SolarWinds VMAN is beneficial in environments that have grown and have become hard to manage due to size. VMAN brings everything under one roof and has the intelligence to provide you with suggestions to keep it running like a top. It has saved me countless times when it comes to VM performance issues by letting me know that they were lacking resources.

[It is well suited for] full integration with the virtual environment (VMware vcenter in our case). [It is also useful] when updating [the] host to a new version, including [a] new version of VM Tools. Messages are automatically created in SolarWinds VMAN to notice which VM's still need to be updated with [the] newer version of VM tools. This [makes] management [easy].

I would recommend Virtualization Manager to any colleague that already has a SolarWinds Implementation, or is looking to implement a SolarWinds Monitoring Solution. The licensing and support for one product are much simpler than mixing products. If a colleague is already full into another solution such as Operations Manager and SCCM, then I think I would recommend something along with the Microsoft Family of monitoring products.

VM-based environments are usually plagued with resource allocation issues. With the SolarWinds VMAN, you can easily identify and reclaim resources to be reassigned for optimization.

When running a hybrid environment, a single pane of glass for performance monitoring and alerting is critical. SolarWinds Virtualization Manager (VMAN) is well suited to monitoring today's complex hybrid environments with both on-premises and cloud environments. I wouldn't recommend the product for organizations with just a single hypervisor, as you might not get the full benefits.

I believe SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is well suited for monitoring and troubleshooting virtualized infrastructure in an enterprise setting, especially with variable load requirements.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager (VMAN) provides complete insight into your VMWare and hypervisor environment. This includes cloud and on-prem. Virtualization Asset Summary provides recommendations for fine-tuning your VM environment for performance issues. It lets you know if you have over-allocated/under-allocated your resources to your VM. VMAN also provides information on the Storage which supports the VM environment. Capacity planning reports are available to find out if the current VM environment can support future demands for your business or if additional resources will be needed.

This SolarWinds [Virtualization Manager (VMAN)] product, let you easily monitor your physical servers as well as your virtual. Depending on your environment, that can be a huge advantage.
One interesting feature is the possibility to consolidate the data generated from our multi vendor infrastructure.
The map feature gives you a better understanding with the possibility to visualize host applications.

Solarwinds VMAN is best suited for VMWare and Hyper-V Hosts environment monitoring from hardware perspective and VM Guest Perspective. However Solarwinds has introduced support for Nuatanix environment monitoring that still need more enhancements, and hence its a good start by Solarwinds - but too early to say perfect solution. Sprawling is also another feature which makes it more usable.

It's integrated with the SolarWinds Orion platform of tools, it has great insight, and works well. It has saved me staff by helping me be more automated and efficient. The automated alerting is very valuable and when combined with the other tools in Orion and offerings from SolarWinds gives you and complete solution for everyday use.

It would appear more mature with regards to on premise workloads in comparison to cloud workloads - but I would like to imagine this is all being handled in the roadmap.

Also as per previous point with regards to container workloads. Not sure if agent of some form is being developed we could include in container images relatively easily?

Based on my experience during the past years, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is the best tool available in the market for server monitoring. It has a very intuitive interface with a lot of options to map the server running in the different company networks. Probably it will be great if you can integrate the monitoring alerts with some automated task to fix several of the common server issues.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager (VMAN) is a product that works very well for my organization. The program is very strong in reports including under and oversizing of VMs and related resources within our on-prem deployment. The reporting tools for AWS-based resources is not as strong as the options within VMware, however, these capabilities are getting better.
