SolarWinds has acquired VividCortex, a maker of database performance management software for cloud-native environments.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
In combination with its Database Performance Analyzer offering, SolarWinds says, the VividCortex platform will help businesses transitioning to hybrid IT more effectively administer both onsite and offsite databases, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Amazon Aurora, MongoDB, and Redis.
“For 20 years, SolarWinds has been committed to making IT look easy by arming technology pros with the powerful tools they need to solve today’s IT management challenges. We do this by responding to well-understood, everyday problems based on input and feedback from our customers and the technology professionals we serve,” said SolarWinds CEO Kevin Thompson in a media statement. “The ubiquity of applications has made the database core to any IT professional's job and something they interact with every day to serve the businesses they help grow and succeed. This new offering, combined with our leading database management products for Microsoft SQL and Oracle, extends our coverage for monitoring these critical assets.”
VivivCortex software will become part of the SolarWinds IT operations management portfolio by the end of the year.
“By adding VividCortex to the SolarWinds portfolio of products, we can now offer teams the ability to go deep on app traces, infrastructure monitoring, metrics, both traditional and cloud-native database performance, digital experience monitoring, logs, and network monitoring,” said Thompson in additional prepared remarks. “The powerful database management solution VividCortex provides offers us another compelling product, with demonstrated ROI, to enhance our ability to serve IT professionals in organizations of all sizes while meaningfully expanding our total addressable markets.”
A SaaS-based solution, the VividCortex platform uses locally-deployed agents to collect information about resource consumption, service interruptions, database health, and other topics. It then displays those metrics in a graphical dashboard.
“The VividCortex mission is to make every engineer awesome at databases,” said Baron Schwartz, founder and CTO of VividCortex, in a press statement. “We’re excited to join SolarWinds, expanding their ability to serve the entire spectrum of databases and related application performance management challenges in hybrid IT environments.”
In a further effort to support hybrid IT workloads, SolarWinds announced enhancements to its web performance management products in August.
