What is most valuable?

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. VMTurbo distributes all of my VMs equally across all of my hosts. I don't ever have to think about when a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The big benefits for me is a lot of time savings. I don't have to care and feed for each individual VM, and make sure that the environment's balanced just the right way. Also, I'm able to see which of my applications are taking more cycles,... more»

What needs improvement?

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. One of the reasons we went with VMTurbo was because we wanted to replace vCOPS. We weren't getting the level of... more»

What do you think of Turbonomic?

Valuable Features The automation makes my life easier because I know my VMware clusters are balanced across all my hosts. • Improvements to My Organization Performance issues have decreased since there's no longer bottlenecks on certain ESXi hosts. • Room for Improvement The GUI has been updated since I first started using Turbonomics which was a welcomed improvement. Initially the GUI was difficult to follow and find where things are. It's gotten better but the GUI could still use some work to make certain functions more obvious. • Use of Solution Approximately a year now. • Deployment Issues Deployment was quite easy, learning the product took some time but my sales contact took the initiative and scheduled a 45 minute webex to go over the product with me and my...

What is most valuable?

When you log in to Turbonomics, I find the Assure Service Performance that appears on the dashboard the most useful item. This option shows virtual machines that may need additional memory, CPU, or to be migrated to other storage to ensure... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Due to the loss of our primary VMware administrator, my colleagues had to take over managing the virtual environment. There were settings for various reservations set at one of our locations. Although memory/CPU may have been increased at... more»

What needs improvement?

Based on the way we currently use the product I do not have any recommended improvements. However, we do not have may of the automated features configured at this time.

What is most valuable?

Automated move and workload placement. Resource planning.

How has it helped my organization?

Planning for capacity is much easier now. It is relatively simple to model growth based upon expected company growth for a given cycle, allowing us to acquire the necessary hardware in time to meet the demand.

What needs improvement?

The interface could use an update. Additional options in data views and dashboards would be welcome. We would also like to see expansion made in the UCS tools that they provide, to allow viewing the entire UCS environment and not just the... more»

Network Specialist II at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

The ability to monitor and automate both the right-sizing of VMs as well as to automate the vMotion of VMs across ESXi hosts to insure that all resources are being utilized at peak efficiency.

How has it helped my organization?

We no longer have to continuously monitor our virtual environment through multiple interfaces (WhatsUp Gold, Veeam ONE, vSphere, etc.) to discover issues impairing performance. We now receive three separate reports every morning, one showing... more»

What needs improvement?

Mostly the dashboard. 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. With the newest version, the dashboard has gotten even more "intimidating", at... more»
