When I try to create a custom report, the solution just commits old server data.The interface of solar winds could be improved.We want to be able to store it in a data warehouse format and integrate it with Google single sign-on.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
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.
