It's really good if your infrastructure services is all in AWS, that means everything could be audited and monitored using AWS config. You also can create alarms to notify you or your team about any changes on your AWS resources which is very useful to prevent abuse if you have a fairly large team. It's also very useful whenever some third party wants to audit your AWS resources, if you have a fairly comprehensive AWS config configured, the auditing process will be easy since they only need to look at your AWS config setup.

Turbonomic IBM has been great in managing the utilization of our virtual machine with the operations manager feature. It's also incredible in the optimization of cloud storage for data retrieval by improving performance. With Turbonomic we have a better understanding of our virtual machines infrastructure. I however admit that wrapping your head around it is a complex journey but with more training you become experts.

  • Presentation is nice. Its easy to understand what your looking at and the data that is being presented to you.
  • Properly identify resource utilization and recommendations for action on how VMs can be improved and resources can be better utilized.
  • It was also able to tell us the same information and analysis for cloud resources. I was not expecting that.
Chris Saenz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AWS Config

  • It's only AWS, no third party.
  • Not the most intuitive interface, but with a little getting used to it is OK.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Turbonomic

  • It would be nice if the UI included a break-down of features that are both licensed as well as un-licensed. That way, you could not only see what you have, but what you don't.
  • The right-sizing recommendations are great, but very little info is given about why the recommendation is being made. More info would not only increase understanding, but would also help drive decision-making.

We are certainly happy with Turbonomic as a whole and have invested quite a bit of time and effort into learning the ins and outs of the product. We have our reporting setup the way we want it and have gained definite value from these features. I will say though that many products nowadays are offering more native monitoring, reporting, and alerting features which may eventually steer us away from this product

Excellent approach to larger VM organizational management. They have an very clean integrated dashboard that allows us to see everything in our environment and what that is doing in real-time. It works on multiple hyper-visors really well and integrates capacity planning on my local site as well as my cloud locations.

Would rate lower for other workloads but for AWS workloads its simple to set up, cost effective and customisable. Primary use case is compliance from a governance perspective.

It allocates resources among applications by showing more on the cost breakdown by cloud service, with metrics on cloud provider information like Azure Management, Identity, Networking, Storage with costs per day, and total services costs. This then could facilitate and show the corresponding actions thereafter upon scaling.

When I contact support I get a quick response and they are able to solve my problem quickly. I also get a sense that they want to make sure that we are getting value from the product and walk me through whatever steps are needed to accomplish my goals.

Alex (from VMTurbo) has worked with the product for years and helped develop the product. He was very knowledgeable and was able to provide our support team with details knowledge on how to get our deployment configured correctly as well as help with another VMTurbo POC within another customers environment.

After buying VMTurbo Operations Manager, I was invited to an online user training event. I felt this training was effective and dug just deep enough to be informative yet still keep my attention. Additionally, the webinar was free.

The implementation was very simple. Just upload an OVA file and power on the VM. Once it comes up enter some networking information and you can then access the web interface. From there, just begin configuring the system for your environment by adding you license and the various virtual environments and storage through the inventory tab

Alternatives Considered

AWS Config

I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

The problem we had with products like vCOPS, is that the environment should be in a healthy position when implementing them. If placed into an under-performing environment, it assumes and learns off that state being the norm, rather than making a recommendation, then measuring the changes prior to making another.

Return on Investment

AWS Config

  • A "Big Fish" company that is more concerned about the security of their data came aboard with us more easily since they trust us with the AWS config setup
  • Less time to debug or finding out issue on infrastructure whenever it happens
  • Easy and fast to roll back whenever changes that caused issues happen

  • No negative impacts. The positive impacts it has had, is that we reduced our compute capex requirements by 150K. Merely using Turbonomic's for evaluating how much compute we would truly need during our refresh cycle helped drive our business decision to purchase Turbonomic.
