Overall Satisfaction with VMTurbo Operations Manager

It is used to monitor our production VM infrastructure. It helps us distribute resources to all the VMs automatically, and that has saved a lot of manual work. It also provides great trend reporting so that we have objective data for future upgrades.
  • The DRS is much better than the built in one from VMware.
  • The auto moves of VMs are very efficient.
  • The efficiency reporting is a great feature.
  • The GUI needs to be refreshed. it looks old compared to VCOPS.
  • The alerting seems to be a bit limited. It would be good to have direct alerting to emails for high VM metrics.
  • We were able to delay purchasing new servers based on the info we received from VMTurbo, and instead just purchase additional memory.
It has simplified the way that we migrate machines, and it allows for high visibility of the VM infrastructure.
It was much easier to set up than VCOPS. VCOPS required 1 month for the trending to work. VMTurbo just needed a week.
For 100% virtualized environments, it's a must.
