We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Auvik automatically updates network topology. Since it automatically updates the topology, we proactively know what is happening in a country or our branch offices. It also alerts us if there is a topology change, e.g., if it discovers anything new in that country. So, it has reduced the number of failures in our operations. We went from being reactive to proactive. So, we are no longer reacting to what is happening and others are doing. This has saved us about two to three hours a day. We used to spend two to three hours every morning checking the firewall and router logs for malicious behavior."
"Flexibility in the two view dashboard helps viewers and admins get the information they need about the fetwork in a flash."
"The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to reach most of our network devices and get the most from them."
"The most valuable feature is the network-related reporting."
"The most valuable feature is the monitoring alerts. The administrators are immediately notified and can do the required action immediately. This is the feature we value and use the most."
"It helps us a lot for monitoring our servers in one console, instead of going to individual servers."
"The solution offers very good integration capabilities."
"The application monitoring is the solution's most valuable feature."
"The solution is easy to deploy. It's also easy to manage and monitor the environment. Instead of being reactive, it's proactive."
"We have visibility on all our network devices, through this tool, which gives me immediate alerts or notifications when some devices fail."
"They need to improve the reporting system. They still don't have a proper reporting system in Auvik. They have built a dashboard in Power BI using APIs, but they should build some sort of report within Auvik itself. If Auvik fixes the reporting or comes up with a good reporting module, it will change the game."
"The two views into the system are very good but could be extended to further customization to fit the need of end users in a variety of roles."
"The initial setup is a bit complicated. It needs a technician who is very aware of the flow and how to officially set up the flow chart, etc."
"The dashboard has some limitations and should be more user-friendly."
"The storage level monitoring needs improvement. It needs storage level monitoring on the server itself. That feature is lacking right now."
"The licensing for this solution is not straightforward and should be improved."
"The pricing of the solution is high. They should work to adjust the pricing model to see if they can help reduce costs."
"The licensing model is confusing."
"The solution is a bit difficult to configure. There are quite a number of configurations and plugins that you must handle early in the process."
"The only thing I can say needs improvement is in how they present the data to the end users. End users are looking for a dashboard with an attractive view. The current dashboards we have are sufficient for our needs, but not attractive for the business users at the upper management levels."
"Compared to other products, Auvik's pricing is more feasible since you get all its features. You pay for licenses on a per network device basis. It monitors hypervisors, but does not bill for that. There are no additional costs, which is something that I like."
"As far as cost, it was around six hundred thousand rands ($40,500) for the year, for the renewals. That's the total cost for a four thousand node system including support and maintenance."
"The licensing costs depend on the number of devices and accounts that are being monitored by the solution."
"The initial cost is low and the add-ons are reasonable."
"The price is reasonable for the services and different products we have.Compared to others, it's reasonable."
