Why a SolarWinds training?

The SolarWinds Orion monitoring software can be installed quickly and a basic setup is easily set up. The sheer number of possibilities and options can however be overwhelming, leaving the full potential of this monitoring software largely untapped. By following one of our SolarWinds training courses, you will be introduced to the many options and features in a practical way.

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor – the basis

The NPM-module or the SAM-module* form the basis of the SolarWinds training courses. By adding an extra SolarWinds Orion module, the training can be expanded and/or adapted as desired.

What others say

This is what your peers think of our SolarWinds Orion training courses:

I always thought SCOM was the best solution. Now I see that SolarWinds Orion can do much more.

At first, we only had a list of alerts. Now we are creating more and more informational dashboards.

Edwin

Edwin

Netwerk Engineer

The system was set up by someone else and I used maybe 10% of what SolarWinds Orion can do.

Now I know what is really possible and how I can easily configure it.

Johan

Johan

Technical Support Engineer

Application Dependency Mapping was discussed during the 'Noteworthy features' section. I had no idea it existed and how easy it is to activate.

The features discussed during this SolarWinds training give me so much more insight.

Vincent

Vincent

Senior Beheer ICT Netwerken

We thought that nested maps were very limited in functionality. During the SolarWinds training we learned that nested maps are easy to convert to nested dashboards with all the functionality we wanted. This makes the maps part of the navigation.

Raul

Raul

IT Netwerkbeheerder

The SolarWinds feature Quality of Experience provides direct insight into performance issues. Is the issue caused by the network or by the application?

With the help of this QoE feature, it is demonstrated in one go and the cause can be quickly identified and solved.

Marco

Marco

ICT Manager

These guys know more about SolarWinds than I do. And I was always the specialist here.

Steven

Steven

Director Global Infrastructure Services

I thought I knew what was possible with SolarWinds Orion.

Now I realise that I had no idea.

Jochem

Jochem

Network System Engineer

The trainer adapted the training ad hoc in response to our specific questions.

Thanks to this SolarWinds training, we can perform our work much better.

Frequently asked questions

What is SolarWinds Orion?

SolarWinds Orion is a monitoring system for heterogeneous ICT environments that can monitor ICT systems brand-independently.

Due to the modular design of SolarWinds Orion, it can monitor your complete ICT infrastructure. Think of the network, servers, applications, databases, storage, security and even application and network performance.

The presentation of the collected data is completely flexible and can be individually arranged in the dashboards as desired.

The SolarWinds API is so extensive that you can read all information automatically and perform actions. SolarWinds Orion can therefore be fully integrated with, for example, CMDB and provisioning systems.

SolarWinds Orion is the definition of complete outside-the-box monitoring.

How can I get more information about SolarWinds Orion modules?

Please contact our specialized SolarWinds employees for:

  • Purchase and renewals of the software
  • Independent advice (software, installation and implementation)
  • Choice in training courses
  • Support and custom scripting
  • Request demo of trials
  • More information about the modules
Which modules are covered during the SolarWinds Orion training?

Our SolarWinds Orion courses usually have the Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) or Server & Application Monitoring (SAM) module as a basis. This depends on your primary network monitoring objective.
If desired, other SolarWinds modules can be included in the training

In which languages are the SolarWinds courses given?

The training courses at Procyon Networks are given in Dutch or English. Please let us know your preference.

SolarWinds has its own online virtual classrooms. Why should I take a training at Procyon Networks?

Feedback from people who first followed the virtual classrooms shows that after our SolarWinds training they have a better overview, more in-depth knowledge and a better sense of context. Concepts of what is possible in SolarWinds fit in much better in relation to each other.

In addition, our SolarWinds training courses are more interactive and our training courses are more tailor-made, even during the training.

What is the SolarWinds SCP exam?

SCP stands for SolarWinds Certified Professional. This exam is administered by SolarWinds.

I want to take the SolarWinds SCP exam. How can Procyon Networks help me prepare for this?

Procyon Networks can certainly help you with your preparation for the SolarWinds SCP exam*. We have developed the SolarWinds Master training especially for this.

*SCP stands SolarWinds Certified Professional

Does Procyon Networks also offer online SolarWinds training courses?

Because of the depth, intensity and interactive nature of our training courses, between teacher and participants and also between participants themselves, we provide our SolarWinds training courses exclusively in class.

Are there SolarWinds Orion training courses scheduled for which I can register?

Our training courses are tailor-made for customers with a minimum of three participants (in-company). We do not provide SolarWinds training courses with an open registration.
