Manage Move Automation on a non-VM level

Turbo WPA is a competitor to VMware's DRS capabilities. Considering most customers ofTurbo are virtualized with VMware, we/they need a way to handle WPA on a cluster level, instead of having to create a group of VMs based on cluster resourcing as ...

Improve adding groups to "Volumes" and "Database" policies

Currently, when changing the scope of a policy, the new scope overrides the old scope once saved. This only occurs for database policies and volume policies, not virtual machine policies. For example, if i have a policy and the scope is for group ...

VCPU Resize Min threshold does not generate compliance actions

User Story: User has an application which needs a minimum of 3 cores for multithreading. He sets the VCPU Resize Min threshold to 3 BUT the machines which have 1 vCPU don't show 3 vCPU as the target size. He wants to force this - so he'd like a ch...

When creating a volume scaling policy I want to be able to easily select groups for the policies in the same way as the VM policies work.

Currently I have to use a regex expression to include all the groups that the policy applies to. This is highly inconvenient as every time I want to add a new group to the policy I have to construct a new regex expression.

I have some move policies that are failing to produce actions due to a restriction on "Segmentation Commodity" type constraint, built off of DRS rules imported from vCenter. However, even after I turned DRS off, it is still restricting the VMs eve...

For HA workloads (consistent resize), allow Match Cores

Today Turbonomic matches utilization based on MHz. There are use cases for when teams would want to have all their vms have matching core counts. Please add functionality to match by core count for Consistent Resize capability.

allow using groups based on virtual machines as a scope for volume policies

at the moment, volume policies are only configurable by resource group. we want machines that in lots of different resource groups to be in scope for a policy

automated & time-bound exclusion of certain VMs from downsizing due to CTO mandate

Customer story. The CTO mandates certain VMs are excluded for a certain time from the standard downsizing policies which run at each month end. Current process is a bore - manually pulling these machines into a RECOMMEND ONLY OVERRIDE group (leavi...

Add group filter "Cloud Tier" for Database Servers entities

If you want to create a group with all databases with version db.r6g as example, you can't use the cloud tier as a filter. Customers can't limit the resize to his own family, since Turbonomic is not RI RDS aware.
