SolarWinds has opened a new datacentre in Europe focused on serving customers of IT infrastructure software as a service (SaaS) offering SolarWinds Observability.
Rohini Kasturi, chief product officer at SolarWinds, said the Observability offering targets demand for better visibility, with the new datacentre in Germany set to improve customers’ ability to manage “highly complex hybrid and multi-cloud IT environments”.
“Enterprises today need robust and secure solutions designed to provide the flexibility to scale rapidly and seamlessly no matter where they are on their digital transformation and cloud adoption journey or how complex their IT environment is,” he said.
The facility will expand SolarWinds Observability’s availability to customers using AWS, as part of its acceptance onto the AWS Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerate programme, said Kasturi.
SolarWinds Observability aims at single-pane-of-glass visibility into digital services, bolstered by machine learning and AIops capabilities to underpin availability and performance of IT networks, applications, and infrastructures.
The unified SaaS offering also supports Amazon CloudWatch for customers targeting cloud-native environments, according to SolarWinds.
This week sees SolarWinds promote its observability and IT management applications in its home city of Austin, Texas, with its annual North American ‘Transform’ Partner Summit running from 27 February to 3 March.
It wants to emphasise its “growing focus on channel”, according to a related announcement.
Chad Reese, president of Americas sales and global channel at SolarWinds, said a strong channel focus is more important than ever with modern, distributed, and multi-cloud network environments.
“The company is fuelling growth within the channel at this year’s summit,” Reese said. “We launched the ‘Transform’ partner programme [in 2022] to continue our support of our partners’ accelerating digital transformation efforts.”
The event, following the EMEA version of the summit 13-17 February, features the usual executive keynote presentations from SolarWinds executives, technical training, accreditation courses, and product strategy sessions, as well as celebrating partner achievements.
