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

Pros
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.

Vmware always gives us the best support. They are friendly to talk to and they understand the real impact of what's happening. They are trying to get into the issue as one of your team. They also fit into your working hours to solve your issues.The reporting is a fantastic tool. It's a great tool for generating reports on different things, and for historically looking at performance metrics to help solve performance problems in an application stack.This solution is most definitely scalable. We've already gone back to the drawing board and specifically designed it from the ground up, to be scalable with the size of our environment moving forward.We do not have any problems with the product. It solves our problems. We now know if something is on the console and if there really is a problem. Before this, we had a lot of false positives. It digs into the problems and then at the end it just drops it.This solution has improved my organization by claiming back resources that have been wasted on applications or on servers that just didn't need them. Having a tool that shows that information on a pretty regular basis has been very helpful.It is stable. I don't have any problems with this product and upgrades are very easy because it's just click two buttons and next, next, next, finish.The most valuable feature would be the ability to plug into the data feeds that we have and pull information from physical hardware as well as the virtual layer. The best feature is the visualization of what's going on, so we can take a very quick look and see if there are any issues that stand out.It has reduced the time it takes to troubleshoot issues. We have customers trying to pinpoint and isolate issues using vROps. The information it provides helps them to pinpoint the issue a lot faster and resolve anything a lot quicker as well. They have a lot less downtime.

Cons
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.

They can change the interface for the 6.7 vSphere that would make it more simple and more friendly. I think changing the interface of the operations manager would be good. It's friendly to use right now but it would simplify it more.The whole interface is like an information overload, it just bombards me with messages, warnings, and alerts. When I follow through on the majority of these messages, I realize that I'm really just wasting time because they're not really real problems.With our environment right now, stability is the one sticking point. There hasn't been a great deal of handholding in between the different versions, so we've run into problems with there being what I would call "more than just the average change between versions" and it's caused a loss of data for us in the past.Technical support is good, once you pass the first level.I know that they talk a lot about AI and a sort of forecasting ahead of time. It's a good application, but it has to wait for a certain period of time to actually do an analysis. If it would give you that ahead of time, or even forecasting, it would be really improved.When you are at your lowest, support is pretty bad. They ask you dumb questions but when you come to second and upper service desk, it is much easier and much better to talk to and resolve the issue.As they're able to add in more vendors for hardware to be able to pull information from different firewalls, switches, or other vendors, I would like to see where we can get more of a complete view of what's going on in the network. That would make this solution better.The integration points can use improvement. We currently use a lot of third-party management packs to get insights for SQL, HP or Dell EMC. If we could have more integration built in as a standard feature that would make it slightly better.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

We did an enterprise license agreement with our VMware partner and put this in our bundle. We tried it and loved it, so we use it now.I have reduced the time to troubleshoot for my customers.We would like to build custom dashboards in the standard license. Right now, this is available in the enterprise license, not the standard license.We have seen good ROI results. It has made our lives easier.Our budgets are always tight. We would like to have more features at lower licensing levels for easier access to them.We have seen huge ROI. It has certainly reduced troubleshooting.If the VMs were trimmed, then we wouldn't have to buy as much software/hardware, and this means less licenses. While most of it is VMware licenses, which are relatively cheap, there are SQL licenses for Microsoft, and this is where we could start saving a lot of money.The solution has helped to reduce the time to troubleshoot issues.
