Calling all THWACK MVPs and SolarWinds Technology Partner MVPs.  We have some wishes to answer.  You can now get your own perpetual license provisioned for any SolarWinds product!  Below is the process for obtaining a NFR (not for resale) license of SolarWinds product(s).

 

THWACK MVPs

  1. MVPs should send a note to danielle.higgins@solarwinds.com with which product(s) you would like licenses for.
  2. Perpetual license will be provisioned for the current product version.
  3. You may get a quote for maintenance (it may look like a bill) but it should be disregarded.  This should not happen, but can happen if their NFR license is not coded properly (by SolarWinds) when provisioned.
  4. If you would like to upgrade to a later version, you will need to repeat step 1.

 

SolarWinds Technology Partner MVPs (Cisco, Microsoft, VMware, etc.)

  1. Complete this form (Note: physically signed and scanned copy needed) and send as an attachment to gerardo.dada@solarwinds.com along with which product(s) you would like NFR licenses for.
  2. Perpetual NFR license will be provisioned for the current product version.
  3. You may get a quote for maintenance (it may look like a bill) but it should be disregarded.  This should not happen, but can happen if their NFR license is not coded properly (by SolarWinds) when provisioned.
  4. If you would like to upgrade to a later version, you will need to repeat step 1.
