So, we are still well wrapped in the holiday season. I know many of you are busy getting ready to get out of the server room for a while, or, more than likely, setting up times where you know everyone else is out of the office and you can make some IOS upgrades, push some config and password complexity changes, and get your latest desktop or laptop image perfected before rollout in the new year.
I know things are super busy here, too. While many people may be gearing up for time with their families, or psychologically preparing for the same *grin*, many others are figuring out how we can stay ahead of the game, listen to our community, respond intelligently both in and out of our product offerings, and help you, the person who does the job, who makes sure the infrastructure is sound, who plans for the next outage, the next traffic spike, the next storage explosion on the mail server.
I am looking forward to the launch of our new community platform in the new year. I cannot wait to give you all a more stable, searchable, enjoyable place to interact both with one another and the staff of SolarWinds. We know how important you are. We know you help us succeed as a company and are an integral part of the core, of our success. You can see it in black and white right here: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/SolarWinds-Taps-Social-Media-ibd-1135259706.html.
As we head into the new year, these words from the CEO are carrying me forward:
We don't control the conversations. They can say good or bad things about us. What's important is that we're getting them to engage.
That "them" is you. Thank you for engaging with us. Have a safe holiday all.
