When we scope to a group of VMs, we need a view/report to show all the VM Names, and the Name of the Host they are running on.

When we scope to a group of VMs, we need a view/report to show all the VM Names, and the Name of the Host which each VM is running on. One way to do this is to add the host name column on the "List of Virtual Machines" tab view. It would be nice i...

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...

Extend Turbo's parking/suspending capabilities to on-premises VMs

Extend Turbo's parking/suspending functionality to VMs in vmware/hyper-v enviornments. For all the same reasons Turbo supports parking VMs in the cloud, Turbo should extend this functionality to on-prem workloads. By turning off idle resources, Tu...
