PROS: New hardware devices are ready to be monitored in seconds. Management of hundreds of hardware devices such as PDUs and sensors lost its complexity. PowerIQ superseded our Nagios Installation for all hardware-related devices. It becomes more and more our primary trap host.
CONS: Compared to PowerIQ setup of dcTrack is complex. Integration of PowerIQ and dcTrack could be easier to use. (License) Price for integration of USVs into PowerIQ is definitely too high, as a result we do not monitor our several USVs via PowerIQ.
PROS: Easy to use GUI. Software works fast. Good support.
CONS: Analytics and reports modules are a bit basic.
PROS: The asset list makes importing, exporting and editing what is in my data centre easy and intuitive. Great to export a complete list of what we have to whatever department needs it.
CONS: I would love a desktop version of this software, I feel it doesn't get enough of my systems resources when I use my web browser.
PROS: I have been working with Sunbird Products for many years. Started with PowerIQ 11 years ago and recently migrated from Aperture to dcTrack. Starting with PowerIQ I have to say I love the Buffered Data Retrieval feature that provides a min, avg and max reading from a timestamp sample you define. This has proven to be very useful data. PowerIQ also has a Sensors Tab that I'm happy to say I submitted the NFR for. This tab allows users to easily manage their Temperature Sensors, providing the ability to utilize Global or Local Thresholds. Recently the addition of Inlets and Circuit Breakers have been added to this Tab. dcTrack has a lot of great features but the best feature by far is the Auto Power Budget Feature. This too I worked with Sunbird to create. It provides Deployment and Facilities Engineers with a Potential Power Load that is based off of Trend Policies defined by the Users. In my opinion it provides the most realistic power consumption from your devices on the Market. If you have not seen this in action you should contact Sunbird for a Demonstration right away. As it pertains to Support, Sunbird is remarkable! They respond to all Tickets in a timely manner and work hard to resolve them.
CONS: With all the great features Sunbird provides, the one thing I have an issue with is all the bugs we find after a new version is released. Although they are quick to resolve them there are far too many. I would like to see them beef up their Quality Assurance Program.
