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

Pros
"This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.""This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.""The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.""People are very pleased with the implementation.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.""No issues with stability."

"The reporting of the solution is very good.""Technical support is always live and they're supportive."

More SolarWinds AppOptics Pros »

"If we deploy NSX it shows us how the workflow will flow in the organization, what the roadblocks are, and what we need to do to overcome those hurdles. When we run this product, it gives us reports which describe problems with physical switches. We work with the network team to get them all resolved.""It provides deep visibility into what is happening with traffic and helps us manage our network.""A lot of time is saved when you use this type of software solution for the network. We have moved systems into the new data center and the servers and systems are much faster because of the very low latency between virtual machines.""The solution helps reduce time to value, increase performance, provide deep visibility, and easily manage networks.""The initial was straightforward. You can have it up and running in one hour.""The gradual way the Network Insight shows you all the relevant information about your networks. It's pretty good. You can really dig deep deep inside and see where the problem is, where it comes from, what you have inside, how did you configure it. Also, it has alerts so you can have pretty much quite a big overview about your network. This is really something good.""We haven't had any complaints about the stability of the solution or heard of any issues. None of our clients have mentioned running into bugs or glitches. There haven't been crashes."

Cons
"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

"The implementation needs improvement. It needs to get modernized with the newer cloud scenario in both public and private deployment models.""AppOptics would benefit from having a much more centralized view."

More SolarWinds AppOptics Cons »

"If it had some kind of plugins with vSphere, more effective plugins with Horizon View or other VMWare products, if it had interconnectivity, I think it would be more effective than it is today.""vRNI needs more remediation where it hooks into NSX.""I want to be able to monitor a network flow that is approximately two weeks back, but I haven't found an easy way to do this.""The virtual appliance has rebooted.""The solution is very much viewer centric and it would be nice if it would transcend just the virtual infrastructure."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."

Information Not Available
"The solution has reduced the time that we spend on other products. For example, with NSX, we were able to quickly find things that we would normally spend days trying to figure out.""We have spent less time investigating network flows, so it is absolutely cost-effective.""It has brought more money into our company."
