larger data center networks as workloads increase, or scale out to address complex distributed networks. SolarWinds believes the broad refresh, built on the Orion® Platform, strengthens its IDC®-validated network management leadership position.1
“Time is a critical company asset that is becoming increasingly more challenging to manage in a hybrid IT environment,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president of products, SolarWinds. “Our goal is to arm technology professionals with the right tools, regardless of the size of their organization, so they are able to do more with less—identify problems more quickly and solve network issues with fewer resources, so that eventually they have enough breathing room to take the necessary steps to optimize performance and scale up and out when they are ready.”
“In the past, we have been using over 12 different items to track our inventory, to manage our systems, to see how the network is overall performing, and it got to be a pain to know which one to go to, what spreadsheet to even go to,” said Allen Gray, senior network engineer, Cooper Standard Automotive, a leading global supplier of systems and components for the automotive industry. “It has saved me time, made us more efficient in our operations, to be able to do other things, and be more proactive versus reactive.” Watch video here.
