  • General and detailed view on VM utilization. Easy to understand, due to smart and very usable icons and graphics. Layout and dashboards are easy to adjust.
  • Recommendations on better utilization proved helpful. Being a little bit anxious at first we tried some small actions and learned fast that VMTurbo Operations Manager is a smart tool which is absolutely reliable.
  • We are not experts on this tool, but you can easily start and grow into it.
  • Better and more technically detailed Information on all monitors would be appreciated.
  • Training sessions on a more frequent basis would be fine.

  • Was a good product
  • [In my opinion,] Old classic version was much better
  • No further comment
  • [In my experience,] The support has gone downhill.
  • [I feel,] The new version still has so many issues.
  • The mitigation of the log4j vulnerability continues to be a pain.

  • Right sizing recommendations based on actual utilization with historic analysis.
  • Automation of recommended actions. No complex programing required.
  • Clear insight into projected usage metrics post recommended change implementation.
  • Lacks custom role based permissions. Only allows assigning permissions based on specific built in roles.
  • Business intelligence reporting could be better. No Power BI integration.
  • Grafana integration available but requires advanced experience.

  • Monitoring
  • Troubleshooting
  • Capacity planning
  • Reporting
  • Reporting could get better. Maybe talk with customers to find what better out-of-the-box reports could be added.
  • Capacity planning is a little tough to navigate sometimes. Sometimes you have to be creative to get the answer you want.
  • Maybe more info from the networking aspect. Something around being able to dive deeper in the switches that are attached to Turbonomic.

  • In fully automated mode, the virtual machine may automatically have additional memory or processors added, be migrated between host or storage, or even suspended if they system is deemed as idle. If there is hesitation around allowing a product to fully control the virtual environment, then a mix of partial automation and recommendation may be the desired configuration. As an example, the configuration may allow for an automated relocation of virtual machines onto different host, but only recommend that it be migrated from one datastore to another one. This give an administrator who is intimately familiar with the environment some control over the placement of resources.
  • Using the Supply Chain tool, an individual virtual machine can be analyzed to see more details on the issue with that particular system. When that machine is selected, utilization panel can be adjust to only show the impact on memory, CPU, storage, etc. There are also details given on where in each resource falls within their utilization index, and at what level Turbonomic has determined the optimal usage should be based on the recommended changes to the environment.
  • Virtual environments have made planning for resources rather difficult over the years. Many times newly added machines may take up more resources than previously estimated, causing the need to either halt projects or unexpectedly purchase additional hardware for the host environment. VMTurbo has a planning feature to better aid in determining how many new virtual machines can be added to the environment. This is done via a “template catalog” which is used for testing the environment. While there are some pre-canned system options such as small, medium, and large, there is also the ability to build a custom template that may be a standard for your environment. Once the template is built, the planning tool will tell you how many more virtual machines can be added to the existing environment, the projection option can be enabled and the furthest date out selected. When the report is complete, the future resource requirements will be displayed. This allows for better budgetary planning within the coming year to ensure the systems will perform to the expectations of the business.
  • They have expanded the capabilities of the product to now include support for virtual machines running in cloud service providers. This provides a "single pane of glass" view into all of the virtual machines, and their performance, for an organization. Without it, there would be a need to log into various portals to look and analyze performance across the environment.
  • They have moved their model from an per CPU pricing model to a per virtual machine subscription model if you want to be able to move to the latest and greatest versions. With many organizations moving to cloud, this is understandable, one of the primary reasons for the original purchase was to move off of vCOPs per virtual machine licensing model to a straight per CPU model. This prevented the need for budgeting due to increasing numbers of virtual machines throughout the year.
  • The newest models do not always include monitoring of all types of storage arrays. We moved to a DellEMC Unity about 5 years ago, and as of our last renewal, they still did not have that as a supported array for the storage module. Therefore, we dropped the licensing for this module.

  • There is no replacement for the planning tool offered in VMTurbo Operations Manager. I know how much growth my current environment can support and can model anticipated growth to budget future hardware purchases.
  • The ease of deploying and upgrading VMTurbo Operations Manager.
  • The sizing recommendations are helpful.
  • The storage waste report is helpful in identifying orphaned files that are using disk capacity.
  • The Wasted Storage report is helpful but requires additional work to go remove the files that are reported. It seems like this process could be simplified to make it easier to execute actions to free that space.
  • The interface can take some time to learn and understand. Some dashboards make sense right away, others take time and further research to understand.

  • Visually shows the health of my virtual environment
  • Easy to set automation within the environment
  • Ease of use and familiarity
  • Training sessions involve a marketing feel at the beginning
  • The Supply and Demand tab is not only confusing but does not really apply to our infrastructure
  • The Supply Chain tab is also a bit confusing and just looks nice

  • Right-size container.
  • Capacity planning through proper resource utilization.
  • Feed resource consumption to finance system.
  • Better usage of consumption stats to find a consistent costing model - containers can be quite dynamic.
  • Better understanding of CPU throttling impact on the whole application stack.

  • 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.
  • Cost; the licensing was simply too expensive for us to make any use of.

  • Capacity Management
  • Rightsizing
  • In an environment with a lot of contention, Turbonomic moves VMs around more than you may like.
  • If you don't want to use it to suspend hosts, be sure to disable it... Or it'll evacuate hosts on you.

  • We found DRS as a main strength for Turbonomic.
  • Turbonomic has a sandbox feature which can be used to simulate the impact a particular change in the environment may cause.
  • Turbonomic also does storage VMotion.
  • Turbonomic's new release manages workloads in all three scenarios where your environment is either in the cloud, on-prem or hybrid.
  • Would like to see more detailed logs.
  • GUI is not straightforward and might be hard to understand for beginners.
  • Might be a little complicated to set up the tool to function as you would need it to without professional services help.

  • Telling us when VMs are either over or under provisioned by looking at how they are actually used.
  • Telling us when hosts require upgrading.
  • Telling us when VMs need moving to hit our performance targets.
  • Setting up automation does seem tricky.
  • Dashboard refresh does not always seem to work automatically.
