Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

We have been with Pingdom since before it was SolarWinds Pingdom. It remains stable and solutions driven and has done so for many years. While it has many features we do not utilize, we are always looking to see which ones we can start to use when we have time. Some of the more advanced features are more expensive, but we do not use many of those.

We have only used Pingdom for these needs, so I can't speak directly to competitors. That being said, for the reasons we used Pingdom it was fantastic value and the fact we never bothered to look for a competitor speaks volumes about our satisfaction with the product.

We use a mixture of atlassian products and chose to use this at the beginning of 2020 when our org switched to full remote work posture. While it was nice having integration with opsgenie and our jira ticketing system it did not provide quite the mixture of flexibility and usability we needed. Between limits on API calls and a less than perfect documentation experience the choice to instead choose Pingdom and it's vastly deeper and more flexible tools to give us the data we needed.

  1. PRTG Network Monitor was a far more complicated tool to use and set up albeit it does both Internal and External monitoring. The setup wasn't intuitive and there are too many configuration options to complete to form an alert
  2. Amazon CloudWatch is specific to AWS resources and cannot be easily use outside of the AWS Ecosystem

It is very suitable for our organization as metrics that it provides like disk space, CPU usage and availability of application, etc. And the main thing is it has good integration with OpsGenie and Jira Software so when our application is down or has any issue then we get a call and mail regarding the same so that issue is fixed faster and it helps in our business.

Some of the products mentioned here are much more "holistic solutions" for monitoring, analyzing, logging, alerting, etc., but for the use case, we use SolarWinds Pingdom. I think that SolorWinds Pingdom is much simpler and friendlier for configuring and maintaining. We selected SolarWinds Pingdom for this case due to our previous acquaintance which left a good impression on us.

we migrated from site 24x7 to pingdom because we have been facing issues with the monitoring and alerting. Our customers would reach out to us first rather than our monitoring tool notifying us that there is a problem. Its administration is also very complicated and compared to it pingdom took very few time to configure to be up and running.

We selected SolarWinds Pingdom based on the feature set we desired, which was simply a monitoring solution for our websites and other critical network services. The decision to use SolarWinds Pingdom was based on the simplicity of their mobile app and website.

Newrelic has some simple uptime monitoring but it has very unclear pricing, which depends on how often you ping. And for our needs the next pricing bracket was way too much, maybe 10x. This could make sense if we were going to use the other monitoring capabilities of NewRelic but we weren't. Datadog has better pricing options in terms of clarity, so we could calculate the pricing, but again it was a bit pricey and we didn't plan to use the other monitoring capabilities of their platform.
