Overall Satisfaction with Turbonomic (formerly VMTurbo)

We are currently using Turbonomic to automate intelligent placement of workload across our virtual server environment.
  • Intelligent placement of workoad
  • Conservative VM right-sizing recommendations
  • Capacity planning reporting
  • UI needs improvement
  • Concept of workload migration between clusters (super-clusters) is not fully baked
  • Turbonomic has freed up operational cycles by helping automate intelligent workload placement on our virtual hosts.
vRealize is a decent product however it only makes placement decisions, it doesn't automate intelligent workload placement. It also, in my opinion, is way too aggressive in its VM resource right-sizing recommendations.
It is well suited for:

  • VM right-sizing
  • VM workload placement
  • Capacity planning
