AWS Storage Gateway

The AWS Storage Gateway is well suited if you want a quick way to off load your backups to the cloud to eliminate the need of a offsite storage location for physical tapes. The ROI is quite good from that perspective since you can utilize Glacier storage for the virtual tapes. The AWS Storage Gateway is not well suited if data sets being backed up is very large. The lack of de-duplication will add time to your backup. It will also increase the egress charges

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor is well suited when you have several storage from different vendors and you need a single point of view of all of them. Also, when you need more details of how your applications use the storage and get more detailed information like usage, IOPS, and other metrics that can help you to do fast troubleshooting or do track of the data flow.

Pros

  • It is good for S3 attachments to traditional servers.
  • It is relatively easy to manage, once configured.
Joe Hughes | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

  • Unmasks storage performance metrics and gives a common dashboard for monitoring.
  • A simple, intuitive interface for adding supported storage frames.
  • Lineage -- "The guest OS is connected to the virtual host and the virtual host is connected to the ... wait, what LUN is that?!?" #SOLVED.

Cons

AWS Storage Gateway

  • Ease of finding useful helpful tips on using AWS
  • Dumbing down of the technical jargon on the site
  • Short sharp to the point step videos - answering some common questions
  • Remembering not everyone is an IT person - could be more user friendly
Rosemary Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

  • Most of the metrics are fairly high level
  • No visibility into virtual disks (you need Virtualization Monitor for that)
  • Not much granularity in hardware health

Alternatives Considered

AWS Storage Gateway

I find it great to work with AWS Storage Gateway platform due to its flexibility and the nature of its performance in our company. The cost of operating this product has been suitable and fitted our budgeting plans. Data safety is enhanced from end-to-end encryption and in case of any attacks we are notified to take possible actions. It monitors effectively all the storage processes that run across our applications and offers solutions to any bottleneck that affects data storage performance.

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

SRM is a standout against all of the competitors really. If you own Orion, then this is a must-have module to integrate, especially with DPA, if you also have the module. Out of the box, it is a fantastic product. Whereas a product like Nagios requires development work to get it even remotely close to SRM. PRTG is cluttered and messy and OpsManager functionality isn't even on the same level.
