What advice do you have for others considering SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
I would recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
My advice to someone considering this solution would be to look on the THWACK forums, which is the SolarWinds community support. It's a user support forum. I'd pose lots of questions on THWACK and I'd take advantage of the 30-day trial as well, which is available for all corporates initially when you want to use a product. You get 30 days free of charge to try out a product without obligations. SolarWinds is fairly competitive. There are lots of tools and products out there so you really do need to look at what options are actually available before jumping in and going down the SolarWinds route. I think if anybody purchases the SolarWinds route, then they are buying into a solution as opposed to just purchasing a package. Once you put SolarWinds in, you're then tempted to go out and explore other SolarWinds modules and then very, very quickly you become absorbed into the SolarWinds community. I would rate it an eight out of ten.
We are planning on upgrading to the SL2000 model. As of today, I am satisfied with this solution. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
My advice to anybody who is researching this type of solution is to know your environment. Regardless of the vendor you choose, know the costs associated with all of your endpoints. I love using the tools provided in this solution. There is always room for improvement, but ultimately, I have always been happy with this product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
I would give the solution a 5 out of 10, there are opportunities to improve.
I have used many tools and this one is very interesting, but they need to provide better support and better training material. I would rate this solution an eight and a half out of ten.
