SolarWinds: Live From Tech Field Day San Jose

The Tech Field Day staff have been working behind the scenes to improve the quality and timeliness of video output from our event. We are pleased to present the first result of this work, in the form of live streaming from Tech Field Day 4 in San Jose this week.

After fighting yet more networking gremlins, Tech Field Day resumed at The Hoffman Agency wit a presentation by SolarWinds. We had come to expect quite a lot from this company after their fine presentation at Net Field Day in September, and the delegates were not disappointed. SolarWinds discussed their various management products, as well as their approach to high availability and database design.

The Delegate roundtable revealed that almost everyone knew of SolarWinds, and two used their products in production! Many positive comments were made about the product as well as their “Thwack” online community.
