Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
We'd outgrown our in house monitoring solution and needed more tools beyond simply monitoring devices and applications.
Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
We are now heavily reliant upon SolarWinds for our monitoring and reporting needs. We have several departments that use various tools in Orion, and at the same time, we still have utilities that aren't being utilized to their potential due to organizational growth and lack of human resources to catch up. The 4 suites I referenced here are just the 4 that I personally use on a daily basis. As the company continues to grow, so does our requirements for our monitoring system and the capabilities thereof. We will eventually catch up and be able to organize our solutions and use them more efficiently and achieve the goal of complete accuracy.
