New Orion 2020.2.1 releases now generally available

Product Manager

The SolarWinds® Product Management team is happy to announce the general availability of the new 2020.2.1 version of our Orion® Platform products.   Although we typically don't package new features into a service release, these features were too exciting to hold back.   Download now through your Customer Portal or

Network Automation Manager (NAM)  

Introducing Orion Remote Collectors (ORCs) for additional flexibility deploying to remote locations. ORCs are a lightweight, localized polling option to monitor distributed locations on-premises. ORCs include automatic data storage and forwarding for easy monitoring even in low-bandwidth/high-latency environments.  See the NAM 2020.2.1 release blog for more details.  

Server and Application Monitor (SAM)

SAM improved the usability of our API pollers by including a simple interface allowing customers to manage all of their API pollers in one place. API pollers have been enhanced to include string monitoring, and chaining of requests to broaden our support for monitoring devices and SaaS services.  ORCs are also available for node-based SAM licenses.  See the SAM 2020.2.1 release blog for more details.  

Server Configuration Monitor (SCM)

SCM added policy compliance monitoring and reporting.  Assign out-of-the-box DISA STiG policies to your servers, applications and databases, and determine how well your environment meets the compliance standards.   Rule details also include remediation steps to help bring your systems into compliance. See the SCM 2020.2.1 release blog for more details.  

Virtualization Manager (VMAN) 

VMAN now delivers chargeback reporting, so IT groups can better understand costs associated with their virtual infrastructure. Intuitive reporting with VMAN allows IT to specify hosts or clusters, choose a given timeframe, then deliver an account of their costs based on CPU, memory, storage, and vCPU usage.  See the VMan 2020.2.1 release blog for more details.

Level 20

For a second you guys tricked me... I started seeing all these 2020.2.1 posts and initially though it was about the new SEM 2020.2.1 version that was just released.  Now all the product version numbers are looking the same... that will take a little getting used to.


Level 16

Upgraded to 2020.2.1 a few weeks back and everything has been working fine. 

About the Author
Ok, so I have been a geek for a long time, went to UT finally ended up at a startup, Tek-Tools where we built a monitoring and reporting product for Servers, Backups, Storage and Applications. In Jan 2010, Solarwinds bought Tek-Tools, and I was added to the PM team. When my mind actually wonders from making our products better, I am generally spending time with my family, reading, watching sports, arguing politics or tinkering with stuff (it can always be made better), with the occasional camping trip thrown in for good measure.
