VRealize vs SolarWinds


Does anyone have a set of good reasons I can use why we would use SolarWinds over VRealize VROps? I have some down already. More would be welcome.


  • I am quite curious about this subject as well.  The VROps test my organization built out seems to be quite handy, not sure if this is better suited for SW or not.

It's cheaper too unless you get vrops for free which seems to be the case with some large VMWARE environments I've seen lately.
