Likelihood to Recommend

Foglight

It really depends on why my colleague is evaluating Foglight. If it is for Database monitoring and management, I highly recommend it. If it is for anything else, I would encourage them to look at others in this space.

vRealize Operations

VRealize is well suited for an organization that is heavily invested in the VMware ecosystem. There are a ton of plugins and management packs that will allow you to integrate with just about every major area of your infrastructure whether its storage, backup, cloud, or monitoring related. It is less appropriate for a company that does not already have a financial licensing agreement with VMware already established as it can be very expensive if paid for a la carte.

Pros

Foglight

  • Foglight NMS is very light on resources given the amount of monitoring connectivity options it provides. It is one of the few that I've trialed in the past that offers SNMP v3 connections.
  • The dashboard is concise with the main areas of interest. It can be customized as well if you have a particular use case.
  • Setting up alerts is straightforward with the ability to set custom thresholds. Alert emails get sent by configuring a primary mail server with the option to add a backup mail server in the event of a primary mail server outage or connectivity issues.

The support is pretty good however some of the KB articles still reference different versions of the product so it can be hard to find answers to common questions

vRealize Operations

We are a VMware shop and need monitoring from VMware. Also, I am not the decision maker here. I believe because of being a VMware shop we choose VRO and also may be my company got a great deal. I like this product although there is a lot of stuff to improve

Return on Investment

Foglight

  • For the past 5 years, we heavily leveraged their application synthetic capabilities which caught several outages to our online presence before our users did or as they did, saving us valuable time and money to get back up and running.
  • Their ability to deep dive into databases has helped the rollout of our new software, speeding up the time to market. We have been able to identify problems with our code in the staging and development tiers, ensuring we release better, more stable software to our customers.
Aletha Diaz | TrustRadius Reviewer

vRealize Operations

  • We believe that the ability to preplan deployments with vRealize has proven its return on investments.
  • Our troubleshooting time has been reduced with vrealize because its constantly collecting performance data. typically vrealize will tell us cause of fault before we can determine it ourselves.
