Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

If you have rare, very old or very uncommon devices you may need to look elsewhere, but if you are using current tech then this product probably supports your devices.

Cons

  • The list of devices covers the most popular, but adding more types of devices is always helpful
  • Device types make it difficult to connect some times (on the vendor side) but the product does a good job, configuration could be easier for setting up devices.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.
Peter Dawe profile photo
We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.

  • Over 99% backups complete.
  • Solution is robust and quick to scale to meet demands.
