Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager

NCM is being used by our network services group to backup device configuration across our entire network. We are expanding the use of this product to policy enforcement and configuration change auditing. This tool allows for automated configuration backup and gives peace of mind that we are prepared to restore services quickly in the event of total hardware failure to meet our SLA needs.

Pros

  • Easy installation and configuration of the application itself.
  • Easy device configuration management.

Cons

  • So far the product has been great for our needs.
  • Cost can be an issue.
  • NCM has allowed for lower turn-around-time on mass network-wide changes. This has allowed more time to focus on pressing issues or better use of time to research and develop other tools.
If an organization has many devices to maintain and audit, then this product is worth the money. Having all your devices backed up on a regular basis with an ability to compare configuration is an important feature. A smaller organization with a few devices would still see a benefit but the cost may make the case less compelling.
