Overall Satisfaction with Turbonomic, an IBM Company

Turbonomic is used as an automation utility for VMware vSphere compute migrations as well as hardware capacity planning. It also allows us to monitor performance and report to service owners when experiencing pain-points or bottlenecks.
  • Detailed workload analysis
  • Powerful policy management
  • Future planning tools
  • Product update/upgrades
  • Policy creation/modification
  • Quite often workload analysis from Turbonomic reinforces resource recommendations to end users (e.g.; over-provisioned CPU/memory/storage, etc.)
  • Workload automation, specifically VM compute, allows hosts to be balanced for CPU and memory most efficiently based on Turbonomic analysis.

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.
