SolarWinds was the commercial tool that our teams disliked the most even though it is windows only, other commercial tools had a Linux version but we found them to be unstable and/or poorly implemented. So we bit the windows bullet and installed a windows server in our Linux environment for Orion/NCM, advantage is that it installed easily enough and we could expand our SolarWinds tools via Orion and have them all on the same place. Disadvantage, we're a bunch of Linux admins with windows as a second language and probably caused a lot of our own storage and compute problems with our ineptitude, lesson here is to have a competent windows admin install and set up your server. Once it was up and running we found SolarWinds NCM to be more stable and functional than any of the other products we evaluated and to be the easiest to integrate other monitoring tools into.

MS is meant for windows monitoring and up/down for mostly everything else. Moved away from MS System Center. Now we have better visibility and management can get reports. The other teams have added Linux to Solarwinds and also see improvements in monitoring. Whether you use snmp (v3), wmi or some other credentials to connect to you system, Solarwinds will more than likely be able to manage and monitor it.

Unlike Nagios Core, SolarWinds runs on more operating systems than just a few Linux distributions so we have more flexibility in terms of deployment options. Open-source options can often be very good alternatives but one has to consider that sometimes the free initial price will be offset by many hours spent by multiple engineers fixing issues; with proprietary software, the capital outlay is higher but you get a solution that is guaranteed to work and backed by a world-class support team and company. Furthermore, Nagios Core isn't supported unless you purchase an additional support plan.

SolarWinds in our case is used in conjunction with other tools such as IBM Netcool manager. We reviewed net brain, but their functionalities looked like an overkill for our case the level of detail provided was too much and there was a more steep learning curve. We preferred SolarWinds to have only the basics. A similar story happened with ScienceLogic

SolarWinds provided a larger suite of features compared to competitors whilst also retaining a friendly user experience. Some other products are not as intuitive or require a lot more clicks to perform a task which SolarWinds Network Device Monitor can perform easier. It allows many users with a lower amount of experience to use the product and perform tasks easier than other products.

SolarWinds Network Device Monitor provides great value for money and provides a host of options which in some cases cost more in other competitors or are simple not available. SolarWinds Network Device Monitor is simple to implement and can be up an running with little to no training required. The user interface is very intuitive and is easy to navigate. The software is light, fully web enabled and can be used on multiple platforms.

It is used to monitor servers and services and used to monitor wireless. It is scaling easily because there is a plan for an increase in the number of devices. It has also the feature of SMS and email notification also which helps in the alert notification. It supports various OS systems like Windows and Linux. whereas SolarWinds Network Device Monitor these features are not available.

Zabbix is now a complete new-age infra monitoring tool while SolarWinds is specific to be used with complex and multi-architecture setups. SolarWinds has its own benefits and cost is still on the higher side which is one of the reasons you will not find it being used with all the clients.

We have SCOM deployed in our environment, and it works well for discovery and basic monitoring. SolarWinds provides so many more management capabilities, though, when it comes to monitoring, troubleshooting, and managing our network devices that SCOM just can't do.

Cognizant has done extensive POC/POV on SolarWinds modules specifically on NPM and we believe it has out of the box broad range of devices, vendors, and versions monitoring and also multiple modules options like NCM for configurations Management, NTA for network traffic analyzer, DPA for database performance monitoring, etc... and BAU is very easy.

Solarwinds is a great product because it monitors and reports on any network device, whereas VeeamOne and OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter are great tools, but they focus on their products mostly. I like to be able to monitor all of my network devices regardless of what vendor they are from.
