Easily visualize your environment's performance and forecast its capacity
Our company uses the solution for forecasting capacity and performance via cloud visualization that is maintained by Dell.  The solution is a maintenance tool that is used by our storage and backup teams to view PowerScale and our cloud.  The tool for forecasting capacity is valuable.  PowerScale…

Provides strong event correlation features, but its initial setup should be made easier
The solution's integrations are out of the box, and it is easy to integrate the tool with many technologies through its APIs. Moogsoft is always deployed on the cloud. Since it's a SaaS-based solution, it's cloud-delivered but also deploys to a hybrid or on-premises situation. The solution attaches itself to any environment size, but it's delivered via SaaS. The solution has room for improvement, but it's a pretty good technology. It does very well in delivering a big impact for businesses. Now, since it's owned by Dell and has the financial backing, it'll go from strength to strength. It's built by two very experienced co-founders who have used this type of technology before and were very much ahead of the curve. I'm still implementing the solution, and it is a platform that can deliver to something as big as HSBC. Overall, I rate the solution a seven out of ten.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"Fewer vulnerabilities have been observed in the four years we have used the solution."
"Has really nice roll-up dashboards."
"The best thing about this solution is that you can check for the infrastructure and system updates that you might need to be compliant with the Cloud."
"The tool for forecasting capacity is valuable."
"Mobile application is the most valuable feature for us. We can monitor all the storages on our phones. It's really good."
"The tool's event correlation and AI are its strongest parts."
"I like the prediction features."
"Moogsoft is easily deployable and ready to use."
"The Event Management feature is quite valuable."
"The solution is extremely helpful with correlating IP failures and it has a very good sort of flow chart of IP systems. For example, if you see a failure in system A, you can track it down to the system causing the issue. This is a very handy feature."
"There are AI features in Moogsoft. Moogsoft has one wonderful feature that allows you to convert multiple alarms into situations. Generally, all other MoM tools get the alarms, and then convert it into an incident directly. There is one extra layer they have added before converting any alarm into an incident. Suppose there are multiple alarms that are somehow all related to a single source of issue. It converts all the alarms into a single situation, which then gets converted into an incident."
"Incident management is streamlined with Moogsoft. One standout feature is its unique situation-creation capability, differentiating it from other fault management tools. While other tools typically convert alarms directly into tickets or incidents, Moogsoft adds a middle layer where multiple alarms can be aggregated into one incident. Moogsoft's strong AI capabilities also allow it to correlate similar alarms automatically based on past experiences."
"The AI component allows you to check previous cases and diagnose problems easily."
 

Cons

"The reporting capabilities of this solution could be improved."
"Supporting legacy systems is an area that can be improved."
"PowerScale is the only file system offered and that is limiting."
"Doesn't do well in terms of integrating with technologies other than Dell."
"In terms of improvement, they should enhance the product range."
"I would like to see how Moogsoft integrates with the multi-cloud and brings out a single pane of glass, to see everything on one screen."
"The solution's initial setup is complex, and it should be made easier."
"It is taking a long time to set it up and could do more to roll out quickly."
"They should consider including Chatbot."
"I would like to see additional reports or information on the dashboard that includes metrics about CPU usage and memory."
"The tool needs to improve its support. It appears that the support responsiveness from Moogsoft is not aligned with the severity of the incident. Instead of proactively addressing issues, customers have to chase Moogsoft for resolution. In Moogsoft, unlike other tools like Splunk, the process follows a step-by-step sequence. You need to start each process in a specific order, typically following a sequence."
"Moogsoft is dependent on external products to do orchestration and SOP-based functionality."
"They are very much dependent on open-source technologies like RabbitMQ message bus. They are using open-source databases, Apache Tomcat, NGINX. If we face any issues with Apache Tomcat or the RabbitMQ message bus, then we do not get support from them. We have to troubleshoot it ourselves."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The solution is more expensive than NetApp which offers file systems in various price ranges."
"It's a very cost-effective and competitive product."
"When compared to other solutions, it is quite good."
"Moogsoft's licensing is consumption-based, so the price may increase depending on the environment."
"The solution is very good from a business impact point of view, but it's quite expensive because it's an enterprise-grade solution."
