AUSTIN, Texas, July 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced an expanded relationship with Tech Data Corporation, one of the world’s largest distributors of technology products, services, and solutions. Previously exclusive to the United States and Canada, the new distribution agreement now also includes all Central and South American and Caribbean countries.

They solve a broad range of IT management challenges from on-premises to the cloud—whether those challenges are related to managing networks, servers, applications, storage, virtualization, databases, the cloud, or a combination of these elements.

“We’re thrilled to expand our distribution relationship with Tech Data Corporation into the Central and South American and Caribbean countries,” said Chris Benwell, senior vice president, sales, SolarWinds. “While we’re committed to our direct sales model, our relationship with Tech Data Corporation and other key distribution partners demonstrates our parallel commitment to the channel sales model so we can best serve the needs of our customers no matter what their situation may be.

Tech Data® Corporation is authorized to distribute the complete portfolio of SolarWinds products, many of which integrate as modules into the SolarWinds Orion Platform, which enables unified monitoring and management of cloud, on-premises, and hybrid IT services. This includes SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM), which provides deep visibility into the performance of business-critical applications and the infrastructure that supports them on-premises and in the cloud; SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM), which provides comprehensive network performance monitoring with the NetPathfeature for critical path visualization on-premises and in the cloud; and SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA), which features unique Multi-Dimensional Performance Analysis across on-premises and cloud database environments.

“As the IT landscape rapidly evolves and becomes more complex, the need to monitor, analyze, and manage networks and related applications has remained constant and is crucial to avoid threats and performance problems, as well as maintain business productivity,” said Deena Piquion, vice president of sales and marketing, Latin America Export, Tech Data. “By expanding our relationship with SolarWinds, our partners can help their customers maintain better visibility into their complex network infrastructure regardless of the size of the company or project.
