3. Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
A. Orion, Netflow Traffic, Network Performance monitor
4. What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
A. We did not have a broad view of all the nodes and current status, if a node was down we rely on the "Yield System" (people will complain) and we were the last one to notice. With Orion, we are very pro-active in solving and identify possible issues.
5. Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
A. No. we decide that the price and benefit matched our budget. Also it is easy to maintain and use. others products were too robust and need one person job to maintain.
6. How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
A. We have an interactive map and Visio diagram for all our data centers and network. The reports and view that we have is impressive at the point that our co-workers consume less bandwidth (less youtube) when they see our reports .
