SolarWinds Puts Down Roots and Expands Workforce in Boulder, Colorado

Global IT Management Software Provider's Operation in Boulder, Colorado, Has Moved to a New Location as Part of Its Continued Commitment to the Database Management Market and Support for Recruitment

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced that its operation in Boulder, Colorado, has moved from the headquarters of Confio Software, which was acquired by SolarWinds in 2013, to a new office to support the growth of its comprehensive database management software business and to accommodate enhanced recruiting efforts in the Boulder area.

The new office will become home to over 60 employees that are currently located in Boulder and will continue to focus on the database management market as it expands. The team in Boulder was included in The Denver Post's Top Workplaces in 2013, partners with local non-profit There with Care, and is a member of the Boulder & Denver Software Club.

"Our investment in our team in Boulder is a reflection of our continued commitment to our growing database management business as well as our appreciation for the talent in the area," said Kevin Thompson, president and CEO, SolarWinds. "SolarWinds employees worldwide demonstrate the dedication, creativity and collaboration we know is necessary to the success of our business and this new office will encourage those qualities as we continue to build a strong organization."

SolarWinds acquired Confio, one of the fastest-growing database performance solution companies, in October 2013 and has since added their software into the SolarWinds family. SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer, formerly Confio® Ignite, monitors SQL Server®, Oracle®, Sybase® and DB2® on both physical and VMware® servers and identifies performance problems while isolating the root cause.

SolarWinds was established in 1999 and is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. The company employs more than 1,400 people worldwide and is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with a number of additional North American and international offices, including Lehi, Utah; Singapore; Chennai, India; Cork, Ireland; Sydney, Australia; and Brno, Czech Republic, among others. Most recently, the company established a new IT Shared Services location in Manila, Philippines, specifically Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, to allow SolarWinds to continue to expand and enhance its global operations. Since listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 2009, the company has consistently achieved annual revenue growth rates exceeding 20 percent while maintaining strong profitability.

SolarWinds' new office is located at 5665 Flatiron Parkway, Suite 100, Boulder, CO, 80301.
