SD-WAN – What, How, and Why It’s Got Your Number

Complex, statically defined network device monitoring is increasingly moving from physical to software-defined networks. With the rising adoption of SD-WAN technologies, we're left with more questions than answers. To get to the bottom of our SD-WAN queries, we surveyed hundreds of users to clarify hot topics with which we're all grappling. In this panel, you'll learn from SolarWinds thought leaders and industry expert Dr. Jim Metzler how to plan for and capitalize on SD-WAN projects now and in the future with insights from our IT community.  

About the Author
I'm the Head Geek and technical marketing director at SolarWinds, (which basically means I'm an mature geek in the services of the product team). When I say geek I mean Geek, with extreme prejudice. I started writing assembly on my Apple II, got a BITNET email account in 1984, ran a BBS @ 300 baud, survived X.25, abused Token Ring, got some Netscape.com JavaScript award love in '96, and my hack flight notification service still backs aa.com. Along the way in various jobs I’ve been a developer, SE, PM, PMM, and now principal evangelist. (Let us all join hands around the server.) Over 10 years at SolarWinds I’ve hatched our online live demo systems, managed the SolarWinds Certified Professional program, launched the Head Geek program, helmed SolarWinds Lab and THWACKcamp, and these days I’m focused on the hairball that is Hybrid IT, Cloud, DevOps and helping IT admins learn new skills not just to manage increasing complexity, but accelerate their careers. I’m always looking for new and more fiendish ways to use our products- just like our customers. And when I have a few spare minutes I fly a little when the weather is good.
