We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
TOSCA model allows modeling the application rather than the automation. It is a machine-readable representation of the application and its infrastructure, which can be used for other things too, not just for the orchestration (e.g. enterprise architecture big picture, who connects to whom).Cloudify provides the infrastructure-as-code, as well as operational action capabilities (orchestrated startups or upgrades, and more).Product has given us the ability to catch early scaling issues that many companies hit on with private clouds.Extensible internal functions and plugins. Can implement custom plugins to fit your scenario. Python based plugins.You can use only what you need. You can remove certain Cloudify functions from the framework to create a "minified" version of what you need. This might only consist of the messaging delivery system, and the orchestration functions.Valuable features are auto-scaling and load balancing.

The system automatically sizes and moves resources based on the needs of the applications.We have seen a 30% performance improvement overall.The biggest value I'm getting out of VMTurbo right now is the complete hands-off management of equalizing the usage in my data center.The most important feature to us is an objective measurement of VM headroom per cluster. In addition, the ability to check for the right-sizing of VMs.With over 2500 ESX VMs, including 1500+ XenDesktop VDI desktops, hosted over two datacentres and 80+ vSphere hosts, firefighting has become something of the past.We have VM placement in Automated mode and currently have all other metrics in Recommend mode.It became obvious to us that there was a lot more being offered in the product that we could leverage to ensure our VMware environment was running efficiently.The ability to monitor and automate both the right-sizing of VMs as well as to automate the vMotion of VMs across ESXi hosts.

Cons
Install of the product itself could be improved and I would like to see better event monitoring.Certainly the UI could use some intensive work, but nevertheless, overall, it’s a complete product with its 3.4 version and much better features are available with 4.0.Unlike the Docker environment, Cloudify takes time for configuration and its learning curve.

Enhanced executive reporting standard with the tool beyond the reports that can be created today. Something that can easily be used with upper management on a monthly or quarterly basis to show the impact to our environment.The one point is the reporting. We do have reports out of it, but they're not the level of graphical detail I would like.Remove the need for special in-house knowledge and development.Since the introduction of a HTML 5 based interface, our main - but minor - criticism of a less than intuitive operation managers' GUI would be the area of improvement.I like the detail I get in the old user interface and will miss some of that in the new interface when we perform our planned upgrade soon.The old interface was not the clearest UI in some areas, and could be quite intimidating when first using the tool.While the product is fairly intuitive and easy to use once you learn it, it can be quite daunting until you have undergone a bit of training.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Price is a big one. VMTurbo was very competitively priced.You should understand the cost of your physical servers and how much time and money you are spending year over year on expanding your virtual farm.What I can advise is to trial the product, taking advantage of the Turbonomic pre-sales implemention support and kickstart training.Licensing is per socket, so load up on the cores rather than a lot of lower core CPUs.We felt the pricing was very fair for the product. It is in no way prohibitive for larger deployments, unlike other similar product on the market.Contact the Turbonomic sales team, explain your needs and what you're looking to monitor. They will get a pre-sales SE on the phone and together work up a very accurate quote.
