One of the great benefits of Orion is that its really easy to install and easy to use. Nevertheless, new customers often find that they can get more out of the product if they invest a little time in training. Notice that I say time and not money, because SolarWinds offers quite a bit of online training for free. Here are a couple of useful resources for getting more out of what you’ve already bought. 

First, we’ve got a training session that’s already been recorded. Just click on the link below and start watching.
