EOC 2.2 offers new features and improvements compared to previous releases of EOC.

Support for Microsoft Azure Database

EOC 2.2 adds support for the Microsoft Azure Database to align with system requirements for other Orion Platform 2019.2 products. You can now use the Azure SQL Database to host your Orion SQL database.

Other improvements

  • EOC 2.2 supports 100 attached SolarWinds remote sites with up to 1 million elements - such as nodes, volumes, interfaces, applications, alerts, and events - from all attached SolarWinds Sites.
  • Extensive enhancements to the web performance have drastically increased the speed of data collection and representation in EOC 2.2.

New customer installation

Return to top

For information about installing Enterprise Operations Console, see the SolarWinds Orion Installer. After installation, review the EOC Getting Started Guide to begin using EOC.

Before you upgrade!

As of the release of EOC 2.0, the Enterprise Operations Console has been rebuilt to run on the Orion Platform. If you are running EOC 2.0, you can upgrade to EOC 2.2 using the same server.

Note: The organization of custom tiles in EOC 2.0 is not preserved when upgrading to 2.2.

Due to this rebuild, users of versions prior to EOC 2.0 must install EOC to 2.2 on a separate server. To begin using the new features, simply install EOC 2.2 on a different server from your current EOC edition.

How to upgrade

If you are upgrading from EOC 2.0 or later:

  1. Use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to upgrade one or more Orion Platform products simultaneously.
  2. If your scalability engines (additional polling engines, additional web servers, and high availability servers) are able to communicate with the main server, use the centralized upgrade feature to upgrade the rest of your Orion deployment in parallel.

    For details, see Install or upgrade Orion Platform products.

If you are upgrading from EOC 1.6 or earlier: use the legacy product upgrade guide to plan and then implement an upgrade to the current version of EOC.
