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.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
