Has been helpful during the pandemic because you can dial in from any location

What is our primary use case?

We use SolarWinds for everything. One of the main reasons we use it is for remote support. We have a desktop workstation added to multiple clients' sites. Whenever any problem happens, we just dial into the client machine via the remote support tool of the RMM. We then log into the client machine and resolve that particular issue. We also use the antivirus that is provided along with the RMM setup. The antivirus policy we created depends on the client's requirements. We deploy a particular antivirus on the client site. This tool is the prime use of the current RMM. Along with that, we also use… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The network device is a good feature. In a place where you need to monitor your firewall switches, you can add an RMM tool and monitor it on the same screen on the same setup for the same client. Network devices are very good."
  • "Kaseya is a similar product and they have easier scripts. If you want to deploy one software to 100 machines, we need to dig into it and then we need to create the script and work with the support team and then we can deploy that particular script. The pre-built scripted is the one thing that I would definitely like to have improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate SolarWinds MSP Remote Monitoring & Management a nine out of ten. You should provide a simple solution where everything is at one point, but it is also really simple for technical support or a client to understand then. If you don't have an antivirus, you can go to a third-party for their services. If you keep the solution as simple as possible, then you definitely will win in this race because they don't want to do all the tasks themselves. If you have level one or level two guy, they also can easily understand that kind of solution. In that case, people will be attracted to the…

Lets us keep an eye on client infrastructure at all times in one central portal

What is our primary use case?

My main use case for SolarWinds RMM is monitoring my customers' infrastructure and devices. I use it primarily as a patch manager, but it also finds use in many recurring IT jobs that we undertake for our customers.

Pros and Cons

  • "I'm really happy with the background remote access, which allows me to easily change system internals such as registry keys and silently execute commands using the command prompt in the background. This kind of remote access makes it easy for us to do our jobs without getting in the customer's way."
  • "There is quite a bit of delay on the portal where we receive monitoring information from the endpoint agent on the remote device. Sometimes it gets stuck with no live response from the device, and you have to refresh the portal just to make sure that it's projecting the right information."

What other advice do I have?

SolarWinds RMM is a comprehensive remote monitoring solution with a lot of different features for different scenarios, many of which may not be relevant to your company's operations. Most of these features will add extra costs to using the software, so make sure you select only what you will actually be using or you may have to pay an unnecessarily large bill. I would rate SolarWinds RMM an eight out of ten.

Real-time monitoring platform that is stable with good support

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution to monitor the connectivity of our network devices.

Pros and Cons

  • "We like that this solution is in real-time, it gives us real-time monitoring."
  • "I would like to see notifications sent with SMS."

What other advice do I have?

SolarWinds is very good, it's one of the leaders in Gartner Magic Quadrant. The issue is the expense of this product. We had a team of three to deploy and maintain it during our testing. They are network and system administrators. While it's expensive, I would definitely recommend this product to others. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
