"IT organizations now have a powerful alternative to current traditional enterprise solutions -- SolarWinds," said Denny LeCompte, SVP of product strategy, SolarWinds. "From IT management point solutions driven by the needs of today's IT pro to comprehensive, top-to-bottom visibility and control over the business stack, SolarWinds' product portfolio is equipped to support IT organizations with disciplines across multiple functions and varying degrees of infrastructure complexity while delivering an unrivaled ease of use and affordability."
"When I looked at SolarWinds six years ago, it lacked this product spread and scalability but was already on the right track. Its expansion has probably obviated an earlier risk of being swallowed up by a large infrastructure vendor," said Peter Williams, Bloor Research. "Rather, with a large product portfolio and major cost and user-friendliness advantages over the Big Four -- underpinned by revenues from a huge existing user base -- there is no obvious reason why we should not soon talk about the high-end infrastructure management market in terms of the Big Five."
"SolarWinds has changed the way we do business -- even changing our lines of business. We now have a confident, specific software partner for network monitoring and management that we can lead with on every network project. We have specific services tied to SolarWinds and the functionality that it provides. It is easy enough for any of our customers to get started with, while being complex enough to meet advanced monitoring and reporting requirements," said Joshua Biggley, operations architect, Bulletproof Solutions Inc. "Like most people, I used HP OpenView, WhatsUp Gold and, in some test environments, Nagios. HPOV hid my data behind an archaic UI, Nagios, ever extensible, made my upfront investment too high to gather simple data, and WhatsUp Gold started off well enough, but didn't have the stamina to finish."
