Overall Satisfaction with Turbonomic (formerly VMTurbo)

It is also being utilized to automatically vmotion servers across ESXi hosts for load balancing. It is only being used by our Infrastructure team.
- It provides comprehensive historical data.
- Great tool to vmotion VMs based on your configured specifications.
- It allows you to model possible increase or decrease of resources and see what the impact would be to your environment.
- So far I have not encountered functionality that I would need and it's not implemented.
- It allows us to quickly and efficiently identify possible problem sources.

Quick Initial Response
We needed additional guidance when we were trying to spec out our system for a possible upgrade and they jumped on the phone with us right away to walk us through all of the analysis options available in the product, they helped us create a couple of test scenarios and followed up a couple of times after the support call to make sure everything had worked out as expected.
