CloudCheckr

CloudCheckr is fantastic for those that are purely in the Cloud as it provides everything you need under one roof for a comprehensive configuration and usage monitoring tool. It has SysLog capabilities though so you can farm out the alerts into a SIEM or other log management system, so hybrid environments could also benefit from its use.

We use [Turbonomic] to optimize our Openshift environment. We are seeing that the data captured could also be used for better predictions of how to manage the ecosystem. One of the key reasons to use containers is to pack the hardware as much as possible. [Turbonomic] helps us do that. We have seen the same use case apply in the VM context.

Pros

CloudCheckr

  • Detailed Best Practices. It's important to align your cloud to industry best practices for security and cost—it just performs better if it's used the way it's meant to be used. AWS is very flexible, and that's great when you have special requirements, but you've got to at least know when you're using something in a non-standard way so you can think through the implications.
  • Cost Reduction. Some recommendations are almost impossible to make at least for our setup, but many, many others are easy. We only have to log into CloudCheckr every few months and make a few changes for it to more than pay for itself.
  • Right-Sizing. This is related to the other points, but for some reason is separate from their cost module. The metrics it's able to pull only tell half the story, so it's good to verify it's sizing recommendations before making changes. But it does show you what instances to focus on first, and even if you choose a slightly different size to move it to, it does clearly indicate it's current size isn't appropriate. And this works both ways, if the size is too big, you can save some cash by making it smaller, but if it's too small, you want to be sure to scale up before you run into performance problems.

  • 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.

Cons

CloudCheckr

  • CloudCheckr features have a tendency to break without warning. Functionality in place for months could suddenly stop working.
  • CloudCheckr support often delays work on support tickets for fixing broken application functionality.
  • The CloudCheckr platform and documentation website often crash or experience performance degradation.
  • CloudCheckr cost reporting is often impacted by faulty code or broken report functionality. This can contribute to a low level of confidence in CloudCheckr's ability to deliver accurate cost reporting.

  • 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.

Overall, CloudCheckr covers all our AWS monitoring needs and great integration through SysLog into our SIEM to capture alerts for investigation. The reports are great and allow for an easy daily review. Small improvements could be made to the interface and better filtering in places would be good. Great product and the price is fair.

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

CloudCheckr

There are a few products out there that'll do an aspect or two of what CloudCheckr does, but I honestly couldn't find anything nearly as comprehensive as CloudCheckr.
John Grosjean | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

CloudCheckr

  • CloudCheckr has allowed us to increase resell margins as an MSP.
  • CloudCheckr has made us aware of cost savings opportunities that exceed the price of the platform itself.
  • CloudCheckr has given us additional visibility that has allowed us to manage and understand cloud computing costs.

  • 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.
