Used Turbonomic to manage a over-provisioned infrastructure

Project Description

Used Turbonomic to manage a over-provisioned infrastructure.

Existing hosts were max'ed out on memory usage and deploying Turbonomic allowed us to plan a memory upgrade, rather than the expensive new host deployments.

It worked better than DRS to balance the VMs across the hosts, also allowing us to release about 30% computing resources enabling us to get to a N+1 infrastructure.
