Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

SolarWinds is our go to platform for monitoring all live/dev and test systems. VM is a critical tool in keeping tabs on performance and planning
  • Optimisation of resources used
  • Forward capacity planning
  • Problem resolution
  • Improved graphical displays
  • Analyses of groups of servers
  • Ability to recover under utilised resources keeps expansion costs to what is actually needed and not what you guess will be needed
  • Speed to analyse issues shortened greatly
SVM enables us to keep a low head count on engineers needed to fix issues and concentrate on project work and so speed up deployment of business critical needs
We have used this heavily when the SQL DBA's request extra resources on a regular basis
VCOPS but SolarWinds is more flexible and a lot cheaper
Ensuring you have space to grow is easily monitored with SVM
Highlighting over provisioned servers
