Turbonomic Review

We utilized the Plan View to understand our hardware requirements


What is most valuable?

  • Improving the overall efficiency of the dashboard.
  • Plan View
  • Environmental Health Chart

How has it helped my organization?

We utilized the Plan View to understand our hardware requirements. When we replaced our old hardware with the new hardware in our datacenters, we were able to more accurately predict our needs, then with the old rule of thumb method.

What needs improvement?

We have two Turbonomic sites set up and use an aggregator to provide an overview of them. The biggest suggestion that I could make is for the changes in the aggregator to be imported into the Turbonomic sites. Currently, we make the change at one site, then the second site keeps our environment on an equal basis.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have used Turbonomic for over two and a half years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No, there have never been any issues in deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Early on in our PoC, we encountered issues, where some of our VMGuests failed to have their information log correctly. That was a number of versions ago and we have not experienced the issue since.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The only issue we have had with scalability is that the sites are not integrated into the aggregator. We need to update each site individually and cannot export or import the changes, and need to do double duty to maintain a level playing field in multiple environments.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Excellent.

Technical Support:

Excellent.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did not have a previous solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

A vendor team who was excellent.

What other advice do I have?

Turbonomic has provided us an automagic optimization of our environment from an operational point of view. I am not sure if we could have as easily setup the same functionality from vROps or on such a granular level.
