SolarWinds at VMworld 2017

Level 13

The SolarWinds “Virtualization Monitoring with Discipline” VMworld tour is about to start and we are bringing solutions and swag.

VMworld US

At VMworld® US in Las Vegas, the SolarWinds family is bringing a new shirt, new stickers and buttons, new socks, and a new morning event. And that’s not all we’re bringing to VMworld.

  • Join us on Tuesday morning for the inaugural Monitoring Morning as KMSigma and I talk about monitoring at scale and troubleshooting, respectively.


  • Next, don’t forget to attend sqlrockstar's two speaking sessions. He'll speak about monster database VMs, and join a panel session on best practices when virtualizing data. Also, be sure to check out chrispaap's talk on mastering the virtual universe using foundational skills, such as monitoring with discipline.

    • Solutions Exchange
      Monday, August 28     2:50 – 3:10 p.m.

  • Lastly, visit us at booth number 224 to talk to our SMEs, get your questions answered, and pick up your swag.

In the lead-up to the event, we’ll be hosting a pre-VMworld Europe webcast to talk shop about Virtualization Manager and its virtue for empowering troubleshooting in the highly virtualized domain of hybrid IT.

  • sqlrockstar will again be speaking in the following session.
    • Wednesday, September 13        12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

  • chrispaap and I, along with our SolarWinds EMEA SMEs, will be in the booth to answer your questions, talk shop about monitoring with discipline, and hand out swag.

I’ll update this section with details as they become available.

Let me know in the comment section if you will be in attendance at VMworld US or VMworld Europe. If you can’t make it to one of these events, let me know how we at SolarWinds can better meet and exceed your virtualization pain points.

Level 20

Sounds like a fun trip... especially going to Europe... the location is coincidentally a little off due to recent events but otherwise sounds good.

Level 13

Watch out for the run away vans....  Would love to go.

Dang, wish I could make's hoping I'll catch y'all next year @ VMworld.

I'll be waiting for my Thwack-paid travel & hotel information . . .

Level 9

Missing VMworld for 1st time in last 4 years , have fun all & see you in 2018!


Good one.

It'd sure be nice to spread the wealth around and host these more regionally.  When shows are always in Vegas or Orlando, they're off limits for my company's travel budget, and my personal travel funds and PTO are spent getting away from cities, not going to them.


And just coincidentally, I wear Thwack swag in the wilderness. ;^)

Level 13

I'm so's so hard to get permission to travel to the States with public money...

Level 14

I'm curious if you have, or can gather, so information comparing Orion to vRealize? I've had the sales pitch, and they make a compelling argument in a strictly VMWare environment. I'm curious the takeaways you can gather or the feedback you can provide on the subject/comparison.


Level 12

Wish i can be there.
