SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager Review

Good scalability, stability and reliability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to check the configuration for Cisco, Juniper or L3 devices in our network.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features the solution offers are compliance, reliability, and information about reliability.

What needs improvement?

The solution could offer a better compliance report. GDPR has many security standards. If a company is working with an international client, it must be compliant with any standards. We work with a bank, financial companies, and an insurance company. They need to be compliant and the core customer compliance is our main challenge.

The interface of solar winds could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is good. We haven't faced any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is good. We haven't had any problems with scaling.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is okay. We've contacted them many times and they've been fine.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy. If it is already done with existing network infrastructure, deployment takes only two to three hours.

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

With a minimal bundle, we pay about $3000 a year in licensing costs. If you have multiple devices in your network, you must buy the bundle, which is 100% identical for your infrastructure. If you have 15 devices, you need 15 licenses, for example. That's one bundle. You don't pay for anything over and above that.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. We're a SolarWinds distributor.

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
