Comments: Turbonomic was a product we reviewed for over a year along with some other competitors. Installation was very easy and data was collected within minutes, where other solutions took longer to populate information. Once data was collected we turned on automated vMotion to allow our clusters to further be balanced. Reporting has been great and shows us where in our Clusters we can improve and recover resources.
Also planning for new projects with servers to be deployed takes 15 minutes now versus 5 business days with spreadsheets and calculations. The planning module is what help sell the product even showing us that we can turn a host off and get away with 4 instead of 5.
Product Support is very proactive and the ability to have tickets auto created for issues is a plus within the appliance configuration. Also follow up from Support is top notch even if the issue has not been addressed.
