We regularly use reports to show us IOPS stats, over/under utilized VMs, and wasted space on our datastores.
What is most valuable?
Turbonomic has tons of features that we use regularly from reports showing us simple IOPS stats, to showing over/under utilized VMs, and even wasted space on our datastores. We run a cloud for many customers 24/7 and we are not staffed 24/7 so this keeps metrics for what is going on while we sleep.
How has it helped my organization?
Simple vCenter performance charts will show you only latency on datastores and will not drill down to show VMs causing the trouble. Turbonomics will show the IOPS and which VM is causing it easy.
What needs improvement?
Reports take time to custom tweak.
For how long have I used the solution?
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
This is a simple appliance deployment so its almost as easy as it gets.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
How are customer service and technical support?
Service is fantastic and always willing to help us with questions regarding licensing and other features.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
We were looking at vCops originally and the prices would not even compare with nearly 0 compromise.
What other advice do I have?
I never regretted going with Turbonomic over vCops and would easily do it again.
