Hosting Plexxi DemoFridays™ for the past year has been a pretty amazing experience. Their team is chock-full of rock stars, and the technology is truly leading-edge. Each demo, they share the stage with partners such as:
Friday’s Plexxi demo is no different. Simon McCormack, Plexxi’s director of product management and Rob Hock, SolarWind’s product manager of the Orion platform are going to walk us through some incredible functionality made possible by the relationship between the Data Services Engine (DSE) and network performance monitoring (NPM) solutions. This isn’t a “Plexxi 101” demo — we’re advancing to the 200-level courses, so if you haven’t seen a Plexxi demo yet, please be sure to check one out.
The demo with Simon and Rob will:
- Show how SolarWinds gets device info for the VM and physical host
- Detail the data discovery process
- Share current data aggregation methods
- Reveal how SolarWinds monitors the entire Plexxi network
From Plexxi’s side, Simon is going to walk us through how he:
- Defines rules
- Rebuilds topology (easily)
- Grabs the “goldmine of data” that Plexxi can use from SolarWinds
We’ll also learn a bit about the Thwack community and it’s value to developers and companies such as Plexxi.
