Previous Solutions

VCOPS by vmware. Switched because Vmturbo was able to give us the reporting, planning, and migrations more easily and at a huge savings.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was straightforward. You deploy an appliance, give it the normal basic configs (IP, Subnet, Name) then wait a few hours and you start having data to act on.

Implementation Team

In-house.

ROI

ROI was 3 months. Could have been less if we would have acted on the recommendations earlier.

Other Solutions Considered

VCOPS, Veeam, Solarwinds.

Other Advice

Test the product give it a few days try it. You will see that it is well worth the investment.

If you need to keep history and other things when deploying because of issues there is a URL that will allow you to create a Full Backup of the appliance which includes this data and then you can restore it also after deployment. Go to - http://appliance name or IP/update.html. Log in with Administrator credentials and hold down the CTRL key when clicking the Authenticate button. This will bring up the Expert Mode features and one is "Full Backup" which is EVERYTHING. You can then use the same URL and login method for the redeployed appliance to restore.

The VMTurbo Operation Manager is a great added value to our company. It enables you not only to monitor your virtual environment but also automate proposed adjustments to the environment. We have been using this product for about 2 years now and we think it rocks. Its like having 2 extra hands and a companion looking over your shoulder. Saves me a lot of time!
