The open alternative to the ITOM "Big four"

Nowadays, two main types of solutions are available on the NMS market for medium to very large sites. Proprietary solutions of which the best known are marketed by the "Big Four" (IBM, CA Technologies, BMC Software et HP). These solutions can sometimes be a little cumbersome and require significant investments while not always offering the agility and customization that can be expected from an NMS.

Faced with these imposing solutions, there are many open source alternatives. These solutions, which are generally of very good quality, are much more agile and customizable. However, they often sin by different aspects. The main flaws are their difficulty in scaling and managing highly distributed environments. Moreover, often designed by developers far away from the concerns of operators, they lack "operational" features and it is often  necessary to combine several of them to achieve the expected result, with all the maintenance difficulties over time that this represents.

Vigilo NMS is positioned between these two types of applications. Based on open source reference modules, Vigilo NMS offers powerful and proven features. Based on those various basic components, the Vigilo NMS team has developed a complete performance monitoring solution whose objective is to compete with the solutions of major publishers. Vigilo NMS offers the power of open source and the completeness of the best NMS. Finally, in a market dominated by very monolithic and poorly customizable solutions, Vigilo NMS stands out for its ability to adapt and integrate into diverse environments. It is the ideal solution for CIOs looking for a complete and powerful tool that will adapt to their needs.*
