What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
We are a global company and a global team was created to monitor the network. This was to remove the outsourced monitoring.
Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
Management look at other options, but SolarWinds was the only who came within budget with the featured we wanted.
How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
We have had the product for a month and we turned off all the alerts as they were generating too many emails. Then we turned on just the up/down and validated and are contuning to turn on more alerting. Proactive monitoring with alerting has greatly improved our up time and justified upgrading many circuits. We also realize that our virtual infrastructure is under powered for what we want to do.
