Rodney Barnhardt says in a Turbonomic review
Server\Storage Administrator at a manufacturing company with 501-1,000 employees
When you log in to Turbonomics, I find the Assure Service Performance that appears on the dashboard the most useful item. This option shows virtual machines that may need additional memory, CPU, or to be migrated to other storage to ensure performance. The product can be configured to do all of this automatically, but I like have more control of the changes. Plus, the way we have our storage configured, it is best that one of the admins selects which data store a machine is migrated to. I also like the reporting feature and have several of them set to automatically generate and email to me at the end of the month. One in particular shows snapshots that are still on the virtual machines. This prevents forgotten snapshots from existing for weeks, months, or even years. View full review »

Senior Systems Administrator at Privia Health
The ability to see VM-level IOPS data without the use of an agent is the most valuable feature in my opinion. Some of the monitoring capabilities, including Hyper-V CSV Free Space (%) monitoring and disk latency/read/write speeds come in handy, as well. Also, the Chargeback and Showback features are a nice touch. The dashboards are pretty nifty if you're looking for a quick overview of different information as they are all customizable. The Capacity Planner and VM Sprawl information can also come in handy when used properly. View full review »

The most valuables features are the collection of assets, security, and configuration data settings from each networked virtual environment in the system. This is very key to our decision making.

Senior Director of IT at a K-12 educational company or school with 51-200 employees
Its ability to scale up and down on demand allows for maximum cost efficiency. By dynamically analyzing our loads, the product can sense if resources need to be adjusted. It can also tell if another configuration of the same power would be cheaper in another region. View full review »

CTO at NHS Connecting for Health
The most valuable feature is the insight into how our infrastructure is actually working and the kind of performance that when users say there is an issue, it gives some insight into finding out what's going wrong with it. It's because we have it mainly based on our production units. I absolutely think this solution is intuitive and user-friendly. My team spun it up, we've got it through our ELA agreement and it was up and working in a matter of hours. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the ability to monitor our compute and that it tells us when we must buy new storage or a new host. It finds out what the issue is with big VMs. It is user-friendly. All VMware products are. View full review »
Group Manager at Wargaming
The most valuable feature is how our metrics interact with each other. You can find what objects are needed and get all of the information about an object: How it works with the storage, CPUs, memory, and you can get an easy way to find the solution during troubleshooting. It is intuitive and user-friendly starting from the latest versions, especially with version 6.5. Previously, we had some issues with the stability with such obligations but now it's useful and stable. View full review »

IT Infrastructure Manager at SMC USA
The most valuable feature would be the ability to plug into the data feeds that we have and pull information from physical hardware as well as the virtual layer. The best feature is the visualization of what's going on, so we can take a very quick look and see if there are any issues that stand out. In terms of being intuitive and user-friendly, this solution is getting better. When we first installed it they had upgraded a few times, and just the overall layout is better and easier to manage. It's easy to learn, so once you get in there and start looking around, it is fairly intuitive to figure out what you want to do. View full review »
IT Consultant at Sureskills
The most valuable features would be that it gives us a breakdown on the ESX host and then the virtual machines themselves. Also, with some of the add-ons that they provide with vROps you can start to see if there are any issues with things like Exchange Infrastructure or SQL add-ons, etc. It's useful to get from the hardware perspective to the virtual machine down to the actual application that's running on those VMs themselves. I do find this solution to be intuitive and user-friendly. You could set vROps up in an hour and start to get some statistics from it. It's a very simple tool to use. View full review »
Senior System Engineer at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable feature is the feature that alerts you when you have any issues or when you may face any upcoming issues. It can alert you within the day or two days before. It can also help you if you want to scale your environment. It will give you a scalable plan to scale your storage or the compute nodes. You can give it the percentage you want to scale it and it will guide you to have the resources for that. Usually, we use it for reporting when the management's asking us, without any technical output, they want to know what we have in the data center in our virtualization environment. We can just send the reports over the vRealize Operations, and it will tell how much we consume in our environment. It is user-friendly. As it's a management product, you usually don't have downtime. It will not impact anything. View full review »

The resource reclamation is the most valuable feature. We've had issues with our sandbox environment, and reclaiming these resources.
