SolarWinds Adds SDN Monitoring Support to Industry-Leading Network Management Portfolio

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --The latest updates bring Cisco ACI support and expanded anomaly detection capabilities to provide deeper visibility into network environments

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced a broad refresh to its market-leading network management portfolio, as well as key enhancements to the Orion® Platform. Designed to address the increasing adoption of SDN technology—Cisco® ACI in particular—SolarWinds® Network Performance Monitor helps customers monitor logical components of their SDN environment, including APICs, tenants, application profiles, endpoint groups, and physical entities. SolarWinds is recognized by IDC® as the market leader in network management software.1

“Customers are sampling SDN in their dev-test environments, but with the maturation of the technology, we’re seeing wider use by customers within their production environments,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president of products, SolarWinds. “Our users need comprehensive visibility into both the physical and logical networks. These latest updates are a direct reflection of our continued commitment to our user community and to their businesses—all priced to be within reach for most companies and service providers.” 

The latest SolarWinds product refresh also brings advancements to SolarWinds anomaly detection capabilities—expanding alerts for unexpected behavior in the infrastructure, enhancing configuration baselines to help prevent config drift, and improving PerfStack™ dashboards for cross-stack troubleshooting. Added support for Infoblox® extends administrator visibility into network operations, with the ability to monitor Infoblox DHCP and DNS services in a centralized dashboard.
