After a long and in-depth search for a network monitoring solution, we found Opmantek the best fit for all our needs. With their excellent support, onsite training and almost unlimited ability to be customized to fit our needs, it was no contest.

IT teams around the world are switching to LINUX powered monitoring tools to gain control over their legacy monitoring systems.
Opmantek has solved these problems through working closely with our customers. We build the software by listening to what our customers say they need.
See why customers choose Opmantek over the competition.
|Open-Source at the core (NMIS and Open-AudIT Community)||Closed Source|
|Just needs one server until you grow (No Microsoft Licences – save thousands)||Needs performance server and SQL database server (Windows Server and SQL Licence)|
|Less hardware costs – less CPU & Memory||More hardware costs – more CPU & Memory|
|Fast Responsiveness||Slow responsiveness|
|Excellent support – easy to access / no difficult fault qualification||Support – must prove a major issue to access human support.|
|Enterprise Support Customers have input to roadmap||No – suggestions by thwack only (and then slow)|
|Custom development available for any customer||No|
|GUI is easy to follow (intuitive for new users)||GUI is hard to follow (not intuitive for new users)|
|Can be deployed as SaaS, Private Networks, Telco, MSP (multi tenant) ready. The bigger the network under management, the cheaper per node.||Expensive when you need multiple servers, SQL Databases and additional pollers.|
|Full onboarding provided by Opmantek UTOPIA||Onboarding only available via 3rd party|
|Flexible and extensible by user using plugins and abstraction, so new devices, new API’s and more can be supported.||Very tight and narrow on what you can extend yourself.|
