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.

From customer perspective, the savings that are presented in Turbonomic Dashboard do not reflect the actual savings as these savings are compared against the advertised rates. However, typically, customer has savings plans and discounted rates and...

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...

Reserved Instance Coverage Graph should ALSO be about % of costs not just % of machine hours.
