    SolarWinds patch management has had issues over the years. Sometimes requiring manual intervention to get resolved. The UI [with N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)] makes it easy to see status of systems and identify any alerts easily. Remotely monitoring the status of servers/computers. Managing the systems, patching, systems maintenance and remote support.

    Redgate SQL Monitor is well suited for database administrators or companies who implement software that relies on SQL servers. It will help them test new changes and ensure this will not impact the performance of their software. It is a last resort for MSPs to use to get to the bottom of an ongoing performance issue with their SQL server.

    Pros

    N-able

    • It provides fantastic remote access capabilities. The Take Control tool gives us a robust platform that is capable of remote controlling almost any endpoint we need to and the chat, file transfer, and screen recording tools are all exceptionally useful.
    • SolarWinds RMM is particularly useful as a single pane of glass solution that allows us to monitor and manage thousands of endpoints across dozens of different clients. It does a solid job of allowing us to sort, organize, and filter based off of who and what we want to see at any given time.
    • Due to its client based nature, the platform excels at in-depth monitoring of services, event logs, and the functionality of systems with custom script checks.

    • It will tell you if your server is under attack.
    • You can quickly see how your server is performing and which queries are taking the longest
    • I gives you the feeling that you are in control of your database, that you know what is going on for when they users ring up and tell you that the server is slow

    Cons

    N-able

    • UI speed and threading across multiple windows (1 window refreshing, causes all refreshes to hang).
    • Load times in certain menus, regardless of server specs.
    • Integration with 3rd party applications.
    • Speed of dev team response in regards to existing features malfunctioning, or major bugs that Solarwinds does not consider major.

    Redgate

    • Incremental releases can be buggy
    • Isn't the best for pinpointing performance issues
    • Web interface can be sluggish

        All prices are per server and include one year’s support and upgrades. For clusters, each node requires a license. Virtual machines also require a license. You don't need to buy extra licenses for multiple SQL Server instances on a server.

        Usability

        N-able

        The interface is easy to navigate. Setting up policies is straight forward. The antivirus and web filter are simple and exceptions are easy to make. Upgrading the agent is made simple and creating scripts is made fool proof. (Well, almost)

Unlike standard tools, you don't have to install several different executables to be able to have fully protected end points.

        Alternatives Considered

        N-able

        SolarWinds definitely is the the most ready out of the box as far as getting is up and running and you can start using it where other system go from need ing a little setup like importing MIBS to completely needing to configure the system. As far a performance once things are up and working I feel they all do a good job at basic monitoring and management. The difference is that SolarWinds does a good job at having things templated but allows you to customize some attributes. If you are want to make major customization for alerts and monitoring and other things SolarWinds is not the best option. But, then again, you will not need a team just to manage the system.

        Redgate SQL Monitor is a lot cheaper than SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer. I prefer the SolarWinds' design and that it offers integration with other SolarWinds products we already use. SolarWinds supports more than SQL servers (Oracle, MySQL, Maria DB, IBM DB2) and the analysis seems to be much better. The Spiceworks SQL Server monitoring is a free tool and is ideal for monitoring small business SQL instances.

        Return on Investment

        N-able

        • The ROI is immediate for us. The advanced alerting alone makes this product an ace in our bag. The confidence you have in your network is wonderful.
        • Another big ROI we get from the advanced alerting is the peace of mind that our engineers feel. We are a 24/7 shop, so being on-call goes from being hectic to extremely manageable.
        • The only negative I can honestly say is when the time comes to patch the product. Micro-patches are easy enough, but jumping versions can be a bit taxing.

        • The quality of the product and give a negative investment impression, on the plus side when it does work it is a god send.
        • Day to day tasks as made simpler, and a feeling of security of realised. Just don't change anything.
