What do you like best?

I love that it finds over provisioned items and right sizes them as well as the other direction, finding servers that need more power and giving it to them. All along making your clusters much more efficient, saving on cost, and improving performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It prevents over and under provisioning of VM's automatically. It also helps in workload placement and storage optimization. In more than one case it located orphaned, and temporary files in our infrastructure that were consuming an excessive amount of space unnecessarily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The scheduler for actions that require reboots could be implemented better. Identifying the proper way to handle non disruptable and selectively disruptable workloads can be a challenge. Also, I think the VM targeting could be improved on . Writing queries to target VM's while very powerful, is not the most intuitive method of targeting resources.

While the product now does support cloud platform management, as of the time I wrote this, it only supports VM infrastructure in the cloud. We do not use this currently as we have chose to stick to service offerings only in the cloud and therefor we cannot yet benefit from the cloud and multi cloud offering. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would encourage getting additional training and implementation services. The value the Turbonomic team can provide on how to get the most out of the product is well worth the investment. In many cases they can offer additional assistance post implementation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We reduce wasteful spending and performance issues by automatically right sizing VM's and optimizing workload placement. This has allowed us to run a more efficient datacenter in many ways, from consumption, to new hardware purchases, to future hardware planning, to labor hours consumed not having many of the aspects managed manually.

What do you like best?

Turbonomic provides insight and recommendations into our Azure cloud configurations designed to allow optimum efficiency and cost. By analyzing the load on demand, the product can sense when more resources are needed as well as when resources are being wasted.

In the first month, we ran this as a POC. It saved us over 5k a month in costs by implementing its recommendations. The product continues to save us money but constantly updating its pricing files from Azure with current promotions and regional costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

More Azure features are needed. They started with AWS and are now ramping up Azure features.

We would like to see more visibility into reserved instances in Azure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you do a POC first so you can see the benefits this product will bring. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its ability to scale up and down on demand allows for maximum cost efficiency. By dynamically analyzing our loads, the product can sense if resources need to be adjusted. It can also tell if another configuration of the same power would be cheaper in another region. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I personally like the fact that once you have your rules defined you really don't have to do any thing else with it, its automation handles the majority of your needs on its own. The fact that it isn't threshold based also adds great flexibility as it guarantees the optimal usage across everything available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My only detractor is the lack of custom reporting that is available in the current version. They are supposed to be adding that feature back in in a future version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Over allocation and continual right sizing needs of virtual machines. We have allowed Turbonomic to handle all sizing using its automation so when we have requests we simply tell folks that its handled objectively will size as appropriate. It has cut our workload in this area by 95% Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ability for Turbonomic to constantly monitor both on-prem and off-prem workloads to assure performance and optimize our infrastructure and costs is great. While we are still rolling out the automation, the benefits already gained are great! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are several key data points that we have needed to download or export into a spreadsheet but the UI is very limited in that regard. There are a few widgets that allow for exporting the data to csv or xls but not nearly enough. Also, the reports are pretty basic and not very easy to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So far we have used Turbonomic to better balance our infrastructure by automating workload placements. We have also automated scale up/down actions for a couple non-prod environments. We are also using Turbo to run capacity plans and migrate to cloud plans. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the fact we can easily use see the difference of old automation and just looking and seeing a mostly if not perfectly balanced cluster between cpu/memory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The largest dislike I have is that the support bundles are very large. For someone with a slow connection it can take a long time to upload the logs. Not really an issue with Turbo, more an issue with me having stone age internet. :) Turbo has said they are working on fixing things to be maybe ability to target specific support logs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automation is a big problem. Turbo has better balanced both our Storage and our Hosts.

I also use the storage automation for reclaiming arrays. We can easily setup a rule to evacuate luns that are being lifecycled and let Turbo move the data onto the new storage.

What do you like best?

The ability to set policies in which CPU and MEM are balanced automatically based upon usage. It creates a hands off approach to administering host level monitoring and we have learned to trust the tool to handle this level of administration for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We thought we would have the ability to do storage level forecasting based upon usage. Put another way, we were hopeful that Turbonomics would be able to analyze our storage usage and the growth of our environment and then make predictive recommendations for when we need to procure more storage. We attempted this feature with the storage module but found that it wasn't quite what we were looking for. Manual forecasting was still required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to remove the day-to-day host level management of CPU and MEM utilization has been a great benefit, especially in a constrained environment. It's allowed our team to work on other items within our organization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best feature of Turbonomic is workload automation. Using this we are able to automate rightsizing of production workloads. This works immediately for on-premise workloads and can be scheduled for out of hour for Cloud and disruptive resizes (resize down on-premise for example).

Additionally, the ability to plan workload migrations between on premise locations or to public cloud is extremely useful to ensure the success of migrations and clearly visualise costs associated with that activity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Scheduling of workloads in public cloud requires additional effort over and above that for on premise workloads and could be made simpler. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Run a POC in your environment as the tool will show results within 24-48 hours of setup which will most likely provide all the evidence you need of its value. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially we reduced physical on-premise infrastructure with our first deployment with produced an ROI within 3 months of deployment. As we matured with the deployment and invested in a public cloud use cases we were able to make significant savings (more than £200,000 per year) on our cloud running costs using the workload resizing capabilities of Turbonomic.

We are able to get the most our of our existing hardware, by letting Turbonomic make CPU and memory decisions, and placing things on the correct host. This has enabled us to delay purchasing additional hardware, and also gives us great insight into the virtual environment.
