This is an interesting idea - and one that I somehow never contemplated, even though all the control mechanisms are already there. I can see pushback from the Solarwinds side (and I understand that pushback), but there's an compelling set of capabilities that already exist. Since a lot of automation/orchestration on the virtualization side is sort of already 'owned' by existing players (puppet/chef/Vmware themselves), it might be a tough sell on the app development business case side, but it's a good topic for further discussion.
No one internal has approached me for a comprehensive suite. I have been approached by outside I.T. Monitoring/Management vendors, though.
