Product Reviews
VMTURBO FABRIC CTRL MOD SUP 1Y is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A performance-based application that provides automatic planning on every type of infrastructure. Valuable Features:It is a performance-based application that provides automatic planning on every type of infrastructure, i.e., the on-premise or cloud.Room for Improvement:When you have a congestion in your infrastructure you don’t have to resolve these kinds of problems, the solution is proactive and automatic to take the better for your application when they need it.Use of Solution:I have used this solution for two years.Stability Issues:We never experienced any stability issues.Scalability Issues:We never experienced any scalability issues.Technical Support:I would give the technical support a 10/10 rating.Previous Solutions:Previously, we were using vRealize Operations IT Manager (vROps) but it wasn't as granular as Turbonomic.Initial Setup:It is very easy to set up, i.e., one VM to deploy with one week to audit your infrastructure and then, add the first recommendation.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:It is easy for licensing the physical core CPU.Other Solutions Considered:This is the best solution.Other Advice:With this product, the admin IT takes time to do other kind of jobs and not to resolve problems.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are Turbonomic distributors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We were able to visibly see the future deployments and the impact that it would have on the existing environment. Valuable Features:* Visibility: Prior to using Turbonomic, we had absolutely no insight into which resources our applications were utilizing.* Automation: I have a small number of IT staff and the automation provides a number of huge benefits. The operational tasks are handled by Turbonomic which dramatically reduces the burden on my team, freeing up their time to concentrate on improving the IT infrastructure as opposed to reactive ‘fire-fighting’. The VMs are correctly spec’d to the workload’s demands (with no user impact and performance degradation) circumventing any chances of human error.* Plans: We were able to visibly see the future deployments and the impact that it would have on the existing environment.Improvements to My Organization:Due to the VMs being correctly sized, we had an instant increase in the resources and saw an immediate CapEx saving, as we were in the process of purchasing new equipment.Room for Improvement:The current Flash user interface is sometimes slow, but the new HTML5 interface is already in development.Use of Solution:I have used this solution for two years.Stability Issues:There were no stability issues.Scalability Issues:There were no scal issues.Initial Setup:The setup was very easy. Deployed the OVA, assigned a static IP and linked it to our hypervisors. Saw recommendations to improve our infrastructure within minutes.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:The pricing and licensing are fair.Other Solutions Considered:We evaluated CloudPhysics. We experienced issues due to the fact that it is a Cloud SaaS solution and faced bandwidth challenges, which resulted in the product being unusable.Other Advice:Immediate ROI was seen due to the reduced IT infrastructure CapEx.I highly recommend deploying Turbonomic prior to purchasing any hardware.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We were so impressed with Turbonomic that we became a partner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We can reclaim license costs and forecast future resource needs. Valuable Features:Great product! We were able to correctly size our VMs giving back CPU, Memory, and storage capacity to be used in other projects. We can now reclaim license costs and forecast future resource needs.Room for Improvement:* For report scheduling, lacks the ability to define the time of day when the report was run.* Needs to be easier ways to define N+1 capacity when looking at cluster statistics.* Can't wait for the HTML5 version. The flash sometimes has response issues.Use of Solution:We have been using this product for over a year.Deployment Issues:We had issues when trying to deploy the solution on a LINUX VM. We ended up abandoning it. Instead, we used the Turbonomic packaged SUSE instance. We had no issues with that deployment.Stability Issues:Occasionally after changes in our environment, we often needed to restart the Tomcat service on the instance.Scalability Issues:There were no issues with scalability.Customer Service:Customer service was great. They were always responsive.Previous Solutions:We did not use a previous solution.Initial Setup:The installation was very straightforward.Implementation Team:We implemented this solution in-house.Other Solutions Considered:We evaluated vRealize Operations.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has reduced our hardware costs by allowing us to purchase only the necessary resources instead of over purchasing out of caution. Valuable Features:The most common features we use are the reports for VM performance and the planning tools. We use the planning tools to right size hardware purchases when replacing old hardware. It takes the guess work out of switching hardware platforms.Improvements to My Organization:It has reduced our hardware costs by allowing us to purchase only the necessary resources instead of over purchasing out of caution.Room for Improvement:The automated resize of VMs requires caution. Make sure you properly configure this feature before it is enabled.Use of Solution:It's been a while. ~5 yearsDeployment Issues:NoStability Issues:NoScalability Issues:NoCustomer Service:Wonderful. They have strong technical support that is very willing to dig into problems.Technical Support:Wonderful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have made use of the planning tool to project when in our migration and modernization project we would need to procure new hardware. Valuable Features:We have VM placement in automated mode and currently have all other metrics in Recommend mode. We also have made use of the planning tool to project when in our migration and modernization project we would need to procure new hardware.Improvements to My Organization:It has helped us to show real resource usage in order to justify or deny application owner requests for additional resources and has helped us to right size our VMs to reclaim wasted CPU, memory, and disk space so we can avoid additional hardware procurement.Room for 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.Use of Solution:6 months