NPM Virtual Machine (.OVA)

I would like to see NPM (and other SolarWinds modules) offered as a VM (.OVA).  This would remove the Windows and SQL Server requirements from the product.

I believe that this would also make a customer PoC more simple for the customer as they would not need to request a physical server or virtual machine for testing.

I see many software vendors moving in this direction.  Most notably, VMware creating a vCenter appliance that no longer requires Windows / SQL Server and is scalable to cover most environments.  This should also provide a more controlled environment / framework for SolarWinds to work within.

Thank you for your consideration.........Bruce

  • I would also love to see this. To me, for a monitoring application like NPM you want it outside of the servers you are monitoring.

    Plus, like the OP stated, you are not tying up a OS and SQL license which is a significant cost.
