SolarWinds Announces Updates to its SolarWinds ® Database Performance Analyzer

SolarWinds announced significant updates to its SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA). With the enhancements, SolarWinds DPA is the only tool available on the market capable of providing Multi-Dimensional Performance Analysis™ to improve Software as a Service (SaaS) application performance for MySQL®- and Linux®-only IT organisations, helping them reduce costs and improve overall organisational effectiveness. Specifically, SolarWinds DPA now supports MySQL database repositories, enabling SaaS companies running MySQL- and Linux-only infrastructure whether on-premises or in the cloud to fully leverage the tool, whereas a Microsoft® SQL Server® or Oracle® repository were required previously. Additional significant new features in the latest release of SolarWinds DPA include visualisation and analysis to help DBAs optimise for and resolve blocking, locking and deadlock issues, and support for Microsoft SQL Server 2016. Conventional MySQL monitoring tools offer SaaS companies and other predominantly MySQL IT organizations only a simplistic set of database health metrics that are often inadequate in identifying and resolving database bottlenecks impacting application performance. With the latest release, IT professionals working in MySQL- and Linux-only environments are now able to fully leverage the power of SolarWinds DPA due to newly added support for MySQL repositories. Support for MySQL repositories also enables IT professionals with SQL Server, Oracle, Microsoft Azure® or Amazon® RDS environments to reduce licensing fee costs by leveraging a lower-cost MySQL repository. Blocks and locks are normal functions within a database, but poor query performance will increase blocking time and negatively impact application performance. SolarWinds DPA now empowers DBAs with SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and SAP® ASE databases to identify root blockers and the total wait they are causing, focus on the most important queries to reduce blocking time, see which objects are waiting the longest because of blocking and quickly identify the last query of an idle blocker to track down the last active session. Deadlocks are an extreme blocking scenario that occurs when two or more blocking sessions are waiting for the other to release a lock on a table or other resource, but neither can release the lock. Databases resolve these contentions by selecting a victim and survivor. SolarWinds DPA now not only alerts when SQL Server deadlocks occur, but also identifies victims and the overall victim impact-the information necessary to help DBAs determine why a deadlock occurred and how to resolve deadlocking issues. With the newly added support for SQL Server 2016, SolarWinds DPA now supports the very latest versions of the top three major relational database platforms-MySQL 5.7, Oracle 12c and SQL Server 2016. SolarWinds DPA pricing starts at £1315 for MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle Standard Edition, and £2305 for DB2 and SAP ASE.

SolarWinds Adds Support for EMC® XtremIO® and Pure Storage® All-Flash Arrays (AFAs) to its SolarWinds® Storage Resource Monitor

SolarWinds announced it has added support for EMC® XtremIO® and Pure Storage® all-flash arrays (AFAs) to its SolarWinds® Storage Resource Monitor (SRM). SolarWinds SRM provides IT professionals with the necessary insights into multi-vendor traditional and flash storage resources and their potential performance impact to enhance business-critical application performance. With the expanded device support, SolarWinds SRM helps ensure that any IT organsation's deployment of EMC XtremIO and Pure Storage AFAs, as well as other flash-based storage, provides the expected improvements to application performance. Combined with its already broad support of traditional storage devices, SolarWinds SRM is now even more uniquely capable of maximising the performance of multi-generational storage environments all from within a single tool. SolarWinds SRM provides IT departments the following benefits across traditional and AFA storage deployments: Unified heterogeneous storage monitoring; Storage performance monitoring with status and usage thresholds; Automated storage capacity planning; Prebuilt and custom alerting and storage resource reporting. SolarWinds SRM also integrates with the SolarWinds Orion® platform, allowing storage performance data collected to be incorporated with data from SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager and SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer into the platform's AppStack environment view, thereby giving IT departments end-to-end visibility into the complete underlying application infrastructure to better troubleshoot application performance issues. With real-time visibility into heterogeneous SAN and NAS arrays and integration with the AppStack environment dashboard, IT professionals are able to view and manage an IT environment from array to application.

SolarWinds Launches First Technology Created to Bridge the Visibility Gap of Hybrid IT

SolarWinds announced a revolutionary release of the network administrator's trusted tool, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM). With the release of SolarWinds NPM 12, the company's product and tool relied on by tens of thousands of IT departments now features NetPath and Network Insight. For the first time, these two new capabilities give network administrators the hybrid IT visual insights and analysis needed for visibility into the performance of services across not only the networks they own, but those of their service providers and cloud vendors as well. These innovations empower IT professionals to provide the application performance end users expect and businesses need in today's on-demand environments. According to the most recent SolarWinds IT Trends Report, 87% of organizations have migrated some infrastructure to the cloud, yet 60% state they will likely never transition all services offsite, making hybrid IT the reality for the foreseeable future. In such complex hybrid IT environments, network administrators need the ability to view the performance details of and pinpoint bottlenecks on all the networks connecting critical services and applications, whether they be on-premises or in the cloud. The addition of NetPath makes SolarWinds NPM 12 the only network monitoring software that visually maps hybrid network paths alongside on-premises data. For example, NetPath gives IT professionals whose organizations use cloud-based applications such as Salesforce the ability to identify the exact location of a performance issue -- whether on the internal LAN, with a WAN provider or on the cloud application vendor's own network -- and provides actionable insights for resolution. Specific NetPath features include: Dynamic and visual hop-by-hop analysis of critical paths and devices along the entire network delivery path -- on-premises, in the cloud or across hybrid IT environments; Specific, actionable information to resolve network issues regardless of network ownership; Automatic and dynamic thresholds to identify unhealthy critical paths and network nodes, providing an estimated 50% faster time to resolution; Visualized critical path performance over time for historical views of network latency; Identification of device configuration changes along critical paths when integrated with SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager; and Immediate insight into the traffic travelling across flow-enabled devices impacting network performance when integrated with SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer. While NetPath provides breadth of visibility, Network Insight provides depth by enabling comprehensive monitoring of load balancing environments that empowers IT professionals with deeper network intelligence, including dynamic and visual insight into the performance of applications and service delivery. Specific Network Insight features include: Visualization of entire load balancing environments; Graphical display of relationships and component status; and Visualization of component details in a single console.
