Reliable, straightforward deployment, with good management and filters

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We are very happy with the stability of the solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have found that SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server is scalable.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support could definitely be better. I have opened a ticket with technical support, but with no response.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward, but we have had some problems with the integration of Windows. If you want to get logs from Windows to the Syslog server, it needs some additional services and setup, in a more complex way. This is for Windows only. If you get logs from Cisco switches, it is easy. If you manage one switch it will take maybe fourteen or fifteen minutes to set up the switch. However, Windows takes a long time. 

What about the implementation team?

We do our deployment all in-house.

What other advice do I have?

If anyone needs log management, we recommend SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server. I would rate SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
