With Pingdom® Server Monitor, formerly Scout Server Monitoring, SolarWinds enhances its already deep server monitoring capabilities with out-of-the-box simple, yet rich SaaS-based server monitoring developed by DevOps professionals for DevOps professionals.


In addition to all the great features Scout customers have come to rely on, they will now also benefit from even deeper investment in the product, along with streamlined access to the complete SolarWinds® portfolio of SaaS-based tools to better manage, optimize, and troubleshoot the full stack at every layer, from the infrastructure and application layers through the end-user experience.

“With it, developers and DevOps practitioners have access to an affordable, SaaS-based server monitoring solution. We look forward to investing in it and we welcome Andre Lewis to the SolarWinds team to help in those efforts.”

Pingdom Server Monitor joins Pingdom website uptime and performance monitoring products, as well as Librato®, Papertrail™, and TraceView™ in the company’s SaaS portfolio of products for monitoring cloud-native applications, servers, and other infrastructure to address the complex performance and reliability challenges inherent in today’s cloud environments.

“The era of cloud and digitalization is driving exponential application growth and increased complexity,” Pfister added.


“It’s clear that cloud-native developers and DevOps teams need faster troubleshooting that enables them to more easily solve problems and improve performance across the full stack, including servers.”

“The goal of our SaaS portfolio, and the market-leading products within it, is to provide just that, and to do so at an affordable price.”
