    Hybrid IT - which means the weird "some of it's here and some of it's not" state of infrastructure - isn't something that sys admins ever asked for - it's the side effect of other technologies like Cloud and SaaS. It's become more than a buzzword - it's a burdensome reality because, despite the apparent business benefits, it's one more headache for ops folks who have to keep the joint running.

    SolarWinds Head Geeks Patrick Hubbard and Leon Adato will give an overview of the real-world Hybrid IT frustrations gleaned from hundreds of customers, commiserate with audience members who may be in the same boat, and provide actionable approaches to take the pain out of ensuring delivery of critical services regardless of where they reside.

    This live, demo-driven presentation will focus on several core techniques to provide deep visibility into critical network paths regardless of location: on premises, off premises, or in a hybrid IT environment. We'll also discuss:

    • Why the internet doesn't work the way you think it does (even if you are a network engineer)
    • Challenges associated with monitoring devices or network paths outside of your network
    • Network performance troubleshooting using critical path analysis
    • Network visibility in a hybrid world
    • Mapping application and service performance to network infrastructure
    • Rapid troubleshooting of hot spots across the entire delivery chain
