Plixer Scrutinizer Implementation Team

AdrianGrant
Network Manager at IOOF Holdings
I did it all myself. We didn't need a great deal of time with Plixer, once we got it up and running. I worked with someone there for about three to four hours who gave me some more information about how to use the appliances properly. Because she was very good at what she does, I was able to get that information and deploy it immediately. It came down to working with the individual vendors' products: Palo Alto firewalls, Cisco Nexus data center switches, Arrista sFlow. I had it deployed on Cisco ISR 2s, ISR 3s, and ISRs. I had it running on the Cisco 9300 and 3850 series switches, as well. View full review »

I was the one who set it up. I came in as the expert. I talked to Jamie and Jack directly at Plixer because I already knew them from other jobs. I use them because, as a technical person, I suck at doing reports. So, anytime a boss will ask me for some type of oddball historical reporting on a site, I still go right back to them, and go, "Okay, guys, show me again how this works," because they do it maybe once a year, and we don't have a reseller who does this. It was probably up and running inside of four hours. My implementation strategy was just to gain visibility. It was to set up the company's product, send everything at it, and show my employers what they can see. It was to show them a blind spot. View full review »

Anytime a deployment happens, because it's Linux, we require the help of Plixer. We are very happy to work with Plixer. They are very efficient and know what they are doing. With one simple call, they can help us update the system. The initial deployment was done by Plixer, so it took one hour to install it. We provided the OVA to deploy it, then Plixer configured it. The new implementation was one hour and very fast. View full review »

In our situation with 25 exporters, it might take a half a week to do the implementation of the server. It's usually performed by Plixer, or with the help of Plixer and the hotline. First of all, I would use the test license to do a proof of concept to do the implementation. Then, I would test one or two devices, gathering some reports. I would also create an implementation plan. View full review »

It was done by the vendor. Our experience with them was fantastic. They are some of the most knowledgeable people. I would put their knowledge — the people that they have and how long I've worked with them, how long they retain them, and how good they are, and how much they all know — I would put them on par with the best I've worked with in my 25 years in IT.

We deployed it. Plixer was there with technical support from the sFlow perspective. We didn't need them for the actual deployment. View full review »