plus an extended 3 month POC to convince our IT leadership of it's usefulness.Deployment Issues:No issues with deployment. It went very smooth.Stability Issues:I've had to reboot the appliance once to regain ldap login abilities.Scalability Issues:We've actually reduced our host footprint by using Turbonomic to right size things as we modernize and migrate.Customer Service:Excellent customer service. We've had help with setting up custom reports and anytime we need to increase our license count it is a quick turnaround.Technical Support:Excellent. Not many technical issues so far, but have been very helpful and knowledgeable. We will use them to get us migrated to 5.9 on CentOS from our current 5.7 on SUSE.Previous Solutions:Just vCenter Server combined with years of experience with VMware to make resource determinations.Initial Setup:Initial setup was very straightforward. OVF download and deployment to live application in less than 30 minutes.Implementation Team:We implemented in-house but had a vendor team in for group training to show us how to better use the tools.ROI:I'm not the finance guy, but being able to shrink our host footprint by 66% while increasing our virtualization would seem to me to be very advantageous.Cost and Licensing Advice: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.Other Solutions Considered:Yes we did. We evaluated vRealize Automation and while I liked some of the additional features, for what we needed it for in our environment, Turbonomic was the better choice financially.Other Advice:Take advantage of the deployment team to learn the best way to use it to your advantage in your environment.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has increased the utilization of our hosts without sacrificing performance. Valuable Features:Automating migrations and implementing storage recommendationsReportingPlanning toolImprovements to My Organization:It has increased the utilization of our hosts without sacrificing performance. We can run more VMs over a longer period of time without needing to purchase additional hardware. The Plan tool is great as you can create a plan and save it for the future. It allows you to configure the plan however you need it to determine what is needed. For example, I use the plan tool for capacity planning through out the year where it used to be a manual process. I now how plans that I can run and within minutes the report will let me know what we need and where.I no longer need to keep a watchful eye on the environment. Turbonomic provides assured performance. Anything that we don't yet have automated, it will make a recommendation to improve the performance of that particular server.Room for Improvement:There is a lot of information and to get a plan or report correct is a little trial and error. Once you get used to the interface and how it works it does get easier.Use of Solution:For about 4 yearsDeployment Issues:None. Its very easy to implement. Deploy the OVA, connect to your environment(s), configure your custom settings particular to your Company and your done.Stability Issues:I've never encountered issues with stability. We did need to increase the memory on the appliance because we have a very large environment.Scalability Issues:NoneCustomer Service:Their customer service is second to none. Any time I've had to contact support, they've answered it immediately and correctly.Technical Support:Excellent!Previous Solutions:At a previous place of employment we used vfoglight which was just a terrible product. Turbonomic doesn't even compare because it doesn't monitor your environment and send alerts. It prevents alerts from ever happening.Initial Setup:Very straightforwardImplementation Team:I implanted it myselfROI:It was within a 12 months of deployment. it would have been sooner had we been able to enable all recommendations.Cost and Licensing Advice:N\AOther Solutions Considered:N\ADisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We now have a perfectly balanced load across our clustered hosts. Valuable Features:I'm primarily using Turbo for rightsizing VM's and to prove to application owners that the software vendor's system requirements for reserving huge amounts of resources isn't necessary.Improvements to My Organization:With VMware's DRS aggressiveness turned down and allowing Turbo to manage the load, we now have a perfectly balanced load across our clustered hosts, which could easily be off by as much as 30-40 percent even on the very aggressive settings in VMware before Turbo.Room for Improvement:The reporting module has a very big potential, but really lacks pre-defined reports for all kinds of purposes. I often find that the report I need doesn't exist, even though I know the data for it is available.Use of Solution:1 ½ yearDeployment Issues:No issues, even upgraded to the new CentOS appliance and went through backup and restore of the database without any issues along the way.Stability Issues:NoScalability Issues:It's best used in a clustered environment, and a bit cumbersome to maneuver around in when installed in a single host environment.Customer Service:Excellent!Technical Support:Excellent!I have had several webex sessions to where there techs very professionally addressed some questions or issues i had.ROI:It has saved us from purchasing new hardware in 4 regional offices and had us extend the service instead of buying new servers for two years, (HPe Gen8 and Gen9 servers running on 5th year) so it has easily returned the investment we had in purchasing Turbo.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This toolkit has some hooks that allows us to up size VM's on the fly based on the user's current utilization. Valuable Features:The automation, of course.Improvements to My Organization:This toolkit has some hooks that allows us to up size VM's on the fly based on the user's current utilization.Room for Improvement:Decrease the cost.Use of Solution:3 YearsDeployment Issues:Needed to upsize the DB shortly after deployment. Also configuring for a highly secure environment required a lot of file tweaks in the Linux subsystem.Stability Issues:NoScalability Issues:NoCustomer Service:Excellent - they've always been quick to support any issues, queries we have.Technical Support:Excellent.Previous Solutions:DRS - Built in tool didn't provide adequate migrations and no reporting about overall health.Initial Setup:Complex - highly secured environment. Had to change many of the system configs to make it more secure.Implementation Team:We implemented this ourselvesROI:Not trackedCost and Licensing Advice:NoDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
