SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its participation at Cisco Live ANZ 2017, March 7-10, 2017, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. In addition to showcasing its existing products that address the network and all other key areas of infrastructure, from on-premises to the cloud, SolarWinds will exhibit the PerfStack dashboard, a significant update to the SolarWinds Orion platform. The PerfStack dashboard is a new, highly customisable yet simple-to-build dashboard. It allows IT administrators to selectively drag and drop any number of real-time and historical metrics from SolarWinds Orion platform-based products into a single pane to visualise the relationship between suspect elements. This innovative visualisation enables them to identify, isolate, and troubleshoot performance problems in ways never before possible.
"With hybrid IT, software-defined networking, hyperconvergence and any number of other disruptive trends impacting today's IT environments, complex, multi-faceted performance issues that often transcend functional silos are more common than ever," said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president, products, SolarWinds. "In turn, troubleshooting to resolve these problems is growing increasingly difficult. Enter PerfStack. We're excited to show Cisco Live attendees how PerfStack, along with our complete portfolio of market-leading products, can help them break down the walls between functional roles, help to eliminate finger pointing, and solve performance problems faster."
The company will also preview the latest version of the award-winning SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor, which will include support for Cisco Meraki wireless access points. Cisco Meraki wireless access points are 100 percent cloud-managed, enabling network engineers to focus on configuring network behaviors rather than individual network components. With this upcoming update, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor will provide a single robust tool for monitoring both locally managed and Cisco Meraki cloud-managed wireless access points.
In addition, SolarWinds senior vice president and global chief technology officer, Joseph Kim, will present, "Why Network Visibility is Becoming More Important in a Hybrid IT World," as part of the Cisco Live ANZ 2017 Partner Think Tank.

Join "Why Network Visibility is Becoming More Important in a Hybrid IT World"
On Thursday, March 9 at 4:10 p.m. AEDT in the Partner Think Tank #2, attendees are invited to listen to Kim, as he lifts the lid on why IT organisations need end-to-end visibility now:
"As applications become increasingly distributed with hybrid IT environments, IT and DevOps professionals face the challenge of ensuring performance regardless of deployment topology. Moreover, as the living dynamics of modern applications evolve over their lifecycle, one cannot only rely on the network behaviors of today to accurately reflect the traffic patterns for tomorrow. Network and application management software must give additional visibility into the entirety of hybrid IT deployments and provide continuous insight into the network and its impact on applications to deliver optimal experience for end users. Intelligent software allows administrators to provide optimal productivity decisions to changing physical, virtual or container network flows by giving you a real-time map of the network, and continually analysing and recommending the most efficient topology deployment that considers both the application requirements and infrastructure capabilities."
