Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is being used by the VMware team. It addresses the problem of not being able to easily see the health of the VMware environment. It gives the engineers the ability to see everything on a single pane of glass. You can see which VMs need more memory/resources and which have too much, in which resources can be reclaimed.
  • Single pane of glass
  • To be able to see VMware health/predictions of what is coming down the pike
  • Recommendations to improve the virtual environment
  • Sometimes there are glitches when updating the software
  • Free training videos
  • Allows me to receive customized alerts
  • I can use my resources efficiently
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager has been designed to reduce downtime and fix issues faster. This is crucial in preventing down time. This helps with retaining your job/position. The reporting feature is extremely helpful when requesting new resources/storage.
We have not benefited from this.
To be able to see everything on a single pane of glass is crucial to maintaining and understanding your virtualization environment. To be able to see which VM is consuming more memory than it should, to seeing the overall health of your environment allows you to be proactive.
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is well suited for quickly viewing or revealing what is really going on in your VMware environment. You can customize your dashboards to see what you need or want to see. SolarWinds is well suited if you are limited in VMware resources, to reclaim resources from VMs that are over provisioned.
