I like how fast and undisrupted during the deployment of our agents on our VM farms. Which enhanced the first data within a few days. Turbonomic automates our tasks which were time-consuming because we had to perform them manually. The support team is excellent, user-friendly, and fully supportive. I am fully satisfied and happy to work with this tool.

Since we hugely established our business on the process which is highly dependent on the network, the monitoring of the network continuously is incredibly needed to take the actions on time. The dashboards and reporting opportunities the software provides turn the software into an amazing tool for our product in the market, and it gives value to our product.

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.

Turbonomic is best suited for diversified server cost optimization. For example, if you have different instances of t1, t2, m5. Turbonomic software will help you to narrow down the problematic areas and improve cost optimization by finding the optimal use of RAM and CPU

VMturbo is designed to automate the execution of these tasks to create a specific recommendation to modify or resize or change the dimensions and maintain a healthy environment for VM positioning. If you want a system that generates search and action alarms, VMTurbo Operating Manager is not a tool for you. Similarly, if you want reporting and a very granular performance metric, you can have more suitable tools for that job.

My company has been using Turbonomic to manage our VMware environment for six years from workload automation to analysis and also planning for new hardware. It also provides a unique insight into workload performance monitoring such as CPU and memory usage and allows us to accurately report these statistics to end-users when they experience performance issues.

Turbonomic helps to bring AIOps in the mix where a lot of applications may not have that embedded with Network Monitoring as well. In addition, Turobonomic helps with fast deployment and is beneficial in supporting AWS and Azure applications especially. Less appropriate if the goal is just to specialize only in reporting. The platform has that but it is not a visualization platform.

Turbo is extremely well suited for companies that are looking to utilize the cloud in that it can help you plan and expect what your cost will be. It is also well suited for companies that already leverage the cloud in helping expose potential risk, minimize cost, and organize resources.

This is [a] great tool that leads to [the] great achievement of any organization by monitoring performance closely. All applications in our company are checked regularly to meet the production targets and streamline the company programs. I have [a] great [belief] in this tool for efficiency and clear work infrastructure development. It organizes resources to be used in the right places and keeps all records of each company asset.

Public cloud environments where cost optimization is paramount Turbonomic provides clear to understand recommends ensuring workloads have the resource required without breaking the bank. Turbonomic is not only a cost optimization tool but a performance optimization swiss army knife ensuring that workloads are not starved preventing performance impacts due to resource contention or starvation. Turbonomic provides peace of mind avoiding the concern that workloads are over-provisioned. Turbonomic drives processes based on decisions generated through its AI-driven analysis. If you want to take custom acts or recommendations then you'll need to develop complex in-house code or use a different automation tool that you feed in decisions to be implemented.

I have mainly used Turbonomic to capacity plan for our next hardware refresh or to see how to decrease our footprint by consolidating environments. Also, I have used it to troubleshoot some resource issues we had in a couple of our environments. Also, I have used the reporting to make the environments more efficient. This included right-sizing certain VMs to not waste resources. As of right now, I don't know how well it is for switches. We have our Cisco UCS switches attached but feels the info provided is not much help in the grand scheme of things.

Turbonomic has their "Green Circle Community" that can be very helpful. It allows interaction between users of the product from all over the world. This includes not only Q&A on feature or functions, but also the ability to share custom reports. There are also points awarded that can be exchanged for various prizes or gifts. It is definitely set up to encourage the user community to participate.

VMTurbo Operations Manager is designed to sit in the environment and make specific recommendations on sizing or VM placement, or even automate the execution of those actions to maintain a healthy environment. If you want a system that generates alarms that you then research and take action upon, VMTurbo Operations Manger is not the tool for you. Similarly if you want very granular performance reporting and metrics, there may be other tools more suited to that task. With the sizing and recommendations in VMTurbo Operations Manager, I do not have to spend as much time reviewing reports and making guesses at how best to tune the environment; VMTurbo Operations Manager gives me those recommendations.

Why I use Turbonomic...

I believe the software is well suited for any virtual environment because it helps with managing, automating, and ensuring optimal resource allocation and uptime. Areas of particular interest for me are the host, storage, and resource monitoring. I have come to rely on its reliability in telling me what is going on in my environment. I have used other software vendor products similar to this but always found them to be unreliable. If vSphere says I have a VM powered off...I expect my monitoring software to see the VM powered off... Turbonomic has been consistent and accurate thus far.

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.

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.

It handles the workload automation very well. It keeps my VMware Clusters well balanced and we have fewer issues than in the past. The rightsizing reports are handy, once you make the change so it doesn't try to step you down 1 cpu/gb ram at a time (dropping from 16gb to 8gb, at 1gb per change means 8 changes/reboots. We didn't want that.)

Turbonomic is very well suited for anyone who hosts their environment either on cloud, on-prem or is hybrid. It handles workloads very well and optimises your environment regardless to prevent any slowness. I have seen our VMs and ESXs performing better and balanced well after implementing Turbonomic.

The dashboards are great. It allows us to see immediately the status of our whole VMware estate and how well it is operating. We can spot immediately if there are any issues and deal with them. It also emails us if it spots something critical.
