Introducing SolarWinds Mobile Admin
A few months back we acquired a new product that is going to change the way you manage your IT infrastructure. For years SolarWinds customers have asked for a mobile solution for monitoring and managing your infrastructure, something better than our attempt at a ‘mobile view.’ Given the line of work you’re in, how much time and heartache could you have saved if you had just been able to resolve a certain issue from your Android phone or iPad? How many times have you upset your wife or disappointed your kiddos because you had to promptly leave dinner or the t-ball game to reset a password for an executive who had somehow managed to lock himself out of his laptop? Those days are now a thing of the past; hello Mobile Admin! Mobile Admin does so much, there’s simply no way I could cover its benefits in a single blog post (it supports over 40 IT management and monitoring tools, and you can find a complete list of features here). Instead I’ll briefly discuss some of the more common use cases it supports, as well as a brief overview of the architecture and how it works. Let’s start with SolarWinds NPM (clearly my selection is objective and free of any bias).
For those of you who don’t spend the majority of your day staring at the Orion web console waiting for lights to turn red, you probably rely pretty heavily on alerts. An issue occurs, you’re alerted on it via the rules you’ve configured, you log into the Orion web console to see what the issue is, then you try to fix it or escalate to the group that can. Now you can do all of that on your smart phone or tablet from anywhere using Mobile Admin. I can hear the sighs of disbelief already, but I promise you, it’s true, and I’ll show you how.
