SRM 6.5 was made available in the Customer Portal on September 13th! The release notes are a great place to get a broad overview of everything in this release. Exciting times since SRM also joined in other Q3 releases from SolarWinds (NPM, NTA, NCM, UDT, IPAM, DPA, & VMAN). We’ve been attending shows, monitoring customer requests and our theme for Q3 is expanding our already comprehensive list of device support! In fact, I would say that FLASH was our Primary focus, sprinkled with a bit of HYBRID Array models. We constantly measure various Storage Market Sectors, speak with analysts and rely on customer feedback with regard to Storage architecture and growth. This research has led us to recognize that Flash-Type Array solutions are a rapidly growing market sector and we want to be there when you are looking to renew your Storage environment, providing a path for you to continue using SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor! Of course, there are some other worthy reasons to upgrade to SRM 6.5 like UI, Installer, and Perfstack enhancements, along with continued additions towards monitoring Array Hardware Health!!
