The company additionally will celebrate its partners’ achievements during an exclusive SolarWinds Partner Awards Ceremony.

“We launched the Transform Partner Program to continue our support of our partners' accelerating digital transformation efforts,” said Chad Reese, president of Americas sales and global channel at SolarWinds. “This is more important than ever with the modern, distributed, and multi-cloud network environments the channel is experiencing today. We’re excited to share more on our strategic approach and how the company is fueling growth within the channel at this year’s summit.”
