Turbonomic Pricing, License Cost and Setup

Stephen Baker
System Administrator at UL Workplace Health & Safety
Price is a big one. VMTurbo was very competitively priced. We also were able to get additional modules that helped us with our specific needs without much more costs. View full review »

Only license what you want to monitor, this product will monitor everything connected to your vCenter unless you restrict the access of the service account. having the restrictions in place ahead of deployment can make for a much easier time dealing with the licenses. Pricing-wise this wasn't the cheapest but it also wasn't the most expensive. I was more looking for something to fit my needs than something affordable so price wasn't something I put too much thought into. View full review »
Rodney Barnhardt
Server\Storage Administrator at a manufacturing company with 501-1,000 employees
The pricing is fairly straightforward. It is based on the number of physical CPUs. There are no per-VM licensing fees. There are also various modules. For example, if you want to monitor your SAN environment, there is a separate license for that feature. View full review »
Sean Hook

Turbonomic was able to accommodate our perhaps unique needs in purchasing. Capital expenditures are easier for our team to make versus subscriptions Operating expenditures. Turbonomic offered both models and made it easy for us to even switch between them. View full review »

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. View full review »
MattEllis
Sr. Infrastructure Engineer at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Definitely more cost effective and with nearly the same options as other more expensive solutions. Licensing is per socket, so load up on the cores rather than a lot of lower core CPUs. View full review »

Negotiate and analyze how you want to use the product and which systems you report against. You don't need to monitor all of your systems. I have a lot of small, remote locations that have two hosts and under 10 VMs, and it is not worth spending money for those sites. Let VMWare HA/DRS handle it, because you are probably not going to run into performance or scalability issues. View full review »

Nothing specific, just to only license what you need. For us, we license only our production environment. It would be at least a 25% increase if we licensed our development/test environment too. View full review »

Darragh O'doherty
Senior Systems Administrator at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
It is an expensive product so we have only licenced the critical hosts in production. Some of the features may not work if your VMware hosts are not licenced. Features such as DRS will not work unless you have a cluster licenced for DRS in VMware. Therefore the workload placement VMTurbo tries to carry out will not work as the VMs will not migrate.
