We use it to keep our virtual landscape balanced and bottleneck free. When we enabled automatic guest balancing within Turbonomic, our complaints about slow VM's dropped over 90%.
They need an updated UI - perhaps HTML5? The dashboard could use a cosmetic update.
No, it deployed and worked flawlessly.
No, it's there whenever we need to login.
We've had a few issues upgrading and getting things working the way would we like, but Turbonomic has been very supportive to allocate knowledgeable resources to address them quickly.
Great. Turbonomic knows what it can do - and what it can't.
We used built in tools to try and balance workloads - it wasn't as good.
Initial setup is fairly straightforward. We deployed a virtual machine - configured it to our vCenters - and that was pretty much it.
We did the intial deployment in house - we've had Turbonomic onsite to help us tune the product to our specifications.
The ROI has been unquantifiable. The tools within the product have been great for our administrative team. I recommend the product highly.
Pricing has changed considerably since we purchased the product several years ago.
If you need a product that can automate workload balancing, capacity planning, reporting of resource use - Turbonomic is a fantastic choice.
