Your infrastructure doesn’t just exist in your building or your physical data center anymore. Critical applications and services can live anywhere. What started with hardware virtualization has evolved to services in the cloud. Wherever your critical services live, it’s important your users can continue to operate without interruption. This means one thing: monitoring. Join SolarWinds VP of Product Strategy Brandon Shopp and Microsoft Senior Cloud Advocate Pierre Roman for a frank discussion about overcoming the challenges as your environment scales out.
