  • We moved from at least 5 different monitoring consoles to just 1 when we implemented SolarWinds Server Application Monitor
  • Application alerting allows us to quickly know when an application I down even after hours. Before this, we would have to wait for application users to complain to our help desk who would then escalate to the system admin

  • Within Hyper V and VMware, we run several versions. So without SolarWinds SAM, we needed 5 different consoles to check our various VMs. Even with all 5 different tools, the data that was available for monitoring was nowhere close to the level of detail provided by SolarWinds SAM.
  • SolarWinds Server and Application Manager is essential to us as it gives us insight into applications and the servers that host the applications allowing us to be proactive instead of reactive.

  • Less time spent investigating causes of issues. We are alerted straight away and can find the root cause of the issue in less time.
  • We have been able to ditch all our previous individual monitoring solutions, none of which integrated with each other for a single solution which fully integrates with each of the different modules to provide a single portal for monitoring and alerting.
