"Monitor any physical machines, virtual servers and more from one console."

What do you like best?

The software is really complete and setup is easy : you juste have to deploy the VMTurbo virtual machine in your environnement and to provide correct credencials. After that, just use discovery and/or add your hosts (for example vsphere or xenserver).

Once completed you just have to access the web interface where you will find the dahsboard and a few usefull tabs (Invenroty, Admin, Workload, etc...). Everything is configurable, you can add, move or configure a lot of informations panels. Report section comes with a lot of predefined report but you can create your own customized reports too.

Interface is simple : there is a left pane where you can expand items (Physical machines, Storage, VM, Applications) in order to see informations you're searching for.

What do you dislike?

Well, as there are many many informations, it's sometimes quite hard to retrieve specific details but that's maybe because I'm not too familiar with monitoring softwares.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product seems powerfull and complete but I think you need to have a little experience with this kind of products to be able to use it properly.

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

The best thing for me is that I can monitor VMware and XenServer virtual machines from one place.

"VMTurbo - Must have for every data center"

What do you like best?

Encapsulates and simplifies the core troubles of a modern and next gen data center. Provides the needed insight to make smart decisions and couples that with it's own intelligence to make many of those decisions for you, further reducing risk. Highly flexible and adaptable platform allowing it to reach into the necessary parts of my data center. Has saved me countless hours while also ensuring project success without effort. Makes deployment simple yet predictable. Makes sure I get the most out of my virtualized infrastructure, which is very important for me.

What do you dislike?

Would like a free to use version for small deployments which would be helpful for my test/dev lab. Might not be a disklike as I haven't explored it but would be great to have a REST API that ties in.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gets you beyond the struggles and challenges of managing, monitoring, and scaling a modern day and next gen data center. Gives you your life back allowing more time to focus on business value add tasks or just having a personal life. Well rounded product that is worth it's weight in gold.

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

Making efficient decisions regarding my virtualized infrastructure to ensure it's optimally used and optimally performing. Hard to keep track of what's going on in a data center and VMTurbo provided critical insight and even automation to ensure things go smoothly. I don't have to babysit the infrastructure anymore allowing me more time to take on higher value tasks and projects.

"VMTurbo is currently doing what no one else is"

What do you like best?

VMTurbo is taking virtual infrastructure "monitoring" to a whole new level. Instead of the typical "threshold" and respond type monitoring, VMTurbo acts preventively to keep your environment at a user defined "good" state. Even out of the box, it can be a "set it and forget it" type tool that keeps your virtual environment running to the best of it's potential.

Other key features include:

- reclaiming wasted disk space

- out of the box reporting

- create groups of VMs by custom criteria

- simulate what adding hosts or VMs will do to your environment

- easy setup

- easy to exclude VMs from different actions with policies

Very customizable and you can get very granular with what it does and does not do from entire vCenter level all the way down to VM level.

What do you dislike?

Old clunky GUI. Certain things require a complete browser page refresh or even clearing browser cache to get things to update.

Not much else to dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely a great tool if you are willing to give it the rights to make vmotions and storage vmotions in your environment. It does have the "give recommendations" and you can manually process those moves, but if you let it do it's thing, it can relieve you of many headaches.

Also, one other thing, it has definitely been able to show us problem points. For example, we were seeing some failed vmotions and when I researched more through VMTurbo, I was able to pinpoint the problem host, mitigate the problem, and minimize downtime.

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

This tool basically is a 24/7 "keep your virtual environment optimized".

In all honestly can eliminate a full head count of work.... easily.

Also, reporting features are a great way to prove to upper level management the need for additional hardware for your environment. VMTurbo will tell you to provision a new host based on your environment's utilization. Also, with the planning tool, you can simulate potential or planned future growth and thus get exactly what you need.

No more being crazy over provisioned. VMTurbo will allow you to save money if you feel you are just "buying more hardware" so you don't get caught off guard. So, instead of being too over-provisioned, you can actually know exactly what you need and when you need to buy more.
