Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The more valuable feature of this solution is the Exchange feature.""I'd rate technical support at eight out of ten. They are helpful and fast.""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.""This product can monitor application environments no matter where they reside and provides capabilities for deep insight into infrastructure.""The solution is great for monitoring. If something is going wrong, we can immediately find the root cause.""The most valuable feature is the Access Rights Manager.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring."

"I'm not so familiar with the tool but I like the interaction of the console to the picture. Patching is the primary model I have been focusing on for the last couple of weeks. So I have created a proof of concept environment and have been checking the available features.""The security features are very valuable.""For incident response tasks, all these tasks can get done in minutes with minimal disruption to the end-user."

Cons
"They should incorporate more artificial intelligence. There should also be more predictive features.""Some custom applications cannot be monitored, and a lot more applications need to be included.""It would be helpful if the solution could integrate more with the security compliances, like this IDSS, etc.""When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed.""This product has no real downside unless they fail to continue development of its capabilities.""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.""Support for the IBM Mainframe is needed.""I would like to see support for non-Windows or non-Microsoft domains, especially Apache and other non-Windows servers."

"Most of the time, agent-relative issues have to be more equipped with self-healing features. At times, the agent is there, but for some reason, it doesn't report a status. It gives certain problems that are obviously agent-based.""The solution lacks mobility.""The solution can give a lot of false positives."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""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.""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.""I like the pricing for this SolarWinds product.""Price can always be lower. It is neither on the expensive side nor on the cheap side. We have worked with them for a lot of years, so we get a discount due to the size of the installation."
