SolarWinds Presents Librato Monitoring for Docker at AWS re:Invent 2015
SolarWinds Showcases Full-Stack Cloud Monitoring From Librato, Papertrail and Pingdom at Amazon Web Services Event; Introduces New Turnkey Librato Integrations for Monitoring Docker, Redis, NGINX, Rails and Rack

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/05/15 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable hybrid IT infrastructure management software, today announced it will introduce Docker® monitoring from Librato, its real-time cloud monitoring solution, at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, October 6-9. SolarWinds will showcase Librato®, as well as Papertrail for log management and Pingdom® for web performance monitoring, which collectively provide full-stack monitoring and visibility into cloud applications.

At Amazon Web Services® (AWS®) re:Invent, nearly 20,000 developers, engineers, and other experts in systems management and operations will gather to explore new and existing AWS offerings, attend training, and discuss best practices and solutions for supporting their cloud infrastructures.

"If you look around at the products and services showcased at AWS re:Invent, it's clear that developers have incredible flexibility and the ability to customize when building their applications -- the options are endless. Still, it's critical to be able to make sense of all the data impacting the performance of those applications," said Joel Dolisy, CTO, SolarWinds. "With solutions like Librato, which offer insight into those metrics, along with log management from Papertrail and web performance monitoring from Pingdom, users can have full-stack visibility into their cloud applications."

Librato Monitors Docker and More
Docker, a popular application packaging technology, creates containers which comprise code, runtime, system tools and other dependencies, all of which produce vast amounts of data that is critical to providing insight into the health and performance of the application. Librato's new turnkey integration with Docker collects those metrics and enables users to visualize them instantly in customizable graphs with the ability to correlate, annotate, and alert on the data.

Docker joins Librato's list of more than 90 collection agents and language bindings, including Amazon CloudWatch and Heroku®. Other new turnkey integrations provide monitoring for NGINX® web servers and Redis servers as well as performance insight into Ruby on Rails and Rack application stacks.

SolarWinds CTO Presents on "Build vs. Buy" at AWS re:Invent October 7 & 8
Joel Dolisy, CTO at SolarWinds, will speak on "Let's not re:Invent the wheel: When to build vs. buy monitoring software" during two Lightning Talks in the AWS Partner Theater Booth 645 of the Expo Hall on both Wednesday, October 7 and Thursday, October 8 at 12:40 p.m. PT both days. Joel and Librato Technical Evangelist Nik Wekwerth will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of building or buying software, discuss use cases and examples, and will show how SolarWinds' cloud monitoring solutions can keep DevOps, engineers, and other IT professionals focused on their core competencies and growing their businesses.
