Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

We are currently using it within my department as it does not provide any value to the other departments. It is currently used with all of our other SolarWinds products that provide a fantastic monitoring environment that helps us find/resolve issues quickly.
  • Monitoring virtualization environments.
  • Identifying asset locations within the virtualization environment.
  • Identifying possible causes of problems within our entire environment.
  • Orion environment can at times be slow to load.
  • Less time to troubleshoot problems.
  • Fewer resources required to troubleshoot problems.
  • Faster resolution time to problems due to the ability to faster identify where problems are.
It consolidates the view of our virtual environments into one portal and in those views makes it easy to find details on different aspects of the environment. This has allowed us to better keep an eye on what is happening in the environment and quickly track down cause and provide a resolution to the problem.
We have utilized this feature to plan for future projects or expansion projects based on need. By having the capability to put in these what-if details it allows us to show leadership in an easy to view fashion what impact changes being made by projects being proposed will have on our environment.
We have not utilized this capability.
We use a variety of SolarWinds solutions to cover our entire environment. It allows us to centrally locate monitoring and provides an ease of troubleshooting by being able to view things from the top down. These products on their own are good, but used in combination depending on what you have within your environment make things great.
We have trialed almost all of the SolarWinds family of products if they were seen to have a potential positive effect on our environment and ability to find/resolve problems. We are currently using all of the products outlined previously as it gives us an excellent top down view of our entire environment to find/resolve problems.
This paired with the other SolarWinds suite of tools is a great all-encompassing monitoring environment. By itself it does a great job, but with everything else it's a complete solution for an entire environment.
