Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
The resources utilization was getting out of control. The previous manager gave all the resources without a question and didn't realize that vms work differently then physical devices. I was expected to create more VMs with the same resources. I needed a tool to look at the current enviroment and let me know which VMs are stale, zombies, etc.
Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
I tried some other VMware product, but the price was way high and I recommened this product to management and got it.
How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
I was able to right size the VMs and add a dozen more VMs for a new project without any increase in resource. Management is impressed and will be getting more resources for a big project and want me to lead the creating of the vm environment, It's a win-win!!
