SolarWinds Head Geek™ and VMware® vExpert, Thomas LaRock, will present best practices for monitoring and optimizing virtualized database servers in an interactive session
CORK, Ireland – September 5, 2017 – SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its participation at VMworld® 2017 Europe, September 11-14, 2017, in Barcelona, Spain. At the event, SolarWinds Head Geek and VMware vExpert, Thomas LaRock, along with David Klee, will present on performance tuning and monitoring for virtualized database servers on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. CEST. The company will also demonstrate updates to the SolarWinds® Orion® Platform and across its systems management product portfolio.
“Databases are at the heart of most applications. Mission-critical database platforms require a different approach to virtualization from other applications,” said LaRock. “Critical databases are resource-intensive, latency-sensitive, and are often the last to migrate to a virtualized environment. In my interactive session, I’ll share tips on how to successfully virtualize database platforms, optimize performance, and address scalability concerns so that DBAs can avoid the blame game with the infrastructure team.”
