SolarWinds Introduces New "Head Geeks" to Offer Real-World Advice to IT Professionals

Q: What do you get when you combine a techie, IT evangelist, industry expert and SolarWinds product specialist? A: A SolarWinds Head Geek.  SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today introduced its latest lineup of Head Geeks – Lawrence Garvin and Patrick Hubbard.

 

In their roles as Head Geeks, Lawrence and Patrick will regularly interact with IT pros and SolarWinds customers and provide them with IT industry and product knowledge as well as helpful content including tips and how-tos.

 

IT pros can ask the Head Geeks in-depth questions about SolarWinds product capabilities or any network and systems management pain points or simply strike up a conversation on a number of SolarWinds’ forums or channels such as thwack, Geek Speak,  Twitter and Facebook, to name a few.  There, the Head Geeks will address IT management issues and trends and demonstrate how users can implement a variety of solutions in their unique environments.

 

“Just as SolarWinds has a unique connection with IT end users, the Head Geeks also have real-world IT knowledge – they can relate to the challenges and demands IT pros face and they understand the solutions they seek,” said Sanjay Castelino, VP and market leader, SolarWinds. “Lawrence and Patrick have relationships with IT guys because they are IT guys and can chat about anything from servers to cyborgs.”

 

Lawrence Garvin is an eight-time consecutive recipient of the Microsoft MVP award in recognition for his contributions to the Microsoft TechNet WSUS forum, a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP), and a technical product marketing manager at SolarWinds. He has been working with Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Software Update Services (SUS) since the release of SUS SP1 in 2003, and, generally, since the creation of Windows Update in 1998.

 

Patrick Hubbard is the senior technical product marketing manager at SolarWinds with 20 years of technical expertise and IT customer perspective. His networking management experience includes campus, datacenter, HA/DR networks, storage networks, VoIP/telepresence and VDI Fortune 500 and startups in high tech, transportation, financial services and telecom industries.
