By David Frost

SYDNEY - May 14, 2010 - SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software to more than 93,000 customers worldwide, has announced the availability of the latest release of its enterprise network management solution - SolarWinds Orion® Network Performance Monitor (NPM).


SolarWinds' flagship product for network management and monitoring delivers powerful, easy-to-use features designed to support the real-world challenges IT teams face, at an affordable price.

New architectures and technologies are forcing IT managers to deal with a far more dynamic IT environment than ever before. The complexity of virtualized, multi-vendor data centre environments, combined with the need to work across IT departments and with composite applications, will continue to drive the desire for easy to use, integrated IT management for companies of all sizes. Designed with feedback from SolarWinds' user-community of 40,000-plus IT managers, Orion NPM v10 is designed to manage the rapid changes in dynamic environments and allow IT professionals to simply, and visually, manage networks of all sizes.

'Virtualisation has introduced benefits along with new challenges for IT teams. As new architectures are forcing IT managers to deal with the interdependencies of physical and virtual across servers, storage and the network, we recognise a need for new visibility to manage these dynamic changes as they happen, not from a single snapshot, ' said Sanjay Castelino, vice president, product management and product marketing. ' With Orion NPM's new and updated features, IT professionals are empowered to gain a comprehensive outlook into the environment's availability and performance.'

SolarWinds' flagship Orion family of IT management solutions offers IT professionals a comprehensive and easy-to-understand view of their network and applications' performance from a single pane of glass. Starting with Orion NPM as the foundation, IT professionals can add additional Orion modules as needed to build an IT management system that fits most enterprises' evolving needs - from configuration, to application performance, to network traffic performance.
