The new SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) provides IT pros with the necessary insight into storage resources and their consequent impact on virtual environments to ultimately ensure business-critical application performance. With SolarWinds SRM’s real-time visibility into heterogeneous SAN and NAS arrays and integration with the Orion technology backbone’s virtualization, server and application monitoring components, IT pros can see into an IT environment from array to application.
SolarWinds SRM collects storage resource data to provide greater context into overall storage performance, allowing IT pros access to status, customizable UI dashboards, streamlined permissions, custom properties, alerting, role-based access control, and more.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM) features several powerful new enhancements and expanded application support, allowing IT pros to better maintain business-critical application performance. IT pros with heterogeneous IT environments can now monitor apps and servers on premises or in the cloud and can assess application performance as it relates to other IT infrastructure components within the new AppStack dashboard.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager and SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM) are now integrated into SolarWinds’ Orion technology backbone for more comprehensive insight into IT infrastructure performance. This integration also allows the insertion of critical virtualization and Web performance data within SolarWinds’ AppStack dashboard for greater visibility into the health and performance of applications.
What is Orion?
Orion is the unique platform technology that is the backbone of many SolarWinds solutions across network (performance, traffic, configuration, IP addresses, etc.), systems (servers and applications, storage) and beyond. Orion collects data on the health of these various IT infrastructure components and displays the results in a common, easy-to-understand dashboard. Monitoring functionalities include reporting and alerting and management functionalities include built-in remediation actions like starting/stopping processes, deleting snapshots, starting websites and more.
With Orion modules for virtualization and Web performance monitoring, SolarWinds empowers IT pros to share critical performance metrics and data among other modules within Orion. This information is also now visible in the AppStack dashboard, so that IT pros can see the status and relationships among website user experience, applications, servers, and virtual and storage infrastructure layers. By having complete visibility from the array to the application, users are able to pinpoint the source of application performance issues in seconds.
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager provides comprehensive VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V capacity planning, performance monitoring, VM sprawl control, configuration management, and chargeback automation. With new integration into the Orion technology backbone and AppStack dashboard-enablement, Virtualization Manager shows the datastore level of detail that bridges the critical details from Storage Resource Monitor to Server & Application Monitor.
SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor helps IT pros troubleshoot Web application performance issues for internal or customer-facing uses (CRM, ERP, help desk, intranet), providing powerful and easy website monitoring for applications on both sides of the firewall. With full Orion functionality and AppStack dashboard integration, customers can find the root cause of application performance issues across website and infrastructure resources all in a single pane of glass. With SolarWinds WPM, IT pros can:
SolarWinds’ new AppStack dashboard integrates the monitoring of applications, servers, storage resources and virtualization into single pane of glass to show the status of all IT infrastructure components that ultimately impact an application and its user, anticipating the common question, “what’s causing the application problem?” Now IT pros can see the application dependencies among applications, servers, virtual servers and storage infrastructure to locate the problem and can correlate events and performance across multiple domains.
SolarWinds’ AppStack is not a standalone product, but rather a capability built into SolarWinds’ systems management products to provide a complete view of the interconnected components of an IT infrastructure. Born from SolarWinds’ Orion technology backbone, AppStack provides a strategic IT performance management platform with which an IT pro can customize and launch an IT infrastructure monitoring and management solution for the specific needs of any organization and can grow and change that solution as the organization grows and changes.
