SolarWinds Announces Managed Service Provider-Friendly IT Management Solutions

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the expansion of their comprehensive IT management solutions to the Managed Server Provider (MSP) community. SolarWinds suite of IT management software, already deployed by hundreds of MSPs globally, enables the delivery of services remotely across multiple customers, networks, and sites from a single console.

"For years, our members have been singing the praises of SolarWinds as a MSP-friendly software provider," said Charles Weaver, co-founder and president of the MSP Alliance. "That said, SolarWinds has been largely flying under the radar; it's just a matter of time before SolarWinds becomes a household name in the global managed services community."

When MSPs partner with SolarWinds, they get the following benefits:

  • A full suite of products to remotely manage MSP customers' network, applications, virtualization and storage infrastructure
  • Flexibility to deploy standalone or multiple servers across a distributed network
  • Out-of-the-box and customizable dashboards and reports to easily provide detailed performance and capacity reports to end-customers
  • Ability to analyze end customers' user experience as it is impacted by network traffic or application performance
  • Centralized alert notification and management with the Enterprise Operations Console that allows all data to be rolled up to a centralized NOC
  • Scale the capabilities of your SolarWinds products as your customers' networks expand and their management needs change
  • MSP branding opportunities so you can keep your name visible to your customers

"As a MSP, we monitor multiple IT services for almost 150 financial institutions," said Evan Marks, Infrastructure Manager at COCC, Inc. "SolarWinds enables us to be more responsive to our clients by proactively monitoring critical infrastructure and applications, allowing us to quickly identify and isolate issues facing one or more institutions and resolve them quickly. We have been so impressed with the overall value of the product and its ease of use that we are deploying it to our clients as a free enhancement to our managed WAN service. Clients can now access the Orion portal to view real time information about their routers and circuits and to access critical alerts about these services."

MSPs need flexible deployment options to ensure optimal management of their customers' IT environments. SolarWinds solutions allow MSPs to deploy standalone servers, or with multiple instances across a distributed network; the products are easily scalable, ensuring there is no limit to the number of customers MSPs can monitor and manage.

"SolarWinds is a great option for MSPs -- with a low on-boarding cost for new customers, we're one of the most affordable solutions in the marketplace," said Suku Krishnaraj, SVP Product Strategy. "MSPs feel comfortable working with us, knowing that our products are trusted by 100,000 customers worldwide."
