Are you losing visibility into what your teams are doing in Office 365, or even into the performance and availability of this productivity suite? The benefits of the cloud shouldn’t come at the cost of your insight and control across your hybrid IT environment.
That’s where SolarWinds can help – whether you’re still planning your move, or looking to clarify your view into, Office 365, our Office 365 monitoring tools can help you sail through the clouds.
As VMware vExpert, Veeam Vanguard, and Cisco Champion Matt Crape notes, just because your organization transitioned to Office 365, it doesn’t mean you can put your feet up and watch cat videos. Tech pros are still responsible for making sure users can keep collaborating – and moving to the cloud doesn’t mean your work is done, it’s just different.
Monitoring Office 365 differs from monitoring traditional deployments of Exchange and SharePoint, but it also opens up opportunities to expand your hybrid IT/cloud engineer skillset – from managing SharePoint permissions to auditing user access – giving you the ability to upscale your Exchange and SharePoint monitoring mojo. In this episode of SolarWinds Lab, Phoummala Schmitt joins Head Geeks Patrick Hubbard and 10-time Microsoft MVP Thomas LaRock to dig into assuring great services, regardless of where they live.
As Phoummala Schmitt shares in this episode of SolarWinds Lab, running Exchange is a full-time job. But when you move to Office 365, you can shift from just maintaining the server to focus on Exchange management and optimizing your organization’s access and availability – and streamlining the email alerts that help you keep everything humming.
“The ability to monitor applications and systems both on-premises and in the cloud is important to our organization as we move forward. No matter which path we choose... SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, Private cloud, Public cloud, etc, this product allows us to be flexible to the needs of the business and costs.”
“With SAM, we currently monitor our on-premise infrastructure, our colocation equipment, and multiple cloud providers. We are able to customize for each environment, yet still manage them in a single pane of glass.”
"If you have a hybrid environment with applications in multiple languages, SolarWinds SAM is the way to go. You can never go wrong with all the centralized monitoring it has.”
