SolarWinds Cloud to Showcase Full-Stack Cloud Monitoring at Velocity Santa Clara 2015
SolarWinds Cloud to Join DevOps and Web Performance Professionals to Debut Portfolio of Pingdom, Librato and Papertrail Together for the First Time

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/15 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT performance management software, today announced that SolarWinds Cloud will present its powerful full-stack cloud monitoring capabilities at Velocity in Santa Clara, CA May 28 and 29. SolarWinds Cloud brings together real-time cloud monitoring from Librato® alongside the website uptime and performance monitoring capabilities of Pingdom® and the log management and analytics of Papertrail to provide DevOps and web performance professionals the visibility they need into their cloud and web environments.

Velocity gathers experts in development, operations and web performance, providing a collaborative and dynamic environment in which participants can learn how SolarWinds Cloud offers full-stack cloud monitoring for any organization from start-ups to enterprises operating cloud applications on Amazon® Web Services, Azure and more.

"As applications are being developed and deployed in increasingly complex cloud environments, DevOps teams are investing considerable amounts of time and effort assembling monitoring systems that can scale and provide the necessary insights into operations that allow them to react quickly to problems," said Gerardo A. Dada, vice president of product marketing and strategy, SolarWinds Cloud. "What they need is a dependable and trusted solution for integrated full-stack monitoring -- one that evolves with the needs of the DevOps community. With Pingdom, Librato and Papertrail technologies, SolarWinds Cloud brings together best-of-breed tools DevOps teams can rely on."

Monitor cloud performance from the user, app and infrastructure perspective

  • Pingdom - Web performance management that monitors and alerts on uptime, end-user experience, performance and transactions for websites, APIs, services, email and more
  • Librato - Real-time cloud monitoring that collects metrics from any source, correlates with time slices, and creates custom dashboards and visualizations with alerting
  • Papertrail - Log management that can quickly and easily collect, monitor, search, interpret and act on log data generated by the infrastructure and applications

"All of these SolarWinds Cloud products work well together as they're solving slightly different problems at each level of our technology stack," said Andrew Thompson, co-founder and CEO of Insignum, an automated analytics intelligence company. "Pingdom is our go-to solution for understanding the overall health and stability of the web pages our customers engage with day-to-day, while Librato gives us an understanding of how all our infrastructure is performing to deliver value to users, and then when something breaks, Papertrail becomes the service that we use to drill into the exact details of the problem so we can devise a solution -- its true value is simplicity."
