Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager (VMAN)

SolarWinds it is a great tool, used during the last 10 years, by different teams inside IT Operations to detail, monitor, and notify thousands of different infrastructure and network devices that are physical and virtualized, on-premise and in the cloud and run in different environments and are going from simple to very specific monitoring configurations.
  • Easy to add devices to the SolarWinds console
  • A great visual Dashboard and console
  • A wide range of devices to monitor
  • Really good and customizable options for notifications
  • It could add more detail specifically for Unix servers.
  • Integrate more cloud services to monitor using the SolarWinds console
  • You can create different escalation points of contact based on time and type of failure.
  • You can be proactive instead of reactive based on alert configurations.
  • Centralize monitoring for a NOC department
  • Good performance of the application
  • Visually well designed
  • Really useful topology creation in comparison to most competitors
  • It works with most of the infrastructure companies
  • Every day the company adds new features and capabilities
  • Good support
  • Easy to integrate with your infrastructure
Based on my experience during the past years, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is the best tool available in the market for server monitoring. It has a very intuitive interface with a lot of options to map the server running in the different company networks. Probably it will be great if you can integrate the monitoring alerts with some automated task to fix several of the common server issues.
