Have a simple interface for bulk-adding targets

When adding new features, like initial install of multiple vCenters or adding Databases to an existing installation (pretty much any type target that may have multiple entities), on the "add target" screen have the option to select a CSV file for ...

Turbo should not recommend Disk Size changes for Azure HyperScale DBs - they autoscale.

Allow for CPU Increment Size in vCPU Scaling Controlsto be extrapolated from "Change" field

We, like many customers, require the ability to increment by 2 (avoid odd number of cores) regardless of scaling control type. Currently, the tool only allows for that to be adjusted if we change "Virtual CPU". We need more granularity in ways we ...

CPU pinning workloads

As a user, I’d like to express a tolerance for CPU and memory for whole-core increments, like what we did for throttling. I'd like to set equal CPU request and limit (for OCR). PM update to requirement: We will implement support for rightsizing CP...
