Turbonomic Review

In addition to the core feature set, the planning tool has been invaluable to us.


What is most valuable?

Other than the core feature set, the planning tool has been invaluable to us.

How has it helped my organization?

VMTurbo Operations Manager has given myself and my staff more time to focus on other projects and tasks as well as improved overall performance of the virtual environment.

What needs improvement?

The UI could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this product for the past 11 months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

None at all, very smooth deployment and pretty easy to tune so far.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

None at all.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

None at all.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

10/10, everyone has been very helpful and even my pre-sales guys are very easy to reach and check up on my from time to time.

Technical Support:

10/10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We evaluated vCOPS but decided we received way more functionality and automation with VMTurbo.

How was the initial setup?

Very, straightforward setup by deploying the OVA template. You can slowly automate tasks once you’re comfortable with what its recommending.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented in-house.

What was our ROI?

Within 6 months to 1 year… (helped avoid the immediate need to replace some older test storage).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated vCOPS but decided we received way more functionality and automation with VMTurbo.

What other advice do I have?

Do the 30 day demo, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

I have to agree about the planning tool as that is what helped me sell the solution to our Management in November. We are now using it and planning VM additions takes all but 5-10 minutes versus the manual spreadsheet method of 4-5 days.
