Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is very well suited if you are interested in deploying cloud native applications on Oracle Cloud ( OCI ) and need container support. OKE does not work well when you have some memory and compute bottlenecks that may require configuring the underlying cloud infrastructure to work in a specific way with the Kubernetes engine through OKE since configuration is harder with OKE.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is well suited for the environment where we need to monitor infrastructure architecture and applications purchased from other vendors. It is not suitable to monitor the applications made by the organization itself as it doesn't give full stack trace and is unable to monitor business transactions.

Pros

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Reduction in cost as no scalability is required from an IT infrastructure side.
  • Pre-configured, engineered and simple in nature. This helps in reducing complexity on the IT side.
  • Less number of workers needed. Helps in effectively reducing man power and using comp.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • It integrates with MS Windows, so you can keep track of services, processes or nic utilization/bandwidth.
  • You can also view the history of a lot of the monitor you choose. It can be helpful to isolate an issue if it's happening at a regular interval.
  • Linux and non-Windows OSs are supported using SNMP and even an agent if want to take advantage of other Solarwinds features.
  • It plays nice with other software, so you won't have conflicts with monitoring. Always a plus if more than one team is looking at data on the host.

Cons

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Visual network designer would assistant in ensuring configuration matches intended design.
  • Automatic and seemless migration of VMs from OCI Classic to OCI would show that Oracle is taking cloud infrastructure service seriously.
  • Better, faster support. Traditional methods of filing SRs date back to the 1980s. Online realitime chat with support that know what they're doing is critical.
  • One click template image load from Oracle Cloud Marketplace is basic omission. It's available for oci-c but not oci.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • I would much like to see the modules sold in categorically grouped bundles, such as a networking bundle which would include all modules relating to the network.
  • Would love to see an addition of an API or something like that to connect to VMware Vcenters.
  • Found that if you acknowledge alerts, it makes it very difficult to remediate them inside of the program.

What makes this product great is that it is easy to setup and configure. Many products are very time consuming to get setup and implement. This leads to a delay in their use, and slow adoption. Because of the ease of use of Solarwinds we have gotten a lot of use out of it.

We talk to a initial person and they may not be specialized in what we are trying to resolve. They then have to call back or have someone call back after that person is free from working on another issue with another customer.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

We have selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure mainly because of the native support for Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, which is our preferred choice for data storage in the case of our newest products. Another important factor was the Ravello service allowing us to deploy our existing VMware data center workloads without any modification to the currently configured virtual machines and network.

The tool does what it says, and gives you great insight into your environment. Out of all the SolarWinds products that I have used over the years, my top two are SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor and N-Able. Depending on your business needs, either will do the job, but it depends on your use case. For me, I like to work remote, be able to diagnose issues quickly, and fix issues from anywhere that I have an internet connection.

Return on Investment

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • We have an internal chargeback for infrastructure and we anticipate the cost factor will be neutral.
  • We have been impressed with the provisioning aspect of OCI and expect it to save on data center staff.
  • The scalability of OCI has been a timesaver for our environments.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • One of the biggest areas of ROI is for our DBA, with the combination of SAM and DPA we have been able to streamline the maintenance and troubleshooting of applications. On several instances, it has taken us probably less than 5 minutes to tell supervisors where the issue lies when something is not working.
  • The second area that it helps is helping us see trends on our servers to know if we need to address specific areas of growth to ensure continued productivity and smooth operations.
  • Initially this was not part of our "initial" purchase with SolarWinds, however, now it is definitely one of the core SolarWinds modules that are used on a daily basis to assist in monitoring our network.
