After implementation and turning on the VMTurbo DRS in automated mode we recognized better and balanced performance.


What is most valuable?

  • After implementation and turning on the VMTurbo DRS in automated mode we recognized better and balanced performance on hosts and VM's.
  • We use the reports and reclaimed a lot of wasted storage.

How has it helped my organization?

There are fewer tickets about VM performance problems.

For how long have I used the solution?

3 Years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No. It comes as a virtual appliance which is installed and configured quickly. The update process to a newer version or patch level is simple.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Excellent

Technical Support:

The support team at VMTurbo is so quick in responding. I always get an answer to my questions and they always get me the support I need when I need it. I’ve been very impressed.

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

We use other Monitoring Tools but not with these automation features.

How was the initial setup?

It comes as a virtual appliance which is installed and configured (IP Settings / vCenter connection) quickly. Around half an hour and you are ready to use it. Some hours later the first recommendations come up.

What about the implementation team?

In-house

What other advice do I have?

Another aspect of being a VMTurbo customer is being a member of the Green Circle Community, an online community for innovators, virtualization experts and forward thinking IT professionals who engage with one another and share their experiences.

I’ve been involved since the beginning of the Green Circle,and it’s been such a great platform to engage with and help others.

The community is so diverse, and you know that what you read is true.

We are in the process of setting up an evaluation and I cannot wait. Going to use the Planning module to forecast some new VMs. Want to test the DRS capabilities also. Green Circle is a great community and source for information.
