Have Turbonomic pull data from Infrastructure of Instana not Application Perspective

Have Turbonomic pull data from Infrastructure of Instana not Application Perspective. Since Instana views active VMs differently in the application perspective not all VMs show up and then does not populate to Turbonomic. But in Instana Infrastruc...

Azure Services like Databricks, or AKS that create VMs should appear as a property in those VM entities.

With these properties being visible, Customer can create policies to exclude from policies VMs that are being managed by Azure Services. Customer can create UNPARKABLE collections based on Azure Services. Right now with 1000s of VMs, there is too ...

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...

Remove requirement to set Automation level on every Volume policy

Currently, with VM policies, you can add or ignore every variable in the policy menu. By this i mean that i can have a policy blocking instance types, and i don't have to also select Manual or Automatic. I can leave that section blank and allow ot...

enable the ingestion of Azure SQL Managed Instances

Turbonomic currently ingests some Azure SQL PaaS, but not all. SQL Managed Instances are a class that should be included.

Ideas for more consumable actions

After initial deployment, it may take many Turbonomic actions to bring the existing environment to a more desired state. As a new user to Turbonomic it can be hard to digest and consume those actions and understand where to start. Some ideas to he...

Provide user notification of unsupported cloud instance type

As CSPs release new instance types and the customer deploys them to their environment before Turbo has implemented support, notify the user of the unsupported instance types. This will ensure that the user knows that action generation is suppresse...

Allow a way for app owners to see pending changes without Turbonomic access

Overwhelmingly, app owners want to know what's changing on their VMs (rightfully). Allowing them to see some sort of public dashboard of pending actions would help us greatly instead of either having to give all of them access or checking for the ...

As a user I would like the ability to configure which properties are shown in the entity information widget, so I can see them quickly without having to click 'show all' which will save me time when using Turbonomic

Currently the Entity Information does not provide much value without clicking the Show All button. Much of the information it displays is already elsewhere on the same page. Allowing customizability to the fields you see would make for more effici...
