This is one corner… of one IT environment, in one company, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a virtual universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond.


In this month’s mission we challenge you to: analyze the past, fix the present, and prepare for the future of your virtual environment. You won’t be alone, however, accompanying you on your quest will be an arsenal of virtual monitoring tools known as SolarWinds Virtualization Manager v7!


The way we see it, if you’re going to build a virtual time machine, why not do it with some style?


Let’s see what’s out there, THWACKsters!
