SolarWinds Delivers Windows System and Application Change Detection through New Server Configuration Monitor (SCM 1.0)
Built on the Orion Platform, a modular, scalable, unified monitoring architecture, the first generation of the SolarWinds Server Configuration Monitor (SCM 1.0) provides visibility into configuration changes on Windows servers and applications that have taken place over time, helping technology professionals correlate configuration changes to performance.
Deeper DevOps Environment Monitoring in SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor 6.7
SAM is designed to provide end-to-end visibility, as well as server and application performance monitoring, using agent-based and agentless technologies across multiple data centers, remote locations, and the cloud. The latest update, version 6.7, now includes container monitoring for Docker, Kubernetes, and Mesos, and can assist in troubleshooting container-based applications and workloads, with the goal of improving monitoring and troubleshooting DevOps environments.
Optimize SDS Monitoring with VMware vSAN Support in Virtualization Manager (VMAN) 8.3
The latest update, version 8.3, offers customers vSAN storage support. Through the update, users can view and monitor VMware software defined storage (vSAN) alongside virtualization performance, from the same console. Customers can also use recommendations to help take the guesswork out of optimization, as well as model capacity planning scenarios for today and tomorrow’s workloads.
Integration with the Orion Platform can deliver deeper virtualization insights, broader infrastructure reporting, informative alerting, cross-stack performance data and metrics, and improved virtualization management.
New Support for Huawei Devices and Expanded Hardware Health Support for Dell EMC Isilon, NetApp Arrays with Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) 6.7

Unified Infrastructure Monitoring through Intelligent Orion Maps and Orion Platform Integration
SolarWinds Intelligent Orion Maps, built on the Orion Platform, is designed to eliminate the need for manual maps and help users easily create and view custom, logical, contextual maps—in near real-time. With just a few clicks, technology professionals can use Intelligent Orion Maps to pull and display application and infrastructure dependencies when troubleshooting a new issue, as well as view virtualization platform recommendations in context application groups.
SolarWinds will publicly demonstrate its updated infrastructure management portfolio at VMworld 2018 US in Las Vegas, Nevada, starting on August 26.
