What Does SolarWinds Have Planned for VMworld 2016? 

As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2016 coverage coming up in a few weeks, we're in the process of working up our schedules to make sure we can see and learn as much as possible when the show kicks off.  VMworld is the leading virtualization event, and there is no shortage of great information coming out of the keynotes, the breakout sessions, the networking and more.  But every year, one of the key places to learn a lot in a short amount of time is the Solutions Expo where valuable vendors from the VMware ecosystem and beyond set up shop to display their wares. 

Over the years, VMworld has always had a large turnout of vendors sponsoring the event.  And the expo floor always seems massive!  With so many vendors exhibiting, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your schedule?

One of those companies on my schedule is SolarWinds.  They are known in the IT industry for providing powerful and affordable IT management software.  Virtualization administrators know or need to know about Virtualization Manager, a monitoring and management solution that helps with optimizing, identifying and remediating VMware and Hyper-V issues.  Definitely get them on your must see list to learn more about this virtualization management software and their other cloud and IT related tools that you might want to include in your toolkit. 

SolarWinds provides powerful and affordable IT management software to customers worldwide from Fortune 500 enterprises to small businesses, government agencies and educational institutions. We are committed to focusing exclusively on IT Pros, and strive to eliminate the complexity that they have been forced to accept from traditional enterprise software vendors. Regardless of where the IT asset or user sits, SolarWinds delivers products that are easy to find, buy, use, maintain, and scale while providing the power to address all key areas of the infrastructure from on-premises to the Cloud.

Read this exclusive pre-show interview with SolarWinds to learn what they have planned for the upcoming VMworld 2016 event.
