One of the most popular comparisons on our site is Turbonomic vs vRealize Operations (vROps). One user says about Turbonomic, " The biggest value I'm getting out of VMTurbo right now is the complete hands-off management of equalizing the usage in my data center."  Another user says about vROps, "With other products like vRA and Orchestrater, we can actually send that information to an automation platform for self-healing and for mediation. That makes it very, very powerful." In your experience, which is better and why? Thanks! --Rhea
Randy RigginsTurbonomic can auto right size disk, memory, and CPU. It will also move vm's based on host resource consumption. This is based on a policy setup by you the end user. Turbonomic reporting is not as good as vRops. vRops can make suggestions based on policy, but the automation comparison, Turbonomic wins. vRops, however can be integrated with vRA and Orchestrator to setup workflows. vRops has some good reporting tools for analysis and reports can be scheduled.
ScottYoungvRealize Operations is hands-down much better. The main reason is the analytics engine behind vROPS, coupled with the integrations into vRealize Automation (vRA) and vRealize Business for Cloud (vRBC), bring capabilities for cross-cloud management far exceeding those offered by Turbonomic. Turbonomic is solely banking on on-prem, in-datacenter workload placement, whereas vRealize Operations is about overall Intelligent Operations through “Self-Driving” Operational Capabilities. Of course, I’m heavily biased….. ;-)
