“It’s all about the performance, protection and partnerships MSPs need to power their clients – and their business – forward. It’s the next step in our exploration of a potential spinoff, which is anticipated to occur in the second quarter,” said Pagliuca.
The N-able name might sound familiar. Nearly eight years ago, SolarWinds acquired N-able, maker of the N-central software platform, for $120 million. No small deal, it was actually one of the first major remote monitoring and management (RMM) software acquisitions in the MSP industry.
Now, SolarWinds MSP will essentially resurrect the N-able name as part of the potential spinoff from SolarWinds.

Additionally, the company submitted a Form 10 to the SEC last month, regarding the potential spinoff. The impact of separating from SolarWinds primarily concerns operations.
Today, SolarWinds MSP operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of its parent, SolarWinds Corporation.
SolarWinds MSP has a separate and distinct executive leadership team.
The company has independent technical support, partner success and sales teams that provide resources and best practices specifically designed to help MSP partners protect and serve their customers.
SolarWinds MSP’s product and R&D teams have their own leadership, standalone road maps, and separate repositories and build environments.
