SolarWinds to Address Overcoming Observability Challenges at Microsoft Ignite 2021

Company to deliver presentation on the criticality of adding database performance monitoring to observability practices and showcase its Orion Platform to support full-stack observability

SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of simple, powerful, and secure IT management software, today announced it will serve as a showcase sponsor and participant at the Microsoft Ignite® virtual conference on November 2-4, 2021. Microsoft® Data Platform expert and SolarWinds Head Geek Kevin Kline will share the benefits of adding database performance monitoring to an organization’s observability practices. The company will also showcase its SolarWinds® Orion® Platform in its virtual demo center.

“As organizations optimize digital transformation, it’s helpful to understand what’s happening across multi-level and multi-component IT systems to achieve centralized visibility and full-stack integration for hybrid environments,” said Rohini Kasturi, chief product officer, SolarWinds. “Our goal at Microsoft Ignite is to share insights and best practices for collecting metrics from all endpoints and external outputs of complex infrastructures to determine the state of all systems across all environments. Because databases—and therein, the data—are central to this endeavor, we’ll zero in on how to perform this effectively and how our solutions can help.”

Database Observability: Your Weakest Link

Microsoft Data Platform expert and SolarWinds Head Geek Kevin Kline will participate in a speaking session on “Database Observability: Your Weakest Link,” available on-demand to registrants. The session will share the importance of adding database performance monitoring to your observability best practices. Databases drive application performance and while they tend to cause application performance issues, many enterprises overlook observability within databases. Attendees will learn more about observability for optimal database performance and how SolarWinds can help.

With more than 30 years of experience in the database and software industry, Kline is a 17-time Microsoft Data Platform MVP, noted leader and speaker in the SQL Server® community, and author of SQL in a Nutshell along with many other books on data and databases.
