What is most valuable?

  • Moving VMs
  • Storage moves in conjunction with DRS
  • The planning function
  • Rightsizing VMs

How has it helped my organization?

We used Turbonomic to plan our hardware refresh, and it was right on the money. Now, we are using it to plan VM moves to the cloud.

What needs improvement?

This is more of a feature request than a need for improvement. I would like to be a able to track growth over time by cluster and be able to define the clusters to use for enterprise summary. I would also like to be able to get an enterprise summary from the aggregator appliance.

For how long have I used the solution?

Six years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

If you can download a Virtual Desk Machine (VMDK) file and assign it an IP, you can deploy Turbonomic in minutes.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Turbonomic has been very stabile.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

None.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Turbonomic provides excellent customer service. They are very responsive.

Technical Support:

One of the best technical support groups out of all of our vendors. They are very responsive.

How was the initial setup?

Download OVF file, then configure the IP, enter your VC credentials, and boom, you are done. Just one virtual appliance.

What about the implementation team?

In-house.

What was our ROI?

12 months.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

vROPs.

What other advice do I have?

You should at least try this out. The install is simple and the product is intuitive. What other solution is capable of showing you an issue, recommending a solution, and making the necessary changes to resolve the issue?
