AppDynamics

AppDynamics is well suited for environments where tolerance for latency is low. Identifying latency and where it is coming from early can make the difference in mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to resolve (MTTR).

Turbonomic

It REALLY helps identify performance trends, bottlenecks, etc. It's not super-great with "in the moment" type issues, as it provides near-real-time (within 10 minutes) metrics, not actual real-time metrics. It has definitely helped with ongoing issues, though.

Pros

  • Real time data on the performance of our environment via customized graphs.
  • Isolation of errors using the tool.

  • It gives me anywhere from a general overview of the entire virtual infrastructure, to specific hosts or VMs, all in one pane of glass, and with minimal navigation fuss.
  • The right-sizing recommendations are extremely helpful, as are the reports, in helping us fine-tune our environment so we can get the most out of it.
  • We have not had to contact support often, but when we have, they've been great. Very fast and knowledgeable.

Cons

  • It's pretty slow to learn all of the capabilities

  • Some of the prediction tools are quite complicated to configure. I think the process could be simplified however I'm sure some of the complexity is due to the thoroughness.

It is easy to initially configure and get it integrated. To fully utilize the tool, you need a better understanding of the system and how to configure.

VMTurbo has not caused any outages by not doing what we expect it to do.

Just this week we had an issue where security permissions we had done wrong were causing problems in VMTurbo Operations Manager. Despite this being our fault the service request was handled very quickly. In addition we are routinely contacted proactively to see if there is anything we need or they could do for us.

There is value to be had in just doing a "click install" and then just evaluating and following recommendations. However, that is nowhere near the benefit you will get from the very powerful custom reporting if someone is willing to take the time to master this platform that can be somewhat demanding at that level.

Alternatives Considered

Better capability set / there are more 3rd party integrations / appdynamics has a bigger profile

Unlike VMware Operations Manager, Turbonomic has the ability to monitor and manage other virtual environments. This provides the support team a central management point for each environment. It also provides planning capability for each one of these based on the average virtual machine. By creating a template for each environment, future planning can be group based and more accurate than the manual estimate previously used.

  • We have been able to save some virtual resources.
  • It has been time-consuming to try to use Turbonomic.
