Cisco Data Center Network Manager Review

A great monitoring system and informative user interface are great features

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for monitoring and protecting companies from malware attacks as well as providing secure VPN. I'm an IT solution consultant. 

What is most valuable?

The monitoring system in this product is valuable. It provides a clear indication of what's going on in the network and the server processing, power, etc. User interface is also very good, very informative. 

What needs improvement?

It's a relatively expensive product for some clients so perhaps improvement could be made in that area. In terms of product improvement, I don't have any recommendations. I'm happy with the product as is. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been providing service on this solution and using it for over 10 years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable product, I don't intend to replace it in the near future.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've used the technical support many times in the past. They are very helpful. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've used HP in the past, but it's for enterprise companies so not comparable to Network Manager.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward - I use the help of an integrator for this. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I believe cost for the product is below 5,000K.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Network Manager for small and medium scale companies. When it comes to larger scale companies, you would need to look at HP. 

I would rate this product a nine out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud
