Mike Thompson, Director of Business Strategy for Virtualization and Storage at SolarWinds, has joined the Vendor Forum.

SolarWinds provides powerful and affordable IT management software to more than 93,000 customers worldwide - from Fortune 500 enterprises to small businesses.

The company believes that the IT pros who use their products everyday should be excited about them. That's why they put their users first in everything they do, and strive to deliver powerful functionality while making the users' jobs easier. They call it "user-centric software," and they believe that it's changing expectations for the enterprise software experience.

SolarWinds products are downloadable, easy to use and maintain, and provide the power, scale, and flexibility needed to address users’ management priorities. The SolarWinds online user community, thwack, is a gathering place where tens of thousands of IT pros solve problems, share technology, and participate in product development for all SolarWinds products.

Mike Thompson has a background in virtualization, cloud management, and systems management strategy and product management.
