solarwinds-thwack-online-communityOK OK, I’m not really talking smack – this is simply my attempts at coming up with catchier blog titles and that rhymed so I thought it would be a good idea – nonetheless – I feel like it failed..

But down to business – Solarwinds and Stephen Foskett have granted myself with the honor of being a thwack ambassador for the month of September – and my topic – database analysis and performance.  I know what you might be thinking its odd for this virtualization geek to be talking about database performance, but the fact of the matter is I’m responsible for many databases within my day job so I couldn’t be more excited!  Excited to share what I know in an area that isn’t directly related to virtualization – but even more so, excited to learn more about an area that I feel I could improve in.

So, if you have some time head on over to the thwack community and check out my first two posts; “It’s always the databases fault” and “Making performance metrics make sense to your business“.  Leave a comment and you may just win yourself a jambox!

thwack isn’t just about giving away a prize to hammer you with info on Solarwinds products -Honestly I’m very impressed with the the content over on thwack!  There are some great conversations going on over there dealing with everything from virtualization monitoring to cloud to mobile to, well, database analysis.  There’s a lot to learn and thwack is definitely a great community to join in order to not just get answers to your problems, but to genuinely expand your knowledge – Be sure to check it out!
