Rated 4 out of 5 by from There are three main areas that we find priceless. The automation, planning/forecasting and reporting. Valuable Features:There are three main areas that that we find priceless. The automation, planning/forecasting and reporting.Improvements to My Organization:The reporting has allowed us to quickly evaluate our VM infrastructure and where we stand on a day to day basis. The planning/forcasting feature has allowed us to plan for additional hardware. At times it has saved us lots of money when we did not need to purchase additional hardware even though we thought we would.Room for Improvement:The new HTML5 version is not as user friendly as I had hoped.Use of Solution:We've had Turbonomic deployed for about 12 months now - plus the initial trial periodDeployment Issues:Deployment was very straightforward. Transition from trial to fully licensed was just as simpleStability Issues:Turbonomic has been very stable. Honestly we forget it's even running. Until we need to look at a report or have growth/expansion plans for our infrastructure.Scalability Issues:No we have not. Initially we used it for our Production Cluster but have recently expnded it to our SQL Cluster without issue.Customer Service:They are fast, polite and knowledgable.Technical Support:They are on par with customer service "fast, polite and knowledgable".Previous Solutions:No we did not use anything before hand.Initial Setup:Straightforward with no issuesImplementation Team:implemented in-houseROI:It has saved us from buying lots of hardware that we would have bought if it werent for Turbonomic. The planning/forcasting tool is the most valuable feature. This feature alone will pay for itself because it saves you from purchasing undneeded hardware in the first year alone.Cost and Licensing Advice:The pricing is very compititive and much cheaper than VMware.Other Solutions Considered:VMware Operation ManagerOther Advice:Any company with a virtual infrastructure should have TurbonomicDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has freed up space on our VMware hosts to allow optimized utilization of our resources. Valuable Features:Automated sizing and moves for VMs based on real-time usage statistics.Capacity planning for purchasing new hardware.Improvements to My Organization:It has freed up space on our VMWare hosts to allow optimized utilization of our resources.Room for Improvement:The only area of improvement that I can think of is re-sizing recommendations are not able to be based upon working hours of a day or typical load times. So you have a VM that gets pounded from 7AM-4PM, but then pretty much goes dorment. Turbonomic makes it's recommendation over a 24 hour period not during time windows you can specify. You do however have the option to restrict automated resizing actions within a certain window (So Turbonomic doesn't resize during peak times). I just wish there was a way to base resizing recommendations during a snapshot window instead of a 24hr period.Use of Solution:2 years and just renewed for a 3rd.Deployment Issues:No issues at all, was pretty straight forward to get up and running. Plus the support team was nothing short of excellent!Stability Issues:No issues at all.Scalability Issues:None.Customer Service:10+ Everyone at Turbonomic we've worked with have been top-notch and extremely knowledgeable about their product.Technical Support:10+ same as above!Previous Solutions:No we did not. Found Turbonomic at a conference and was impressed with their solution and ran with it.Initial Setup:Straightforward, extremely user friendly.Implementation Team:In-house.ROI:I don't have a dollar number handily available, but as mentioned before it has definitely freed up server resources, giving us space back on our hosts.Cost and Licensing Advice:Reach out to the Turbonomic team directly and work with your local rep so that you can get the best solution/pricing available to you.Other Solutions Considered:We didn't evaluate any other vendors.Other Advice:If you're looking for a solution to give you a deeper dive into how your VM environment is being utilized and to provide some optimization; then you can't go wrong with Turbonomic!Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Provides automation of cluster resource management. Valuable Features:Provides automation of cluster resource management.Improvements to My Organization:This has saved us a great deal of expenses by better balancing workloads across ESXi hosts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 or CPU. Valuable Features:When you log into 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 performance. The product can be configured to do all of this automatically, but I like have more control of the changes. Plus, the way we have our storage configured, it is best that one of the admins selects which data store a machine is migrated to. I also like the reporting feature and have several of them set to automatically generate and email to me at the end of the month. One in particular, shows snapshots that are still on the virtual machines. This prevents forgotten snapshots from existing for weeks, months, or even years.Improvements to 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 some point on these systems, it was not until Turbonomics recommended increasing the reservations that we realized these settings were in place.Room for 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.Use of Solution:I have had the solution deployed for about four or five years and been through several software revisions.Deployment Issues:No issues with deployment.Stability Issues:No issues with stability.Scalability Issues:There have been no issues with scalability. Currently, it is used to monitor several hypervisor environments including XenServer, VMware, VXRail, etc.Customer Service:The customer service has always been very responsive and friendly.Technical Support:Technical support responds quickly and always keeps you updated on any issues that may require some research. One of the processes is uploading or exporting a copy of your current environment. This give support a copy of your environment to try to replicate a problem if needed.Previous Solutions:We previously had VCOPS, but that was charged per VM and could not monitor and report on our XenServer environment.Initial Setup:Set up if relatively straight forward. There is a template to deploy and configure the initial IP address. After that, the rest of the configuration is performed through the web GUI. This includes adding various environments, setting up reports, configuring actions, etc.Implementation Team:Since we were an early adopter, the deployment was performed with in-house staff on a WebEx with Turbonomiocs although it is simple enough you do not really need assistance with it.ROI:The ROI would mainly be less time troubleshooting performance issues within the various virtual environments. Since we have a mixed environment, any issues that may impact performance appear on one dashboard, regardless of the environment. This saves the team a lot of time.Cost and Licensing Advice:The pricing is fairly straight forward. 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.Other Solutions Considered:No, but as mentioned before we did have VCOPS and chose this as a replacement.Other Advice:I highly recommend this product. Particularly if you have a heterogeneous virtual environment.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
