SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable hybrid IT infrastructure management software, today announced it will introduce Pingdom service as its newest add-on to Heroku Elements Marketplace at Dreamforce in San Francisco September 15-18.

Dreamforce is expected to bring together 150,000 professionals who work with Salesforce, "the world's largest cloud ecosystem," and will feature a Developer Zone where more than 20,000 developers will participate in technical learning and hands-on app-building sessions.

Visit SolarWinds and Heroku in the Developer Zone SolarWinds is one of six companies that will partner with Salesforce's cloud application platform, Heroku, within the Developer Zone. There, SolarWinds will showcase Pingdom, Librato and Papertrail, its cloud monitoring solutions now available in Heroku's Elements Marketplace of verified tools that provide extra services to support the platform as a service (PaaS) offering.

"SolarWinds already features two of the most popular solutions for Heroku developers with Librato and Papertrail, and now Pingdom brings web performance monitoring to complete the picture," said Peter Cho, Head of Heroku's Ecosystem Program.
