Texas-based IT company to open operations to Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah Gov. Gary Herbert's economic developers are announcing that an information technology company will open a western regional office in Salt Lake City.

SolarWinds Inc. of Austin, Texas, is taking up Utah's offer of tax incentives tied to the number of jobs it creates.

The company says it employs more than 900 people worldwide and could add more than 1,000 in Utah over two decades.

SolarWinds makes a broad range of software products for large and small companies, notably for network monitoring and cloud computing.
