Exchange Email Is Mission Critical to Business' Operational Success, SolarWinds Seeks to Simplify the Growing Complexity of Email Management

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor's New AppInsight for Microsoft Exchange Technology Enables sysadmins and Exchange admins to Interpret End-User Email Behavior and Proactively Address Email as a Business-Critical Application, Avoiding Downtime and t

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/14 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI)

According to one of the leading research firms in the space, The Radicati Group, the MS Exchange market is estimated to grow to 470 million mailboxes by the end of the year and 85 percent of this market is still on-premise.* This mission-critical application deserves a stronger and more effective means of management.

SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its continued commitment to providing greater application visibility to its application and server monitoring software, SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM). The latest version of SolarWinds SAM shines a light on oft-neglected email management with its new AppInsight for Microsoft Exchange, which empowers sysadmins and Exchange admins to proactively prevent downtime of business-critical email application availability with comprehensive technology that has traditionally only been available in expensive, specialized tools.

With SolarWinds SAM's new AppInsight for Exchange, admins can automate routine data collection -- formerly done by running tens or hundreds of PowerShell scripts -- and employ the unique agentless technology to quickly identify and tackle performance issues affecting the Microsoft Exchange Server, such as:

  • Assessing mailbox database capacity
  • Freeing capacity hogged by dormant mailboxes
  • Addressing error caused by individual user behavior

"Email is a business-critical application for which uptime means all time, and as long as it's running smoothly, management happily ignores IT," said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management, SolarWinds. "The new AppInsight for Exchange thus gives sysadmins and Exchange admins a competitive edge by automating previously tedious and time-consuming email management tasks and freeing up that time to focus on the forward-thinking application and IT infrastructure improvements that their bosses want to see to help 'move the needle' for the business -- and all the while, SolarWinds SAM is working to keep email functioning as it should."

The new AppInsight for Exchange technology further develops SolarWinds SAM's application management capabilities by integrating with the recently added AppInsight for SQL Server, which provides instant visibility into database performance issues, collectively empowering admins in businesses of all sizes and MSPs to achieve server, hardware, application and database monitoring in a single, powerful solution.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools, to creating feedback loops improving product design, to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from ...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
