“Easiest Setup out of the Box!”

OverallWe gained as close to real time monitoring of services on our network that we've never had before! The pure fact that we can begin trouble shooting issues if they happen prior to end users telling us they have a problem on the network has kept everybody happy at work! The reporting tools are amazing as well for tracking how well we have been managing the network. This allows for development of IT Staff as well. Seeing the trends of the devices allows for targeted training to help prevent future related issues with the IT Staff. The tools are also very beneficial for our Top Management staff as well. They can see the benefits and effects of having a stable network more clearly now since trends can be shown and good (or bad) data can be used to related to recent events that helps drive our business model!
ProsThe auto discovery and how quickly you can customize reporting for your environment! The mobile alerts are also amazing! I like that we can now be already working on situations before end users call! Moreover, it's great that we can set thresholds to alert us as well so we never even need to get to that point!
ConsRight now the only issue we have with the package is that if we lose connection to our WLC/APs in our environment we have to set those back up. Thankfully this doesn't happen very often but it would be nice if OmniCenter could capture our current AP list and store that information for when OmniCenter detects them to be back online.

“OmniCenter is a easy to use tool and is very affordable.”

OverallOmniCenter is a monitoring, alerting, and reporting appliance (physical or virtual) which provides cost-effective and easy-to-deploy application, network, and systems management. It provides a unified single view into virtually all IT components, from end-user application experience to device-level performance and capacity planning. Our appliance-based architecture simplifies deployment, with all hardware and software pre-integrated. Several appliance options are available to suit any size environment or redundancy requirement, including clustering, hot-standby, and distributed data collection with centralized reporting and administration.

“Been using it for a few years now, easy to use, great reporting”

OverallSimple yet effective/detailed monitoring and automated alerts for critical issues.
ProsOmniCenter is very easy to use and customize from an administrator's perspective, and easily usable from Lower tier support staff. The Single pane of glass view for all services makes the purchase and implementation very justifiable to upper management. (yes even they can use it)
ConsInitial setup: out of the box it is very easy to get devices imported into the system, but the recommendation from Netreo is to have their support add the devices based on a list you give them. A simple one page document should be sufficient, as most Administrators will want to figure out the ins/outs on initial setup rather than have it done for them. (I do understand that some people do purchase it and don't have the technical ability to do it, but it should not be the default)

“Simple but very efficient monitoring tool!”

OverallThis software gives us insight into the health, trends of many different key components of our network.
ProsThis software is easy to use and have excellent customer support that will help you when and if it is needed. There are multiple ways you can monitor a server, network, device and you can also customize templates (or layers of template). You can see everything in one page. Router or network configuration can be managed. Very flexible in what it can do and provides integration with custom scripts, like you can use your own powershell scripts .
ConsThere is learning curve if you are not used to this type of product which have many options, possibilities. But the good thing is that they have friendly customer support you can call for help.

“Feature rich, logical monitoring tool with awesome support.”

OverallReplaced SCOM which was awful. Netreo OmniCenter saved us time and money on the SCOM renewal costs. Also gave us visibility as we finally had a system that we could trust
ProsTop 3 - Support - Development - Simplicity (once you understand templates) The support staff are great. Alot of the younger companies try and differentiate themselves by having exceptional support staff (Nimble customers will know what I mean). Netreo are 17 years young but their support staff are fantastic. you have a direct line to technical resources, saving you lots of time. They have a great VPN feature allowing them to access your system to troubleshot\perform upgrades they even offer a managed service if required. The product is constantly improving with regular major releases and features. The interface and construction on how to apply thresholds to devices takes a little while to understand but once its understood, its very easy to manipulate and customise to how you want to use the tool
ConsSupport times - This is a 100% US company so while support are available 24 hours for a UK company its generally towards the end of the working day that you will get responses to queries. For a monitoring tool this was fine with us. There are no built in metrics\thresholds for things like SharePoint and Citrix, however you can create customise process checks if required.

