AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2013) - SolarWinds (
"As IT evolves and infrastructures become more complex, IT pros are challenged with leveraging new technologies like Software Defined Networking (SDN) in combination with their existing infrastructure management tools to optimize the efficiency of their networks," said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management, SolarWinds. "This demonstration of integration between SolarWinds and Plexxi is a powerful example of how the vast amounts of information already being gathered by network management systems can be leveraged within SDN deployments."
Plexxi and SolarWinds will demonstrate a unique DevOps integration that builds and maintains Plexxi Affinities, or descriptions of IT infrastructure interactions, using network information for both physical and virtual nodes derived from SolarWinds network management software.
"Plexxi's application-centric approach to IT infrastructure combined with SolarWinds' ability to easily detect and diagnose potential problems before they become issues is what DevOps is all about," said Mat Mathews, co-founder and VP of Product Management at Plexxi. "This integration is what will help companies manage their evolving networks while keeping operational expenses under control."
