As you may have heard by now, SolarWinds acquired Hyper9 and we have a new set of geeks and technologies to help us take this thing to 11. And let me tell you – this is a cool bunch of folks and an awesome set of products…

If you’re like most of us, virtualization technology is impacting almost every aspect of your IT infrastructure. It changes the way we think about servers, databases, storage, networking – pretty much all of it. At SolarWinds, we’ve been adding virtualization monitoring features to our products over the past year or so and this acquisition just took our capabilities in this area up several notches.

Not only is the technology spectacular, but the people are fantastic. One of the folks you’ll be hearing from soon is David Marshall, author of vmblog.com and a member of the Hyper9 -- now SolarWinds -- team. Let me tell you, we are going to have some fun figuring out how we can help our combined communities even more with free education, webcasts, blog posts and more on all of our technology areas like networking, system administration, storage, and of course – virtualization. He is sharing his perspective over at the Hyper9 site, check it out.

To kick this thing off right, we’re hosting a webcast on Wednesday, January 26th at 11:00 a.m. CST where we’ll do a deep dive on the Hyper9 product suite and explain how you can use these products to take the management of your virtualization infrastructure to the next level.  Register here.

I hope to see you on the webcast and until then…

Flame on...
