vRealize Network Insight Other Solutions Considered

Scott Mathewson
SDDC Practice Lead at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We use a couple different tools, like RightScale, for application rationalization. Obviously, it's very challenging to get data out of a virtualized environment. vRNI does it better than anything we've used in the past. This is the biggest differentiator over other tools that we have been using. Now, we use vRNI along with other application analysis tools that we use in other practices within our company. We have been able to essentially add a lot of value using this tool with other practices and offerings that we do around application rationalization. View full review »

We looked at some Netscout stuff but it just wasn't working out. We looked at Cisco Tetration Analytics instead but it wasn't giving us what we wanted. View full review »

We're not really comparing it to any other vendors. I don't know of anyone that does microsegmentation and whose solution is integrated within VMware's environment View full review »

We initially went with what we were using on our traditional memory side, your traditional network monitoring. CA Spectrum is what we use on that side. We've looked at that and some basic netflow monitors. View full review »

Senior Consultant at DynTek
We considered Cisco and we considered some other small vendors, as well as Palo Alto. But eventually, because we are a VMware shop and our entire team was working with VMware, we went with this product. View full review »

Principal Architect at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Our company did some work with SolarWinds, but they're not quite the same thing. Also, Dell's old Foglight, I don't know if they're still around. That was another one, but it was not really in the same arena. They didn't really do what we wanted. View full review »

System Engineer Technician at Bechtle
We show the solution to customers who need to implement NSX or will be moving into the virtualization, because even nowadays, there are still companies which are not virtualized. The graphical interface makes it easier for customers to see the benefits of it. We also have Cisco customers who use Cisco switches. Cisco has a CLI tool where you can check throughput, performance, etc. View full review »

Manager, Data Center at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
For me, it was a no-brainer because we would like to integrate everything with VMware. I hate to go to another supplier, use another tool, to do the same thing. View full review »

This provides a holistic view. The other computer tools provide certain pieces of it. This has a more holistic approach, the big picture. View full review »