“Great responsiveness and quality support”

OverallBased on the support I had I would recommend
ProsThe support is excellent and he provides good answers which solve the root of the problem instead of simply providing an answer. He is knowledgeable and effective in his job. I appreciated that, although he is not obligated, he is willing to reply at all hours/days as we are also working around the clock to keep the campus up and running smoothly.
ConsThere are some bugs like any software but I want to focus this review on the quality support we have had with the support staff.

“Omnicenter review”

ProsGreat product that does what it says There are equal cost products out there. But when it comes down to support, adding new devices, learning about new features or tips and tricks. They are hands down the best out there. Installation is beyond easy, import a file or scans a subnet then adjust to taste. I always recommend this as it is hands down the easiest to get running and years later it is still the easiest to operate and use.
Cons

“Great team - Interested in partnering not selling and running. Support and customization = easy”

OverallMy clients finally have a single package that is integrated. Not a package that is 30 year old technology that has been added to over time to try and keep it current, but continuing to keep 30 year old tech. The other advantage is everything is one price, period. No additional price for netflow, or different types of devices.
ProsEverything in 1 place not 10 different packages that are linked somehow with tabs & no java needed. Can easily create new type of polled devices.
ConsWhile there are videos and training I would like to see more of this. I would like more control over how to consolidate a dashboard.

“Excellent product. Has tons of options and is adding more all the time.”

ProsThere are many benefits to this product. The ability to see the status of whatever you want to monitor in one pane of glass has got to be the most important. Second is the ability the granularity that is possible with monitoring while still maintaining simplicity. The third is the speed and friendliness of customer service when/if it is needed.
ConsLearning curve is an issue if you are not used to this type of product. There are so many possibilities that it is sometimes difficult deciding where to start.

“Omnicenter performs as it's supposed to, easy to use and administer.”

OverallNetwork/Device visibility.
ProsEasy to use and administer, does exactly as promised. Omnicenter allows us to monitor all our devices for status, exactly what we needed.
ConsCertain web service checks do not work depending on type of feature used on the URL. Version updates can sometimes move options into different section in the GUI.

“Very easy to use and staff made sure we understood what it is and how to use it to our benefit”

OverallI am to lower my down time as I am alerted right away.
ProsIt meets the need for alerts to my staff. I have very small staff and Omni Center automates the process and keeps us in loop. It's very important for small staff to stay updated on issue without manually monitoring it. Easy to read dashboard is nice too.

“Great product - vendor willing to add specific functionality on request”

OverallTransparency and visibility of all IT supported devices. Network reporting needs to be simplified (especially netflow). Customizable MIBs and templates for specific devices needs to be added. Dashboards need to have a more "modern" look.
ProsFlexible and easy to configure - usually these cannot be paired together. Low cost of ownership for a monitoring solution.

OverallI allows us to monitor all devices on our network.
ProsIt can monitor all types of SNMP devices and give status at a glance. The system is great for tracking the uptime and performance for the various systems and the parenting feature works well. The various device can be put in groups/categories and can also be tracked by location.
ConsThe system is very very slow. Sometimes it is almost unusable waiting for the screen to refresh. There are no help files. Most changes/settings need to be made by Netreo remotely. We found a lot of minor bugs with the system.

“OmniCenter has achieved our business goals, but not easily in all cases”

OverallAutomated alerts and incident management are key to our success. Omnicenter provides that functionality in a way that meets our current business needs.
ProsAlready in place and meeting our business goals for the most part. Nimble appliance with few moving parts under the hood. Easy to maintain from an administrator perspective. Support is wonderful, responsive, and extremely helpful.
ConsArchitecture is lacking. To achieve all of our business goals, a lot of customization has been required from Netreo. Most new features have to be developed and are not already in the software leading to long turnaround times for enhancements. A lot of configuration tweaking has to take place to meet our needs. VPN requirement is challenging to implement due to regulatory hurdles.

“Migrated to a cloud monitoring solution to add flexibility and resiliency to our environment”

OverallIt's cloud based
ProsOne of the selling points was that is cloud based. We wanted to know that our monitoring tool was always available and not a single point of failure.
ConsWe have had some availability challenges which resulted in a few outages. One of the other cons is the implimentation of netflow. It hasn't really been up to what we were expecting.
