Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

I would definitely recommend CloudCenter due to its wide extensibility. I am able to extend and deploy our system in all four following ways; content integration, tool integration, platform integration, and most importantly cloud integration. Content extensibility allows deploying containers such as Docker, while tool integration allows me to integrate the most important security components such as HSM.

Large deployments (on-site and cloud) where resource utilization is hard to account for. VM Turbo can analyze what is happening in your datacenter and recommend or actually implement its suggestions for performance and resource management. It also claims to know about network and disk resources and how to put VMs in the proper resources to gain performance in network and disk. We didn't really try this, but is nice to know it has some ability to be aware of network and disk.If you have your datacenter resources under strict control, VMTurbo may not help all that much. Likewise, if your datacenter is fairly flat with no tiers of storage, compute, or network performance, or if there is simply more demand than can be met, than there is not much that VMTurbo can do. It can't create IO and CPU cycles out of thin air.

Pros

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

  • We are able to automate deployment which has been a strength to the geographical distribution of the enterprise.
  • We have been able to work with a wider variety of developer tools and haven't had to customize to fit CloudCenter.
  • It is easier for us to allocate space and allow users to take advantage of the system directly with a minimum of overhead.

  • SQL and Exchange analytics. Looking into these heavy workloads helps resolve performance issues and allows administrators to properly adjust thresholds and CPU/Memory settings to maximize their Virtual platforms.
  • Detailed recommendations. Having the details around what adjustments are needing to be made to a virtual machine is paramount in getting business owners to agree to the change. Without it - IT is merely bogged down in the sand.

Cons

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

  • Post-purchase support needs to be improved, it takes ages to solve a problem.
Nikola Marks | 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.

The product just works so well and nothing has caught up to it. We expected VRealize to catch VMTurbo over the course of the last 18 months and that we would use this product as a stop gap until vmturbo was there. That was not the case and we have determined it still has more functionality and it does things easier.

I have found the product to be very easy to work with and manage. Upgrades are performed through the web interface. This includes downloading the new file and applying the upgrade to the appliance. Overall, the interface and the various tabs are self explanatory. This was purchased as a replacement for vCenter Operations manager and it proven to have not only more functionality, but is easier to use and manage. The other advantage is that it works with multiple hypervisors as well as storage vendors making it a definite plus over other solutions when you have a heterogeneous environment

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.

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

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

We found that the cost advantages were greater by going with Cisco because of our present contracts and the materials and equipment we already had on hand. The reliability of the system, for us, outweighed any cost advantages we might have been realized by going with another provider. Certainly the service and support for the entire system is much better when handled by a single vendor with a good track record.

Turbonomic

We used to use Dell's Foglight solution. It was not reliable and had many issues keeping up with the changes within my virtual environment. Turbonomic not only keeps up with the changes but preemptively adjusts and makes changes on its own to alleviate resource strain. Definitely the best option we saw during our 'shopping around' phase for a solution.

Return on Investment

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

  • Improved visibility on the cloud components of the company backbone.
  • Less response time from server to employee which is good.
Nikola Marks | TrustRadius Reviewer

Turbonomic

  • Day two of having VMTurbo running, we were able to reduce our environment by removing 1/2 of the hosts in an existing cluster, whilst still accommodating more than N+2 redundancy (in the event of a failure while a host is down for maintenance)
