Today marks a significant milestone for SolarWinds, as we’ve formally announced our organizational direction
to evolve from our leadership position in monitoring to become a leader in observability. Today is also significant because it marks the official release of our Hybrid Cloud Observability
, and I’m excited to share more details on what we believe expands the scope of observability for the market.
SolarWinds has built a vast global customer base spanning organizations of all sizes and sectors. In the past few years, we’ve seen our customers embark on data-driven transformations, evolving their environments from on-premises to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments.
To further support our customers’ future success—while also meeting our customers where they are today—we knew we needed to embark on our own product transformation. Here are some of the notable offerings and options you’ll see through today’s significant software release of SolarWinds® Hybrid Cloud Observability solution
- A View of Your Entire Infrastructure Through a Single Pane of Glass
Hybrid Cloud Observability provides a complete view of how best to monitor, observe, and manage the infrastructure driving your organization. Through a single pane of glass, you can receive health scores and insights across your networks, applications, databases, and systems—wherever they reside. This fully integrated view can help you identify and diagnose service issues, determine root cause, and flag potential security threats with greater efficiency than ever before.
- An Upgrade Path From the SolarWinds Orion Platform to the New SolarWinds Platform
When converting to our Hybrid Cloud Observability solution, you’re installing our new SolarWinds Platform as a foundation. Built from our strong SolarWinds Orion®
Platform backbone, the SolarWinds Platform has been simplified with a single installer for easier extensibility and upgrades. The platform is also Secure by Design, employing our Next-Generation Build System
with three logical environments—standard, validation, and security—used to develop and deploy updates.
Hybrid Cloud Observability also provides a simplified licensing model with more flexible pricing and packaging—you can purchase one subscription license to cover all your nodes and deploy and consume them however works best for your organization.
- A New and Improved Customer Experience for All
We’ve streamlined the entire end-to-end experience. We applied this approach to simplify pricing and packaging, so it’s easy for customers to procure, consume, and upgrade across departments and regions, maximizing available resources for the best results.
With these upgrades, we can cover more of your environments at the pace and scale of your organization. Leaning on the rich IT operations monitoring and management heritage of SolarWinds and leveraging our vast customer network and 180,000-member THWACK® community
, we built our new SolarWinds Platform and Hybrid Cloud Observability solution for all stages of your cloud transformation journey. I encourage you to download a free trial
