We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
We could literally swap out a piece of hardware, slide one back into the chassis, and immediately - about three reboots later - it was identical. We didn't have to worry about configuring it, we didn't have to spend any time getting anything into place. It came back and it healed the environment almost immediately.Comprehensive dashboard, ease of use are key features.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the alerts.We had some interfaces where the SFP Ports were having some problems after a while. We found which of the SFP Ports was having the error and changed it, so the bandwidth become okay.It is very extensible with 'SWQL' and APIs to where we are beginning to integrate it with network automation.This has helped us to monitor the availability of our routers, switches, servers, and virtual environments.The set up was very easy. We didn't have any problems with the setup. The deployment took less than an hour.We can proactively fix historical issues, so we won't face those problems in future.You can monitor performance counters effortlessly.One of the best features is the reports feature.

Cons
Sometimes the interface can be a little confusing, sometimes the error messages can be very cryptic, as far as what's actually going on.The main problem that we run into, as far as stability goes, is when something loses its profile. Sometimes it requires jumping through a number of "hoops" to really get it back.I would like to see them expand into other cloud platforms, non-HPE platforms.

It is difficult for stakeholders to translate technical requirements, which results in difficulties selecting a platform or implementing a solution.We are looking to change away from this solution because of the documentation and the solution doesn't have enough integration in our country. The documentation is too weak.This solution would benefit from expanding on the capabilities within the API.Application Performance Monitoring should be included in this solution.The aesthetic widgets should be dynamic widgets, so the customization can be even more customizable.It is not that stable. As a Windows software, I have seen issues with SolarWinds. The performance is slow.It would be nice if SolarWinds could have a polling engine on the site that would collect the reporting and then manage everything itself.Consolidation of platforms would provide a smoother experience.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It is expensive.Some solutions are open source and free.We have a perpetual license for this solution, and my impression is that this solution is cheap.The pricing is very expensive for SolarWinds. That's a huge disadvantage for it.The pricing needs to be improved. It is too high. One full engine costs around $10 000, which is why we don't have high availability right now.You have to license it per year, for the support. You don't really need to have support once you've already set it up. Once you install SolarWinds, you can skip on the licensing. It will still work.
