BigFix Scalability

Michelle McGough
BigFix Offering Manager at a tech services company
Scalability is a place where BigFix really shines. One of the environments I worked on had over 250K endpoints on a single server. Extreme scale is a very interesting space - the issues that come up are different than at an SMB. It isn't that scale breaks the solution, but the added load means that it is important to determine what is most important to the organization and tailor the solution to fit. Details that don't matter to an SMB do matter in extreme scale, while other things that matter to an SMB don't matter in extreme scale. View full review »

We manage about 75,000 systems, most of them in a single instance and we have not run into serious performance issues at that scale. I have some concerns around the root server and the number of relays checking into it. We may be running into some performance issues there, but they're not impacting the functionality at this time.

Scalability is amazing. We have over 10,000 systems and could easily add to that without a performance hit. We'd have to increase our relay structure to keep it manageable but I don't think we'd have any problems. View full review »

Technical Engineer at a individual & family service with 10,001+ employees
It's very scalable. We've had mergers that have come in and put a relay out there, and immediately get the information back for their clients. It's very scalable, we don't have to worry about putting too much burden on our other servers. View full review »

Scalability is awesome. For one, it supports around a quarter of a million endpoints, which is a lot. It's also very easy to stand up relays anywhere in the world. It's incredibly scalable. View full review »

I've worked with customers that have a couple thousand endpoints to a couple hundred thousand endpoints. I've also looked at other competing technologies out there, and it is definitely one of the leading tools on the marketplace in terms of the scalability performance. View full review »
