Overall Satisfaction with VMTurbo Operations Manager

VMTurbo allows us to see a quick view of the state of our virtual environment. We use its automation for moving virtual machines between hosts and between datastores for best performance. We don't have to worry about a datastore filling up due to thin provisioned drives, because VMTurbo will move virtual machines to other datastores before this happens. In the past we have also used VMTurbo to migrate virtual servers from one SAN to another. We just had to set up a rule to tell VMTurbo which datastores the VMs should be on, and over the next day it moved them over for us. VMTurbo is a great product and it makes managing a virtual environment much easier and less time consuming.
  • Monitors full virtual environment and alerts with problems and suggests fixes.
  • Looks for changes that could be made to optimize virtual environment. Changes can also be set to be done automatically.
  • Easy to follow UI.
  • Policies could be a little easier to configure.
  • VMTurbo has has a positive impact on our business. It allows me to concentrate on other projects and systems, which in turn the company didn't need to hire more employees.
We use VMTurbo to automate vmotion for virtual servers from host to host and from datastore to datastore. Because of this, we don't have to watch the environment throughout the day and don't have to worry about a datastore filling up and halting servers.
We started with VMWare Operations Manager. At the time we were using it, it didn't offer automation. Also, the dashboard wasn't as easy to use as VMTurbo either. This is why we went with VMTurbo.
VMTurbo is a good fit for any company that wants their virtual environment to run optimally, without dedicating numerous employees to it.
