ScienceLogic Review

It is very powerful and customizable, and their support infrastructure is top notch.

What is most valuable?

The dashboards are probably the best selling point. API functionality, customization features, and flexibility of the tool in general, are the best features.

How has it helped my organization?

We lacked the power or features that the EM7 dashboards provide, and have won more than one account based on that alone. Same scenario for AWS support.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an expansion of the API.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with ScienceLogic and EM7 for approximately one and a half years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

The ScienceLogic Deployment Team took care of our installation and configuration, and walked us through some of the basics we needed to get off the ground. Their team is knowledgeably and friendly, and it was incredibly helpful that they provided this service for us.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

My Redundant/DR deployment has been running, issue free, for one and a half years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Shouldn't encounter any issues - when we are ready, or it is necessary, a global manager function will help us manage multiple deployments from a single interface.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

10 out of 10

Technical Support:

10 out of 10

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

We use multiple solutions, however this is by far the most customizable and feature rich solution in our arsenal.

How was the initial setup?

The HA or DR deployments introduce some minor complexities, however the deployment team stands ready to assist with any issues that are encountered, or can deploy with you onsite.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team who I would rate a 10 out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we also looked at Nagios, SolarWinds, Zabbix, and Nimsoft.

What other advice do I have?

It's packed with features and out-of-the-box integrations, there is quite a bit going on in this tool, so the learning curve can be a bit steeper than other tools in this category, but very powerful and customizable, and their support infrastructure is top notch.

Talk to Sales and Technical Support - ask a lot of questions. They will get you set on the right course.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
