THWACK Monthly Mission - January 2017


Thwacksters, it is important that you remember the journey to the cloud begins with one step.

In this mission you will encounter spiritual cloud guides on your way to the snow-capped peaks where happy little clouds roam. These guides include: Librato, Papertrail, TraceView, and Pingdom.  Use the wisdom and hints they give you each day to answer the questions.

By the end of your journey you will learn that SolarWinds Monitoring Cloud is a suite of SaaS products that helps you solve complex performance and reliability problems with your cloud infrastructure or apps.

We wish you luck as you embark on your journey to the cloud.

Wax on, wax off. Wax on, wax off.
