ManageEngine OpManager

This product is definitely suited for small to medium-sized businesses. Not sure how well the software would run in large environments (300+ servers).

WhatsUp Gold

WhatsUp is suitable for network inventory, device health, and status. However, it is not suitable for large scale configurations/backup configuration features as provided by different vendors. A tabular user interface can be replaced by graphical representation for much better understanding.

Cons

ManageEngine OpManager

  • It would be good if they would update more often. Upgrade history seems to be slowing on new versions/features the last couple of years.
