It's best suited for large/multinational organisations with complex networks with limited qualified personnel across every location. However, I wouldn't recommend it for a small organisation with a very simple network architecture.

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

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Ease of deployment and use the product. Friendly user interface and quick network discovery with a large number of monitors.

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.

Return on Investment

  • Ability to maintain network equipment inventory and health reports.
  • Inability to make the backups of the device using scripting or configurations of network devices.
  • Less graphical representation of circuit or network traffic.

  • It is quite a bit cheaper than SolarWinds competing solutions and offers an overall better value.
