My advice to someone considering this solution would be to look on the THWACK forums, which is the SolarWinds community support. It's a user support forum. I'd pose lots of questions on THWACK and I'd take advantage of the 30-day trial as well, which is available for all corporates initially when you want to use a product. You get 30 days free of charge to try out a product without obligations. SolarWinds is fairly competitive. There are lots of tools and products out there so you really do need to look at what options are actually available before jumping in and going down the SolarWinds route. I think if anybody purchases the SolarWinds route, then they are buying into a solution as opposed to just purchasing a package. Once you put SolarWinds in, you're then tempted to go out and explore other SolarWinds modules and then very, very quickly you become absorbed into the SolarWinds community. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

My advice to anybody who is researching this type of solution is to know your environment. Regardless of the vendor you choose, know the costs associated with all of your endpoints. I love using the tools provided in this solution. There is always room for improvement, but ultimately, I have always been happy with this product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I have used many tools and this one is very interesting, but they need to provide better support and better training material. I would rate this solution an eight and a half out of ten.

I think the price is fair. I haven't quite done price-to-price on a comparable product but I do think the price is fair. I'm looking at AI too. Artificial Intelligence that will monitor the cloud.

For our environment, we pay approximately $25,000 USD yearly. It is a lot cheaper than a lot of the other vendors.

It depends what your environment is. We have very good experiences with two solutions. When you're using Cisco Networking, their Stealthwatch solution (also part of their EA, a full NBA/ADS* solution) does a very good job and gets more and more integrated in their Networking, Security and Admission Control solutions. When you are looking for a less expensive solution, we have very good experiences with Flowmon, a spin off from the University of Brno (Tsjech Republic) and a very mature NBA/ADS* solution as well. In NL Flowmon is successfully in use by education, healthcare, finance and transportation. *NBA/ADS: Network Behavior Analysis / Anomaly Detection System.
