My subscriptions: Billing & Costs & Discounts

Dolar and local currency

In Brazil, for customers who have AWS and another cloud with Azure and GCP, there is a big problem with the numbers displayed. In the latest version of Turbonomic, the local currency for Azure and GCP are default and AWS is necessarily in dollars....

Report on Amortized Cost Per AWS Account

We need Turbonomic to report amortized costs per AWS to match what is being reported in CloudHealth (and ultimately what is being charged-back to Application owners).

Azure offer reservations for Azure CosmosDB. Can we see and recommend CosmosDB reservations please?

Azure offers 65% discounts on COSMOS - this can save the customer a lot of money if properly managed. Turbo could help the client make the right decisions. Rightsize FIRST - then Recommend COSMOS RI SECOND

It would be desirable if multiple currencies could be handled by one Turbonomic

Currently, only one currency symbol can be set, so if AWS (USD) and Azure (Yen) are mixed, it will be confusing. Each time, we create a group just for AWS and refer to that dashboard, which is cumbersome.

Support for centralized Azure Hybrid Benefit (centralized AHUB)

Azure came up with Centralized AHUB support for SQL licenses. Similar in concept to CUDs, where the customers can create a pool of licenses and have the SQL instances (SQL databases, managed instances etc ) consume the license from the pool. When ...

Support for Azure SQL reserved capacity

Product doesn't currently support Azure SQL (PaaS) reserved capacity. This functionality is similar conceptually to Reserved Instances for VMs; however, it applies to SQL. Impact: Turbonomic will potentially create pending actions to scale a SQL d...
