    Atera

    For me, Atera has been a great tool that I added to my arsenal. I wanted something where I could manage my clients' Windows updates. As I used the software, I began to realize all of the various things Atera could do. Now it is a critical component of my business and I would not be able to properly function without it.

    HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

    This software is suited for a smaller organization with a small datacenter that uses mainly HP hardware. Once the environment gets larger it would pay to move to some of their paid for products
    Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Atera

    • Easy to deploy, both in general or to a specific customer.
    • Remote management tools that are in line with every other major solution out there.
    • Real-time alerts that allow for easy monitoring of vital systems.
    • Configurable threshholds on alerts so the system can be tuned to only notify when there is a problem according to certain metrics.
    Caleb Yankus | TrustRadius Reviewer

    HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

    • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at scanning for devices and adding them for monitoring is almost effortless.
    • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at detecting most HP hardware and integrating with local management software.
    Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Atera

    • Ticket automation, more options to specific cases or conditions, and change client assigned to ticket, or be able to assign a ticket for the client without hassle of emailing them back or having to create a fake contact.
    • Include notes for client that are not file attachments, maybe integration with a cloud service like Google Docs or OneDrive.
    • Integration with other remote access tools would be helpful.
    Maycon Menezes | TrustRadius Reviewer

    HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

    • I think some of the areas that HP Systems Insight Manager can improve is non HP hardware.
    • This software also sometimes struggles handling larger environments.
    • This software also has issues managing environments that aren't set up perfectly.

    As of right now, we have found nothing that can offer as many features as Atera does along with the affordability. They are doing monthly releases each month and not just making small changes (shared scripting library, chocolatey support, Install packages, Splashtop SOS support, Scheduled tickets to name a few). The uptimes are great and accessibility to the dashboard has yet to be limited. We are a happy customer and bordering on fanboy status now

    For basic functions it's very easy to set up and use. However, for more advanced functions it takes a lot of time to figure out its quirks

    Atera support provides answers to my questions lightning fast. They have never left me feeling like I'm out there on my own. I can ask questions by email, or by chat, or by opening a ticket with them and they are always on it quickly. They also have a forum where other Atera users can help you if you need it, and you can also add feature requests via the forum.

    It's good for small organizations that use HP branded equipment
    Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Alternatives Considered

    Atera

    We had tried Syncro, Naverisk, Pulseway - dollar for dollar stack for stack, Atera blew them out of the water. Atera is easy to use, easy to manage, has flourishing facebook and reddit groups for support and they update their knowledge bases daily. Their communication and support has been bar none.

    HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

    Some of the other products I use for system management are HP SiteScope and SolarWinds Orion NPM and APM. SiteScope is another good HP product but it isn't very cost effective to use for general system management. It's good for performing complex alerting and monitoring. SolarWinds makes a great product but it is better geared for gathering statistics and performance data real-time and historically. Again the cost of this product makes it ineffective for general system monitoring.

    Return on Investment

    Atera

    • The lack of cost per unit is a great asset. Our team consists of two members who really use the product, and the cost being per member means we can have hundreds of machines and still only pay for two users.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

    • Since this software is free if you buy HP hardware the cost is nothing which is nice for cash strapped businesses.
    • This software has a somewhat difficult time handling large environments where systems are not configured perfectly for this software.
    • I would always recommend having multiples of this software installed for redundancy because generally unless it and the environment is properly configured it can require maintenance.
