On-Premises (Hypervisor & Storage & Network)

Showing 32 of 2978

Dollar value for on-prem scaling - just like Cloud. Each action has a saving/cost to it.

The customer would like Turbo to put a price tag on each action. They want to be able to tell how much adding vMem or vCPU or a combo. to a VMware VM costs. The customer is aware that it depends on a bunch of things (cost/hr of host, cost/hr of da...

Allow to be build a policy to generate VM delete action for VM being idle for a defined number of days or VM delete actions or at least a list of VMs probably no longer used (minimal CPU usage, no networktraffic, etc.)

Based on Idea TURBO-I-450 (meature and display days a VM is being idle) please allow to set a policy to generate delte actions for VMs beiing idle for x days. In addition to that, allow to set a policy as it is available with all the cloud optimiz...

Include VIO Servers in the PowerVM support

I think it is important to support VIO Servers in the PowerVM support. At least add an option to allow the user to include VIO Servers. We used to have data/recommendations for VIOS when we were using Densify, so we knew we need to right-sized the...

To be able to change Scaling Target VMEM Utilization for On-Premises

Currently, almost all of my SQL Servers are considered to not have enough memory according to Turbonomic as it appears to want 70% free memory. This was told to me by support. This threshold is way above what VMware and Microsoft consider to be be...
