Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

We use it in our IT department for quick access dashboards that show the various health statuses and information of our VMs.
  • Shows obvious graphical status of what's going on right now
  • Emailed alerts
  • Fantastic drilldown
  • Seamless incorporation into the Orion framework
  • Great community
  • Less system overhead
  • Less redundancy with other Orion packages
  • Create a singular VM hierarchy that removes the legacy Orion server mishmash
  • Less down time
  • Faster return to functional status
  • Better warnings as to when hardware should be upgraded (no surprises)
We are fairly heavily invested in other SolarWinds packages already so why add another software package when I can plug a module into a proven framework I'm already running.
Although there is quite a bit of carryover between what I was already getting I think with my SAM module, overall it's still a very valuable package even for small installs. Simple dashboards and alerts can help prevent catastrophic down time if used properly.
