Pingdom is joining SolarWinds


Pingdom is moving forward quickly. We can’t wait to show you all the ideas we have for taking monitoring to the next level. This means not only continuing to scale the service, but also expanding our product portfolio. Add to that a host of new features and we’ve got a lot of work to do. Because of all of this, we need to grow thoughtfully, with great people who share our vision and values.

Enter SolarWinds, an Austin-based IT-management and monitoring software company with over 150,000 customers worldwide. They are a great company and a really talented group of people; Forbes named them as one of the top 10 fastest growing tech companies. We’ve decided to join forces with SolarWinds to further support our growth. Pingdom is not going away – we remain committed to this brand and our product offering. The roadmap we have is in place, we’re just adding horsepower to this machinery.

“Our vision for the future is really exciting. During the past two years we have worked hard to lay a good foundation, and now we believe we are ready to take  our business and products to a new level. Together with SolarWinds, we want to be the standard platform for web monitoring and performance management” says Sam Nurmi, CEO and founder, Pingdom.

“SolarWinds is a great fit for us. They are incredibly knowledgeable and have a deep expertise and recognition in the monitoring industry. We have a shared vision that monitoring your websites, servers, and infrastructure should be easy.”

So hold onto to something, because this is just getting started. And thanks again for joining us on the journey to make the web faster and more reliable. We’re really excited for what’s ahead.

  1. So what will be the difference between Pingdom and SolarWinds (whom I just left and closed down my account, because Ill rather go with you, than with them, due to several causes…
    What will be the difference from a user point of view?

  2. Congratulations , But I’ve seen this scenario many times, The big names buy big features and unfortunately they don’t care about the culture of the product and brand vanishes and the company culture either….

    Wish it won’t happen to great Pingdom, but I’m sorry to say I’m not optimistic…….
