Overall Satisfaction with Turbonomic, an IBM Company

Turbonomic provides operational excellence providing insight into workload consumption driving cost-optimal decisions without starving compute resources required to meet application requirements. Actions are implemented through automated orchestration removing the need to tie up critical engineer hours that would otherwise be taxed with manually scaling up or down resources. Changes to workloads are automated after hours as a turnkey execution. Optimization actions are tracked to calculate ongoing ROI for justification. Turbonomic removes the need to have specialized skilled engineers review ingested metric data to develop cost optimization configurations in an ever changing fluid public cloud paradigm. Turbonomic provides and acts on designs based on actual utilization metrics and scales accordingly with cost in mind removing the second guessing as to which compute sku is most optimal cost prohibited choice. Turbonomic takes the guess work out of resource allocation.
  • 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.
  • Year over year the actions taken by Turbonomic pays for itself easily justifying ROI.
  • The data provided by Turobnomic helps ease concerns that would otherwise be a tipping point of contention between application or development teams.
  • Turobnomic has assisted in reducing performance impacts while in some cases reducing cost. We've identified a workload performing poorly, acted on the recommendation provided by Turbo and the net cost was a reduction. Double win!

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.
