If you need a starting point, SolarWinds is a good start. Be sure to know how many objects or element you plan to monitor to determine the licensing and the topology of your environment to help scale out your deployment. If you have those down, you’ll be able to up in running in no time Additionally, a nice thing about SolarWinds is that the company always looks to improve their products. Since they regularly update the software for stability and new features, it’s not easy to pinpoint items for improvement. Through the Thwack community, they get great feedback from customers for feature improvements as well as ideas to use the product better in ways beyond original intentions. My experience is that if a feature directly impacts my daily routine, then the product needs improvement. So far, any issues I’ve had in the past have been rectified by Support, added as feature to correct, or new enhancements that never allow me to face problems reports by others. View full review »

SolarWinds has a network for applications, for virtual infrastructure and every other thing we can think of. Users can look for a module that would suit their company they can buy it and integrate. If you are looking for end-to-end visibility in your infrastructure I think SolarWinds should be the place you to go. They've got you covered. I would rate this solution at 9.5 out of 10.

It's a good solution. If you work with Microsoft SCOM, or are considering it, you should look at SolarWinds instead. It's a perfect product. I would rate the solution ten out of ten. View full review »
