IT management software vendor SolarWinds has announced the release of new troubleshooting and patch management tools.
“Over the past year, we’ve extended our reach into the server and app management market by leveraging our unique and disruptive business model to sell easy to use, powerful, and affordable products directly to system administrators,” says Kevin Thompson, president and CEO of SolarWinds. “Our goal in this market is to provide sysadmins with the tools they need to get their jobs done faster and easier, at a price they can afford.”
The company acquired certain assets of DameWare Development LLC in December and followed that acquisition with that of EminentWare, a Texas-based four-year old provider of patch management tools focused on Microsoft Windows server and workstations.
The tools from these two companies will now join SolarWinds Application Performance Monitor and SolarWinds Synthetic End User Monitor to add to the vendor’s portfolio of products.
“While there are many existing products in the systems management market, they have been aimed at driving a C-suite vision and suffered from weak investment, resulting in products that are underpowered, overpriced, unnecessarily hard to use, or all of these at the same time,” says Thompson. “By contrast, the goal of every SolarWinds systems management product is to meet the day-to-day needs of the IT professional and offer a unique combination of power, usability, and enterprise scalability, all at an affordable price.”
SolarWinds’ systems management portfolio includes DameWare NT Utilities and Mini Remote Control, as well as SolarWinds Patch Manager, Server & Application Monitor, and Synthetic End User Monitor.
SolarWinds is distributed in New Zealand through Ingram Micro and M.Tech (out of Australia).
