Pros
This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues.We use it extensively for performance tuning testing, monitoring, and configuration.SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident NotificationsThe most valuable feature is high availability.The 13cR2 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud (off-site, hybrid and on-premise) services providing a seamless way to see all of your resources regardless of where they are deployed.I have found the singular GUI feature very helpful. Fewer DBA resources can be allocated with Toad licenses.Oracle Enterprise Manager has eased the responsibilities among our DBAs. We can now assign individual tasks to separate DBAs.With ASH Analytics, ADDM, Real-Time SQL Monitoring, SQL Tuning Advisor, we can measure SLAs, detect performance hotspots, perform deep diagnostics into specific tiers, tune applications, and remediate.

The solution is great for monitoring. If something is going wrong, we can immediately find the root cause.This product can monitor application environments no matter where they reside and provides capabilities for deep insight into infrastructure.Solarwinds has an open database that allows you to do serious integrations. It doesn't matter which service desk you have, you can implement and integrate it with SolarWinds.I'd rate technical support at eight out of ten. They are helpful and fast.The more valuable feature of this solution is the Exchange feature.The solution's most valuable features are PerfStack, AppStack and AppInsight.One of the most valuable features are the reports. They're pretty good. Also, the ease of installation and customization for the client is another feature that we value. SolarWinds has a lot of features but these are the ones I like the most. We also like that the KPIs have the ability to be preset.There are many valuable features, including the network configuration manager, and the network performance manager.

Cons
The product is pretty comprehensive, but quite resource hungry. This might be due to the majority of the application seemingly being written in Java.Better mobile access would be useful.Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.RMAN tools need improvement.Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.They should improve the hover text context. This would provide assistance whenever a task is attempted by a DBA.

The templates could use improvement. Currently, they are quite complex. They should have drag-and-drop functionality instead. It would make it easier to use.This product has no real downside unless they fail to continue development of its capabilities.When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed.It would be helpful if the solution could integrate more with the security compliances, like this IDSS, etc.Some custom applications cannot be monitored, and a lot more applications need to be included.The solution should implement something like a network configuration manager, or some baseline for server configuration. Many of my customers need a recommendation for server configuration. Implementing that as a feature would be perfect for them.They should incorporate more artificial intelligence. There should also be more predictive features.The setup was complex. We had local support to assist us.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Evaluate your requirements carefully. Elaborate DR and HA setup of OEM can become expensive.Be careful to only enable the packs for which you have a license as this is an issue we see time and again.There are a few bugs with the software which require opening SRs with Oracle Support which contribute to the day-to-day cost. Perhaps 8 hours per month is spent dealing with support, just as a rough guess.The pricing is very high.Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts.The basic functions are free. You only pay license fees for advanced features.

Pricing is inexpensive, starting at 2440 euros. For that, you get the ability to monitor a couple of nodes and one year of maintenance and support.The licenses start from USD 3000.00 and go up to USD 20,000.00 for the year. It's a perpetual license. Nothing is free in SolarWinds, anything that you need is an additional cost.The product might cost you $30,000 USD to buy, but scaling this solution requires the purchase of additional polling engines at $20,000 USD each.

Overview

As an IT operations professional, your job is more critical than ever because cloud operations are now a fact of life. For example, you must address the concerns of corporate compliance auditors one minute, and the next minute, deal with end users who signed up for cloud services without consulting you first. So, what are you to do?

Not to worry! Oracle provides a single solution for managing both situations. Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a “single pane of glass” that allows you to manage on-premises and cloud-based IT using the same familiar interface you know and use on-premises every day.
