ManageEngine OpManager

Great for managing infrastructure on the same LAN. Does not work to monitor Azure/AWS metrics.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine OpManager

The other competing products in functionality stack up pretty good but pricing is always a lot higher for what you get with the other solutions for small/medium sized companies use.

Pandora FMS

Before using Pandora FMS, tests were carried out with all these tools:
  • Nagios
  • Zabbix
  • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
  • IBM Tivoli
  • PRTG
  • SolarWinds
Pandora FMS allows simple customization by making adjustments to text files, developing agent add-ons without the need to be a programmer, there is no scenario where we could not take data and save it in PandoraFMS, IoT, industrial products, and everything that any client needs to monitor.

Return on Investment

ManageEngine OpManager

  • Allow proactivity in your services.
  • Reports and department KPIs.
  • Process automation for service continuity.
Daniel J. Canto Bonilla | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pandora FMS

  • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
  • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
  • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
