Level 15

This round had us all on the edge of our seats as we hovered around our monitors waiting for the winner to be declared.

It was down to the wire, almost too close to call! The mission clock ticked down the final seconds.. "Do you believe in miracles?! YES!"

The champion of our Free tool Brack-IT-Ology is... Network Analyzer & Bandwidth Monitoring Bundle (NABMB)!

See below for the championship round highlights & read the more in-depth explanation below.

NABMB V SW Admin Bundle for Active Directory

Winner of Champion Round: NABMB

SW Admin Bundle for Active Directory held its own throughout the entire battle but in the end its inability to monitor Active Directory and related applications caused for it to come up short against the champion NABMB!

Need a powerful tool to monitor Active Directory and a whole lot more?

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM), can proactively monitor Active Directory performance and related application components like SQL, Microsoft® Exchange, and the underlying hardware health.

The winner was hidden in the card itself the whole time.  If you didn't notice, she is cutting down the net which is the tradition of the Champion!  Congrats to all the winners!

Very true... but I took the bait on the design of the Mission Badge. Front & center is the afro for SW Admin... Solarwinds was very tricky this mission.  :-)

I am not sure if this was covered in another thread... but when I look at my Mission badges I see 10+ of these. Is this going to be cleaned up to be just 1?
