ControlUp

An environment where visibility of general performance metrics isn't currently done or is done with a system that is difficult to use (which was our case). An environment where resource allocation decisions need to be made (e.g. how much RAM and CPU to allocate to VM pools). An environment where a troubleshooting tool is needed (e.g. to answer the question, "Why is this person experiencing poor performance right now?")

Turbonomic has improved performance many times to correct issues before they become a major issue. Turbonomic has also saved us money because of it scaling/planning features. Even during the original POC of the application, Turbonomic saved us more money on new hardware purchases than the software itself cost to license. It was a no Brainer and we have never looked back about the purchase.

Pros

ControlUp

  • The triggers are very flexible and can be configured to alert on things from events in sessions to hardware failures. Script actions are what they sound like. They are scripts that can be created and run on demand or tied to a trigger. One example is that if a hard drive is low on space we have a script to clean up certain things on the drive.
  • Script actions are supported by the ControlUp community. Community members can submit scripts that are reviewed by ControlUp and approved. This means more script are added over time.
  • ControlUp support and sales support has been great. Our sales engineer is always willing to jump on and help us with configuration issues and standard support is quick to respond and are good at resolving issues.

  • 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

ControlUp

  • It seems that there is a gradual transition occurring from one interface (a local program) to another (Web). This creates confusion at times.
  • ScoutBees module has a problem with our version of Horizon, so we can't do a login test
  • The local program for ControlUp uses a lot of resources
  • The training session focus on very large environments, which we aren't. Might be good to offer SMB sessions separately.

  • 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.

      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.

      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

      ControlUp

      I feel all these products are good and have their strengths but for me it came down to two categories. How easy is it to find issues and cost. It seemed to me that the easiest to use is ControlUp and eG. Price broke down to ControlUp and SysTrack being lower than Goliath and eG.

      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

      ControlUp

      • It led us to make some quick and simple changes that reduced our logon times by 25%
      • We are better able to evaluate CPU and (especially) RAM utilization in our VDI pools (used for planning)

      • 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.
