SolarWinds to Showcase End-to-End Integrated Application Stack Performance Visibility at Microsoft Ignite 2015
SolarWinds Invites Attendees to Experience a Complete View of the Application and Underlying Infrastructure Layers -- Including Storage, Server, Virtualization, Cloud and the Web -- Through Live Product Demonstrations, In-Booth Learning Sessions and the Company's Partner Theater Presentation

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/27/15 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT performance management software, today announced its participation at Microsoft® Ignite, May 4-8, 2015, in Chicago. At the event, SolarWinds® will showcase its recently unveiled application stack (AppStack) dashboard and related products, which provide integrated performance monitoring of the application and its infrastructure layers within a single pane of glass. SolarWinds Head Geek Patrick Hubbard will also present on the dashboard as part of the show's Partner Theater. In addition, the company will host Geek Speak in Real Life, a series of free in-booth learning sessions featuring industry gurus and SolarWinds experts.

"Today, businesses run on applications, which means application performance and the performance of the underlying IT infrastructure equals business performance," said Suaad Sait, executive vice president, products and markets, SolarWinds. "However, with the complexity of the modern application delivery chain -- including storage, servers, virtualization, cloud, the Web and more -- resolving performance issues is becoming increasingly difficult. IT pros cannot afford to continue trying to resolve application performance issues within disconnected silos. We're looking forward to showing Ignite attendees the unparalleled top-to-bottom AppStack visibility SolarWinds provides to help better identify, prioritize and resolve application problems."

Visit SolarWinds at Booth 543
SolarWinds Head Geeks Kong Yang and Thomas LaRock will join Hubbard and other product experts at booth 543 to provide demonstrations of the new AppStack dashboard feature included as part of the following products:

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor: Delivers comprehensive application and server monitoring for any application, with built-in support for more than 200, including Microsoft Windows Server®, Active Directory®, Exchange, IIS and SQL Server®; Linux®; and Apache®. Also supports multiple server hardware vendors, including Dell®, HP® and IBM®.
SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor: Provides real-time storage visibility into multi-vendor NAS and SAN arrays, including EMC®, NetApp®, Dell, Hitachi® and more.
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager: Supplies comprehensive virtualization management, including VMware® and Microsoft Hyper-V® environments.
SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor: Enables troubleshooting of Web-based performance issues, including for CSS, HTML and JavaScript® elements, for both internal and customer-facing applications.

With each of these products contributing valuable performance information, the dashboard shows the health of applications, servers, virtualization, storage and Web resources and how each may impact overall application performance, all within a single console. Administrators can easily identify an application showing compromised performance and instantly see which of the other components in the infrastructure may be causing the problem.

Experts will also be on hand to demonstrate the full range of SolarWinds products, including:

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer
SolarWinds Log & Event Manager
SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

Show attendees will also have the opportunity to win prizes by proving themselves as the ultimate SysMan Hero!, an interactive video game available in the booth where players fend off Web eating bugs from destroying the Internet. Players with daily top scores will win a $100 American Express® gift cards. Everyone who plays will be entered to win the grand prize, an Xbox One® Halo®: The Master Chief Collection Bundle.
