Product Reviews
VMTURBO FABRIC CTRL MOD SUP 1Y is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from You can deploy the OVA/QCOW2 file to multiple hypervisor platforms or use a RHEL distribution. Valuable Features:The most valuable features are the planning tool, the policy engine, workload charts, and the extensive library of dashboards.Improvements to My Organization:We use Turbonomic to fully optimize the use of our infrastructure. We also use it for health checks and assessments we perform for our customers.Room for Improvement:The current UI (Adobe Flash) is very clunky and inefficient; however, their new HTML5 UI (in Demo mode) will be GA in late 2017.Use of Solution:I have used it for two years.Deployment Issues:We have not encountered any deployment issues. It went very smoothly. You can deploy the OVA/QCOW2 file to multiple hypervisor platforms or use a RHEL distribution instead.Stability Issues:Aside from the Flash-based UI needing to be refreshed, it is very stable.Scalability Issues:One Turbonomic instance supports up to 10,000 VMs, so no, scalability was not an issue.Customer Service:Customer service is great.Technical Support:Technical support is great.Previous Solutions:I have used vRealize Operations Manager a lot for VMware solution monitoring. I changed to Turbonomic because it is a vendor-agnostic platform that can be used for monitoring, but really is an automation and control platform for optimizing your entire environment.Initial Setup:Initial setup was straightforward: deploy OVA, assign IP address, log in as administrator, configure your targets, done. You can be up and going within 60 minutes.Implementation Team:An in-house team implemented it.ROI:I typically see a 30%-40% ROI in the first year.Cost and Licensing Advice:Try the solution out; it is easy to set up and the first 30 days are free. After that, scope your requirements and talk to Turbonomic about the cost of the solution and then NEGOTIATE a discount.Other Solutions Considered:Before choosing this product, we evaluate d VMware vROps, ManageEngine AppManager, and OpManager.Other Advice:Try it out for free and see how quickly it can optimize your environment.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:I work for RoundTower Technologies and we are a Platinum partner of Turbonomic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helped us right size a number of VMs and helped reduce CPU ready time. Valuable Features:Reporting, Dashboards & DRS.Improvements to My Organization:Helped us right size a number of VMs and helped reduce CPU ready time.Room for Improvement:Maybe a cleaner backend. HTML5?Use of Solution:Over 1 year.Deployment Issues:No issues. Simple to deploy. The team helped set up the appliance and were quick to help with any custom requests.Stability Issues:No issues yet.Scalability Issues:No.Customer Service:Very good. Very quick response times.Technical Support:Very good. Knowledgeable staff.Previous Solutions:No.Initial Setup:It was fairly straightforward to set up and anything we could not figure out ourselves the team had a solution for us very quickly.Implementation Team:In house/directly with VMTurbo.Cost and Licensing Advice: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.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, vROPS.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creating custom dashboards is easy and gives quick visibility into a specific groups of systems or metrics. Valuable Features:The default dashboards give an excellent view of the current health of the virtual infrastructure. But its not just current health, it give sensible recommendations for remediation. Creating custom dashboards is easy and gives quick visibility into specific groups of systems or metrics.Improvements to My Organization:We have been able to get the most out of our hardware investment as its being used more efficiently. Virtual machine resource over and under commitment quickly filters to the top and can be addressed. We are also using the storage integration module which allows us to track storage performance from virtual machine to storage controller.Room for Improvement:When trying to view a trend at 4+ day period, the trend lines tend to flatten out and move to a single data point a day.Use of Solution:We have been using this product for about 2 and a half years.Deployment Issues:No issues and it can't get any easier. Love the virtual appliance deployment.Stability Issues:None.Scalability Issues:None.Customer Service:I'm in contact with our Customer Experience Manager every month.

Deploy OVA.Step 2. Connect to vCenter.Step 3. CompletePretty Straightforward.Implementation Team:In-house.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once it is set up and running, it works behind the scenes to run the VMs as efficiently as possible based on the available resources. Valuable Features:Turbonomic (VMTurbo), once it is set up and running, works behind the scenes to run the VMs as efficiently as possible based on the available resources.Improvements to My Organization:Turbonomic, per its design, finds bottlenecks and, depending on how it is configured, recommends actions and takes action to resolve the bottlenecks. Bottlenecks could be related to RAM, CPU, disk IO, etc.Instead of buying more RAM for ESX hosts, Turbonomic managed the VMs in a more efficient way than DRS. The software makes recommendations of increasing the number of ESX hosts.After our ESX lease was up and we purchased new hardware with more RAM, we continue to use Turbonomic in our development and UAT lane. I expect to use this product when using the cloud as the cost of CPU and RAM in the cloud will be prohibitive.Room for Improvement:Turbonomic is not easy to use out of the box. It took a two-day session with an on-site tech to get up to speed.The product's economics terminology is initially foreign to a system administrator.There are many options in this application and if the admin is not using the app frequently it is easy to forget.Use of Solution:Six months.Customer Service:Customer service was pretty responsive.Technical Support:Technical support was pretty responsive. Issues that could not be immediately resolved were escalated to Engineering/development.Initial Setup:We got help from an on-site tech to perform the install.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monthly reporting is more detailed now and we can see where improvements can be made within the environment. Valuable Features:The ability to automate moving of VMs, Capacity Planning and Reporting have been invaluable to our monthly reporting.Improvements to My Organization:Monthly reporting is more detailed now and we can see where improvements can be made within the environment.Room for Improvement:None at the moment.Use of Solution:Been using it for about 1 year in Free mode but have had some trials for PoC.Deployment Issues:No issues were encountered and deployment was simple and straightforward.
