Livecast Series: Discovering Observability - Your Next Great Journey in IT

It's time to join the Observability revolution. Now is your chance to expand the visibility of your infrastructure from mature monitoring to super-charged Observability. Our next THWACK® Livecast series is all about understanding how to obtain Observability within your infrastructure – regardless of where the services, servers, or end-users operate.

Session One – May 19, 10 a.m. CT, 1 hour

Charting a Course to Clearer Visibility

Presented by: Ben Keen (the_ben_keen) and Brian Radovich (bmrad)

As a monitoring professional, you’re responsible for tracking the elements in your infrastructure – regardless of where they live. You have the metrics, you’re collecting the logs, and you’re tracing the most important business processes, so you already have the critical parts required for true infrastructure visibility. But correlating the data, detecting anomalies, and being informed when things go awry is the challenge. Knowing a value is outside a threshold is great, but does that constitute a problem? Thankfully, SolarWinds® Hybrid Cloud Observability is here to give you that next level of insight.

After this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand how Hybrid Cloud Observability can help you surface important information
  • Explain the difference between each Hybrid Cloud Observability scale
  • See how you can easily drill down and aid in root cause analysis
  • Easily transition from tools you already know to a strangely familiar platform

You won’t want to miss this discussion with Brian Radovich, product manager for Hybrid Cloud Observability and Ben Keen, community manager for THWACK®, as they discuss how and why a complete Observability solution is the logical next step in the evolution of your monitoring. Join this session to ask questions in the chat, so we can answer them live on the air.

Session Two – June 16, 10 a.m. CT, 1 hour

Observation Is More than Monitoring

Presented by: Kevin M. Sparenberg (KMSigma) and Tony Johnson (tony.johnson)

You’re ready to take the leap and move your existing Orion® Platform infrastructure to Hybrid Cloud Observability, but we know you’ll have questions. So, we’ve put together some people who can answer these questions in a way that’s easily digestible for current Orion Platform users.

After this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand what to do before undertaking a migration
  • Audit your existing infrastructure to determine what’s important to prioritize
  • Plan your account migration for a seamless and scalable experience
  • Perform a migration of your infrastructure – including your scalability engines

Kevin M. Sparenberg, technical content manager for the THWACK® Community and Tony Johnson, product manager for Hybrid Cloud Observability will discuss what you need to know during your planning, execution, and implementation stages for a seamless migration strategy. Join this session to ask questions in the chat, so we can answer them live on the air.

Session Three – July 21, 10 a.m. CT, 1 hour

Extending Visibility Beyond the Edge

Presented by: Kevin M. Sparenberg (KMSigma) and Arun Annavarapu (aannavar)

Success! Hybrid Cloud Observability is installed and running, but you’re still struggling to get that “single-pane-of-glass” experience between your on-premises infrastructure and cloud services. Managing two systems—even if they’re running the same software—is an unnecessary burden and we’re here to help you with the next steps. This session is about connecting your data between Hybrid Cloud Observability and SolarWinds Observability for combined insights and increased visibility.

After this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the deployment options for your cloud infrastructure
  • Explain how a single view will keep your IT teams in sync
  • Quickly determine what needs to be raised to management

Join Arun Annavarapu, product manager for SolarWinds Observability, and Kevin M. Sparenberg, technical content manager for the THWACK® Community, as they discuss the best ways to get your clouds connected and bring clarity to your monitoring solution. Be sure to ask questions in the chat, so we can answer them live on the air.
