The goal of this project was to leverage some of the geo data that we were collecting at Solarwinds in order to provide customers with a cool way to see the status of their data centers around the world.
This interactive screen provided network admins with the ability to quickly see which data centers were experiencing issues. It is primarily meant to be displayed on a big screen in a NOC (Network Operations Center).
UX Research / User Testing
Customers with large numbers of data centers were chosen for usability testing. Persona scenarios were setup before hand and presented to users and their behavior was recorded. The results revealed several trends in behavior and this was used to further refine the designs.
